    Book Description

    Grandmaster Leonid Shamkovich was among the world's greatest chess opening analysts and theoreticians. His published works were deeply studied and used by Bobby Fischer. Here, Shamkovich creates the Master-Study of World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov's Chess Opening Repertoire, assisted by FIDE Master Eric Schiller.

    This work has been updated in 2012 to include all of the latest World Chess Championship matches by Garry Kasparov.

    World Champions exert a strong influence on fashion in opening play, and Garry Kasparov is no exception. His advocacy of such variations as the Tarrasch, Catalan and Gruenfeld has brought these openings from the back pages of opening manuals into the forefront of theoretical discussion. The purpose of this book is to explore the development of Kasparov's opening repertoire and to present the core of a repertoire which the reader can apply in his own games. All recent theoretical developments have been incorporated into the work, so that the most important variations of these openings are critically up to date as at June 2012.

    • Mastering the Chess Openings - VOLUME 2
      Unlock the Mysteries of the Modern Chess Openings
      For most chess-players, opening study is sheer hard work. It is hard to know what is important and what is not, and when specific knowledge is vital, or when a more general understanding is sufficient. Tragically often, once the opening is over, a player won't know what plan to follow, or even understand why his pieces are on the squares on which they sit. John Watson seeks to help chess-players achieve a more holistic and insightful view of the openings. In his previous books on chess strategy, he explained vital concepts that had previously been the domain only of top-class players.
