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 inspiring, but cannot decide amongst the numerous choices available? Look no further for the answer! In "Dangerous Weapons: The Pirc and Modern", prominent opening specialists take a revolutionary look at two popular and closely related openings. But instead of traveling down well-trodden and analyzed paths, the authors concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations, 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 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 opponents off balance. Features include: the Pirc and Modern in a completely new light; packed with original ideas and analysis; and, a large array of weapons to shock your opponents. Richard Palliser, Colin McNab and James Vigus are all highly respected authors who are renowned for their creative opening ideas and expertise.
