    Book DescriptionIn 1998 a slim volume by IM John Donaldson explored the crafting of a sophisticated but easily assimilated group of interrelated opening strategies intending to establish small but lasting advantages. The result, A Strategic Opening Repertoire was an instant success. Now this second edition, revised by Danish FM Carsten Hansen with the assistance of John Donaldson, is greatly expanded - twice the size, with many more games and detailed explanations.

    The lines presented here - based on 1. Nf3 2. c4 and 3. g3 - will serve a player well throughout his career as they are based on positional ideas with an emphasis on understanding rather than memorizing. They will not fall because of one sharp novelty. The aim of playing 1. Nf3 is to head for queenside openings that restrict black's counterplay. And using this repertoire, you will invariably find yourself on more familiar ground than your opponent.
