ABC of the Chess Openings - Andrew Martin - 2nd Edition

Product Code: WIN0126CB

Description

In the all new ABC of Chess Openings International Master Andrew Martin explores the diverse possibilities available to everyone in the opening phase of the game. The material is broken down logically into Open Games, Semi-Open Games, Closed and Semi- Closed Games, Flank and Irregular Openings. Invaluable advice is given about what to look for and how to play each specific category, and the instruction is enhanced by the use of recent, thematic master games to compliment this advice. General instruction about how to play the opening is also included.

There is something here for everyone. Strong and even very strong players will enjoy the investigations into some excellent modern novelties, whereas the average player or even beginner will pick up a wide range of interesting ideas for use in their games. The author's love for the game comes through in this work, which he tries to communicate to the listener. The 2009 edition includes some repertoire suggestions for White using 1. e4 to get the average player started.

Video running time: 5 h 09 min + 1 h 15 min (Update) = 6 h 24 min.
