CLEARANCE - The Semi-Open Game in Action

Product Code: CB0383RB

Alternative Views:


The semi-open games, in which Black responds to 1 e4 with a move rather than 1...e5, are a combative group of openings. Black announces that he is going to try for more than simple equality, and the game frequently becomes an aggressive fight. In this second book of a four-volume series, former World Champion Anatoly Karpov looks at recent developments in the Sicilian, Caro-Kann, French and Pirc-Ufimtsev (or Modern) Defenses. Complete games from recent Grandmaster play are analysed in depth, so that reader sees the logical connection of the opening to the middlegame (and beyond).

This is an excellent book for players wishing to improve their understanding of the openings, as well as being a highly entertaining survey of major developments in recent Grandmaster practice.
