    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

    • E-DVD FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 56 - Win with 1...d6 Part 1
      The first of two videos on systems with 1...d6, this one based on the flexible Czech System (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6).

      The Czech System introduces a fascinating area of opening play, where with well-timed counter-measures Black aims to destabilize the whole White set-up. The Czech is much less susceptible to direct attack than a regular Pirc Defense.

      Part 1: Pseudo-Austrian 4.f4
      Part 2: Aggressive Lines 4.Be3/4.Bg5/4.f3
      Part 3: Classical 4.Nf3

    • EBOOK - 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.
