Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You may be happy with your main openings – sorted with the Sicilian and content with the Kings Indian – but are you afraid of the unknown? Do you fall to pieces if your opponent plays something strange in the opening? Heres some good news... Beating Unusual Chess Openings is a godsend to those chess players fed up with struggling against all opening moves other than Whites main two: 1 e4 and 1 d4. From the respectable (English Opening, Réti and Kings Indian Attack) through to the offbeat (Nimzo-Larsen Attack, Birds Opening) and the totally bizarre (Orang-utan, Grob); everything Black needs to know about facing unusual openings is covered within these pages. Richard Palliser gets to grips with all of Whites possibilities, examining their strengths and weaknesses and in turn organizing a reliable and practical repertoire for Black. He discusses the key strategies, tactics and move-order tricks for both sides, arming the reader with enough know-how to face this assortment of chess openings with renewed confidence.

*Everything you need to know about facing unusual openings

*Written by an openings expert

*Ideal for improvers, and club and tournament players
