Opening Repertoire : The Open Games with Black, Paperback / softback Book

Opening Repertoire : The Open Games with Black Paperback / softback


1...e5 enjoys an excellent reputation as a reliable defense against White's most popular opening choice, 1 e4.

However, anyone who is primed to face the Ruy Lopez must also be prepared to face a number of White alternatives.

This collection of variations make up the Open Games and include not only popular choices such as the Italian Game, Scotch Game, Bishop's Opening, King's Gambit, Vienna Game and Four Knights, but also many tricky sidelines and some wild and wacky gambits.

Many of these might not be theoretically strong but can be both daunting and dangerous for the uninformed player.

In this book, FIDE Master Martin Lokander tackles all these lines head on and presents a practical repertoire for Black in the Open Games.

This book tells you everything you need to know about facing the Open Games when White avoids the Ruy Lopez. *Essential reading for 1...e5 players *Every opening bar the Ruy Lopez is covered *Packed with new ideas and critical analysis
