Meeting 1. d4 & 1. e4
Jacob Aagard and Esben Lund provide an all-on-one solution to the popular opening move 1. d4 and other White systems that do not involve 1. e4. The lines suggested are based upon the Tarrasch Defence (1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 c5). They are easy to learn and fun to play, whilst also promising the black player counterplay. This book is especially useful for players who have neither the time nor inclination to learn reams of the latest opening theory. Throughout this work, the authors delve into the strategies, ideas and tactics for Black, while also showing the possible traps and pitfalls.
Russian International Master Alexander Raetsky draws upon his wealth of experience gained while playing on the tough international tournament circuit to supply you with a complete repertoire for Black against 1. e4, based on the ever-reliable Sicilian Defence. Lines suggested are dependable and promise Black dynamic counterplay. The variations are easy to learn: this book is especially useful for players who have neither the time nor inclination to learn rams and reams of the latest opening theory.
