Dangerous Weapons: The French - Watson
About the Dangerous Weapons: The French - Watson
Do you need a well-deserved break from your normal chess openings? Are you tired of constantly having to keep up with modern chess theory? Or perhaps you simply wish to try out something new and exciting, but cannot decide among the embarrassment of choice available? Look no further for the answer! In this book, John Watson takes a revolutionary look at one of the most famous and widely-played chess openings: the French Defense. Instead of traveling down well-trodden and analyzed paths, Watson concentrates on fresh or little-explored variations of the French, selecting a wealth of 'dangerous' options for both colors. Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you confident and fully armed, and your opponents running for cover! Dangerous Weapons is a brand new series of opening books which supply the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire. Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded; they are guaranteed to throw even your most experienced opponent off balance.
