    Opening Repertoire - 1 d4 with 2 c4
    Catalog Code: B0503EM

    In this book the highly experienced chess author and coach Cyrus Lakdawala goes back to basics, outlining an aggressive repertoire for White based on 1 d4, following up with the traditional 2 c4. The emphasis of the repertoire is to gain space as quickly as possible and set Black the task of finding quick counterplay or face the risk of being overrun. Lakdawala recommends lines with f2-f3 against the Nimzo-Indian, the Petrosian System against the King’s Indian and the Flick Knife (f4 with Bb5+) against the Benoni.

Players sometimes blindly follow rules, restricting themselves to what they have learned without even considering successfully "breaking" the rules. Such stereotypical thinking is a trap which chess players should try to avoid, and in this book, Evgeny makes a strong case for creative thinking and ways to leave the well-trodden paths and confuse the opponent with a fresh approach. Grandmaster Bareev may surprise you with this groundbreaking subject, we promise you it will be a pleasant surprise!

    How does one achieve the unique ‘sound’ and distinct technique that are absolutely necessary to become successful at the highest level? It can only be done via a deep understanding of the chess player’s personality and the unique talent that distinguishes him from other soloists. It is here that the role of a coach is of the utmost importance. First, it is necessary to understand the nature of your student’s chess talent, and second, it is important to identify the player’s character and personality traits. His style ought to be harmonious, so that the essence of the human being matches the characteristics of his chess talent. Since it is the same emotionless computer that is now in charge of the purely chess component, it falls upon the coach to deal with the chess player’s personality, mysterious and unknowable as it might be.
