    by Andrew Soltis, 135 pp.



    Book Description
    A Complete Opening System with 1.f4 and 2.b3. There are 20 important revisions and four complete games added to this 2nd edition 1996. This is a “left handed Dragon variation” where White has an extra tempo and Black cannot break open the Queen file. White will occupy the center from the flank with his 1.f4. This is to control “e5”. Laying in wait is the white Bishop on b2 to help with the K-side attack. “This opening retains life because of its unique features and creative possibilities and it’s a lot of fun to play.” – Soltis

    • Grandmaster Preparation
      In this remarkable book, Soviet grandmaster Lev Polugayevsky, one of the world's leading players over the past two decades, describes his highly personal approach to chess, which is based on meticulous practice. In the opening, he is constantly striving to surprise his opponents, and this has led to his developing one of the sharpest lines in the Sicilian Defence, which has rightly become known as the Polugayevsky Variation.

    • The Sniper
      Play ...g6, ....Bg7 and ...c5!
      The Sniper is a dynamic and universal opening weapon for Black which can be used against all mainline openings. Black's system of development with ...g6 and ...Bg7 initially allows White to occupy the centre but, in true hypermodern style, Black strikes back immediately with ...c5. The Sniper can lead to original or barely-known positions in which Black can strive for the initiative. It's also rich in move-order possibilities, with potential transpositions into Sicilian, King's Indian or Benko-type positions.

    • Mastering the Chess Openings - VOLUME 2
      Unlock the Mysteries of the Modern Chess Openings
      For most chess-players, opening study is sheer hard work. It is hard to know what is important and what is not, and when specific knowledge is vital, or when a more general understanding is sufficient. Tragically often, once the opening is over, a player won't know what plan to follow, or even understand why his pieces are on the squares on which they sit. John Watson seeks to help chess-players achieve a more holistic and insightful view of the openings. In his previous books on chess strategy, he explained vital concepts that had previously been the domain only of top-class players.
