Book Description

Playing 1.d4 – The Queen's Gambit is part of an ambitious two-volume repertoire for White with 1.d4.

The core of the repertoire from the first edition, published in 2009, is retained, but a multitude of details have been updated and improved within the lines.

This is both the same repertoire but at the same time so much more, as when a boy grows up and becomes a man – many features are unchanged, but his strength and knowledge are expanded immensely.

This book offers White an easy to remember aggressive repertoire, based on occupying the centre and then expanding. Schandorff presents the ideas and information in an accessible and entertaining style.

The repertoire will be completed by 'Playing 1.d4 – The Indian Defences'.

About the Author(s)

Lars Schandorff is a grandmaster from Denmark who is renowned on the international circuit for the depth of his opening preparation.

  • Ken Uston on Blackjack
    The Adventures of the KING of "21"!
    This book, "Ken Uston on Blackjack", is primarily concerned with the legal efforts Ken made to stop the casinos from banning card counters. Legal actions were brought in his name against the casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, New Jersey to stop them from banning card counters. The end result of these legal actions was that they were unsuccessful in Las Vegas but successful in Atlantic City. The Las Vegas Casinos still can and do ban card counters. The original edition of this book contains almost no information about how to win at Blackjack. Therefore a section has been added to explain what you really want to know, which is how we were able to win some money playing Blackjack.
