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

  • The Colle System Koltanowski Variation: 5. c3
    1.d4 d5 2.e3 Nf6 3.Bd3 e6 4.Nf3 c5 5.c3 and other moves where Black does not play c5. There aren't as many strategic plans and positional themes as in the Queen's Gambit; but there are still quite a lot - and that's enough for 95 percent of serious players. Against an amateur opponent, the Colle is a deadly weapon, a quick killer. Edgar Colle and his fellow Belgian native, GM George Koltanowski, registered a string of sparkling victories, many of them in less than thirty moves, with this system. He even had the great Alekhine on the ropes with it.

  • Beating the Sicilian Defense with the Short-Nunn Attack
    Wanted: Opening system needed to combat the most popular defense to 1.e4. Must be sound, flexible, and aggressive. Experience against all Black formations essential. GM's Short and Nunn came forward in the late 1980's and early 1990's to give us one catch-all system. First it was proven successful against one Black setup, and then against another and another. Its successes were registered at the highest levels. Fischer played it against Spassky in the 1992 return match! Still the most popular system against the Najdorf today.

  • Queen's Gambit Accepted - Smyslov Variation
    The Smyslov Variation was developed by World Chess Champion Vasily Smyslov and used in top level competitions by him and by other World Champions. One advantage is that it can be used frequently. If White plays 1. d4 and Black responds with 1. ...d5, White will almost always play 2. c4. Then after the natural moves 2. ...dxc4 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. e3, Black can play 4. ...g6 which is the Smyslov Variation. The Smyslov Variation is a form of the Queen's Gambit Accepted.
