    Book Description  Smith & Hall: "We emphasize that the Max Lange sometimes involves main line analysis beyond 20 moves! For this reason, the student must assimilate as much as possible of the following material as possible. The better prepared player in the Max Lange will have the advantage over an opponent whose recollection of these venerable lines is hazy or incomplete. If White is the better prepared, he should win; if Black is the better prepared, he should draw, and only have a chance to win if he is the better player in unclear positions." You are given an opening that will stun your opponents even if he is a GM. If you know the main lines it is 99% sure your opponent does not. Just play 1.e4 and hope you see 1..e5 played!

      In this Chess Openings for Hustlers Volume II the author looks at both the Accepted 3.exd6 and the Declined 3.Nf3 and 3.Bf4. The idea of this gambit is well worth the effort of the player who wants to learn an aggressive Black defense against 1.d4 where white doesn't control the flow of the game. The book contains 155 games divided into variations with light analysis played by a variety of players ranging from Master to class C. A player index has been provided which lists players grouped by "Class" to help the reader evaluate the games.

      When faced with the Sicilian Defense, you have to make the choice to either wade through a maze of variations in the main line or diverge early into a relatively lesser known system. The early advance of white's f-pawn fits this objective perfectly. White gains more space in the center and kingside with 2.f4, forming the basis for lasting pressure and often leading to violent attacks against the black kingside. After 1.e4 c5 2.f4, this variation fell out of fashion int he early 90's due to 2..d5. But take heart! Smith and Hall show that this variation still has some venom!
