    Book Description

    This new series 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 practising 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 chess skills and knowledge.

    The Torre Attack is a popular opening, especially at club level. White's development plan is straightforward and there are clear tactical and strategic goals. Sometimes White plays quietly; on other occasions he suddenly launches a direct attack against Black's king, and many quick victories arise because this unexpected aggression catches Black off guard. In this book, renowned opening expert Richard Palliser answers all the key questions and reveals everything you need to know about the opening.

    • Essential guidance and training in the Torre Attack
    • Includes repertoire options for White
    • Important ideas absorbed by continued practice

    • My System
      Aron Nimzowitsch was one of the greatest chess players of the 1920s and 1930s, ranked just behind the famous World Champions Alekhine and Capablanca. His reputation as an author is higher still.

      My System is at the top of a very short list of chess classics. Nimzowitsch's ideas have had a profound influence on modern chess thinking. Most chess masters will at some point have studied Nimzowitsch's work, and not to have read My System is by many regarded as a shocking gap in a chess player's education.

    • How to Play the From Gambit
      Henry Bird's 1.f4 has become the choice of many players who wish to avoid the voluminous theory surrounding 1.e4, 1.d4 and even 1.c4. If Black plays passively then he is likely to find himself in an inferior line, especially if he allows a reversed Dutch defense. But there is an exciting alternative to the main lines - the From Gambit! With l...e5 Black makes it clear that he is willing to fight. The lines which arise often involve forced piece sacrifices for both sides, and knowledge of the middlegame ideas is critical.
