Book Description

Tired of playing the same old openings? Bored with stuffy opening theory? This book provides a welcome antidote!

Former American Open Champion Cyrus Lakdawala presents a range of vicious weapons for White in a repertoire which is perfect for those who have little time for study, but enjoy taking opponents out of their comfort zones and causing them problems from the very beginning.

The repertoire's backbone is provided by the aggressive Veresov Opening (1 d4, 2 Nc3 and 3 Bg5) and this weapon is accompanied by equally hostile options against other Black tries such as the French, Caro-Kann, Dutch, Benoni, Pirc and Philidor. These weapons are ideal choices for those who revel in forcing opponents into chaotic, uncomfortable positions.

  • Opening weapons to shock and confound opponents
  • Covers all of Black's main defences
  • Includes game summaries with key points to remember
