How to play against 1. d4

Product Code: B0314EM


Publisher: Everyman Chess
Author: Richard Palliser
Year of Publication: 2010

Pages: 256
Notation Type: TBD

Book DescriptionFinding a suitable defence to 1 d4 isn't an easy task, especially if you don't have endless time available to study all the latest theoretical developments. If you choose fashionable openings, it's imperative to keep pace with modern theory if you want to succeed with Black.

Those who are unwilling to become slaves to opening theory need not fear - this book provides a solution. Renowned opening expert Richard Palliser advocates the Czech Benoni, an uncomplicated, low-maintenance but effective opening in which the importance of understanding ideas and tactics far outweighs the necessity to memorize move sequences. Palliser examines in detail both the Czech Benoni and the closely related Closed Benoni with 1 d4 c5, and he also explains what to do against various Anti-Benoni options.

* Czech Benoni and 1 d4 c5 repertoires for Black

* Covers key positional and tactical ideas for both sides

* Ideal for improvers, club players and tournament players.
