Book Description

This is a new series which provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practicing of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge.

Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved, and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general skills and knowledge.

1...d6 can be employed as a universal defence to any White opening, making it an ideal practical weapon for Black. In this book, Cyrus Lakdawala invites you to join him in examining a cocktail of challenging lines with 1...d6.

He shares his experience and knowledge, studies the typical plans and tactics for both sides, and provides answers to all the key questions.

  • Presents a repertoire for Black with 1...d6
  • Includes tactical and strategic exercises
  • Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study
