SHOPWORN - Secrets of Opening Surprises - VOLUME 13

No Time to Study Opening Theory? Shock Your Opponent with an SOS!

Product Code: SW0013SB


Book Description

Secrets of Opening Surprises brings you a wide variety of unusual opening ideas. They may seem outrageous at first sight, but have proven to be perfectly playable. An SOS deviates very early from the regular lines in a mainstream opening, usually even before move six! That is why it is so easy to actually bring the variation on the board. You will baffle your opponent without having studied large quantities of stuffy theory. Please have a quick look at the SOS's in this issue
