Product Details

One of the hardest tasks faced by competitive chess players is the development of an opening repertoire suited to their own style of play. As in their companion volume An Opening Repertoire for the Attacking Player (also translated by Ken Neat), the authors provide a refined and thoroughly up-to-date opening program, this time selecting variations of a more positional nature.

  • Practical repertoire based on 1 e4 as White and the Classical Sicilian and King's Indian Defenses as Black
  • Concentrates on solid and reliable lines of play
