    Book Description

    The Ryder Gambit is a fun opening, one which gives rise to spectacular combinational possibilities. Even a player with limited experience can create a magnificent mating attack which can be shown to friends and kibbitzers and even published in local chess magazines. The fans of this opening are true lovers of this royal game and even if their enthusiasm is unjustified by objective analysis, it is nevertheless one of the joys of chess.

    • FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 47 - Sidestep
      As played by Nigel Short against Garry Kasparov - 1.d4 d6 2.Nf3 Bg4 is a relatively new system with some high-class adherents. Completely sound, it leads to dynamic and unbalanced middlegames. The defense has the considerable merit of sidestepping standard theory, and is a favorite of Anand and Speelman. GM James Plaskett analyses Black's best plans against all possible White set-ups.
