Book Description

This is a new series which provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practicing of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge.

1...d6 can be employed as a universal defence to any White opening, making it an ideal practical weapon for Black. In this book, Cyrus Lakdawala invites you to join him in examining a cocktail of challenging lines with 1...d6.

He shares his experience and knowledge, studies the typical plans and tactics for both sides, and provides answers to all the key questions.

  • Presents a repertoire for Black with 1...d6

  • E-DVD FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 56 - Win with 1...d6 Part 1
    The first of two videos on systems with 1...d6, this one based on the flexible Czech System (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6).

    The Czech System introduces a fascinating area of opening play, where with well-timed counter-measures Black aims to destabilize the whole White set-up. The Czech is much less susceptible to direct attack than a regular Pirc Defense.

    Part 1: Pseudo-Austrian 4.f4
    Part 2: Aggressive Lines 4.Be3/4.Bg5/4.f3
    Part 3: Classical 4.Nf3
    Part 4: Quiet Systems 4.g3/4.a4
