Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Insightful manual by noted grandmaster offers detailed insights into the real significance of the opening. 30 games are analyzed between such masters as Petrosian and Korchnoi, Karpov and Kasparov, Gligoric and Kaplan, and more, showing how strategic themes of the opening are carried through all applicable phases of the game. Intermediate-level.

Synopsis:

True chess mastery demands a thorough understanding of the game's opening nuances, and this guide by an international Grandmaster offers detailed, seldom-discussed insights into the real significance of the opening. Restricting his approach to exploring lines that lead to closed positions, the author focuses on complete games of strong players, describing the important strategic themes of the openings and then demonstrating how these themes should be carried through all applicable phases of the game. Thirty games appear here, including contests between such masters as Petrosian and Korchnoi, Karpov and Kasparov, Caligoric and Kaplan, and others. All are geared toward showing readers how to play strategically clear openings more successfully. Chess players at every level will find a wealth of instructive tactics and techniques in this informative work.
