Publisher Comments:

Start every game with confidence!

The two greatest challenges for beginning chess players are not only to survive the openings phase, but also to choose appropriate attack and defence formations in the process. WINNING CHESS OPENINGS shows you how to do both. In Yasser Seirawan's entertaining, easy-to-follow style, you're shown formations that can be used with other White or Black pieces.

WINNING CHESS OPENINGS explains how to:

Build a safe house for a king

Estimate losses of ten moves or fewer

Utilise the elements: time, force, space and pawn structure

Plan strategy based on time-tested opening principles of play

Employ a defence for Black against any White opening

Apply an opening for White used by World Champions

WINNING CHESS OPENINGS will help you develop a solid understanding of opening principles that you can apply to every game you play - without having to memorise a dizzying array of tedious and lengthy opening lines.
