Product Details

Mihail Marin completes his opening repertoire for White with 1.c4, the English Opening, by covering 1.c4 c5. The theory is state-of-the-art with many novelties suggested, but most useful of all are Marin's lucid explanations of how to play the resulting positions. Mihail Marin is a grandmaster from Romania. His previous books for Quality Chess have established him as one of the world's best chess authors. Marin's recent tournament successes, using this repertoire, increased his rating to a personal best of 2616.

  • "Mihail Marin's excellent repertoire books on the English Opening have helped to cement the reputation of Quality Chess' Grandmaster Repertoire series... Marin's deep experience and passion for the English Opening is clear throughout the book... If you've even the slightest inclination towards the English Opening, this trio of books is strongly recommended." GM Luke McShane, New in Chess
  • "Marin introduces numerous new ideas that lead either to a small advantage for White or at least produce an annoying initiative that can keep Black on his heels... Without reservations, I recommend this volume to all English Opening players. 4 Stars (out of 4)" Carsten Hansen, ChessCafe
  • "One of the outstanding chess books of 2009 was volume one of Romanian Grandmaster Mihail Marin's trilogy on 1.c4...

I give Marin's three volumes series on the English my highest recommendation." IM John Donaldson
