This series shows you how to start your chess games as dynamically and accurately as the greatest grandmasters in the world.
Three-time US Champion Champion Lev Alburt, famous for his ability to turn aspiring players into masters, teams up with two-time U.S. Champion Roman Dzindzichashvili and young international star Eugene Perelshteyn to give you a complete repertoire of opening play-as well as a review of all openings and an explanation of the principles of playing this crucial stage of the game. And although these books concentrate on the first 20 moves or so of a chess game, they never leave you hanging without a plan. The authors make sure you know the themes and ideas so that you can follow up your great opening play with winning strategies.
Chess Openings for Black, Explained covers the game from the black side. The authors thoroughly ground you in the grandmaster-openings of modern chess, teaching you the opening that scores highest against 1. e4 on a master level. Fully illustrated with two-color chess diagrams throughout.
