    Book Description

    Eight years after his acclaimed "The Chess Advantage in Black and White", grandmaster Larry Kaufman is back with a completely new repertoire book, covering the entire scope of chess openings for both White and Black, in one tome.

    Using the latest versions of top engines like Komodo and Houdini, the former Senior World Champion and computer expert has refined his analysis of ready-to-go and easy-to-digest lines almost to perfection.

    His main new conviction is that 1.d4 gives White better chances of an advantage than 1.e4, and he has changed his recommendations accordingly.

    Larry Kaufman has based his repertoire on sound, practical lines that do not outdate rapidly and are suitable for masters while accessible for amateurs. He regularly and successfully uses the openings he recommends himself.

    The Kaufman Repertoire for Black and White contains many improvements on existing opening theory and offers a good balance between narrative and variations.

    • Dutch Leningrad
      The Dutch Leningrad (1. d4 f5 2. g3 Nf6 3. Bg2 g6) is one of Black's most dynamic responses to the queen's pawn opening. From the first move, Black stakes a strong claim on the kingside, laying the groundwork for a potential attack on the white king. The Leningrad variation is a popular choice at club and tournament level as well as amongst grandmasters; it is a regular feature in the repertoires of Vassily Ivanchuk, Veselin Topalov and Mikhail Gurevich.

    • New Sicilian Gambits
      GM Soltis: "If white gets to attack in the Sicilian Defense anyway, why should he offer a pawn or two for the privilege? The answer is that black gets to counterplay in the Sicilian and his counterplay is usually as good as white's. That, in fact, is what makes the Sicilian popular. There are plenty of familiar Sicilian gambits(like the Smith Morra and Wing, which this book doesn't even cover). But in the last few years, a number of new ideas arising out of positional variations, have been discovered and found to pack a wallop for white". Here are six new white gambits against the Sicilian that the reader will have to attempt to destroy black!
