CLEARANCE - The Vulture and Associated Opening Systems

Product Code: CB0235RB

Alternative Views:


For all keen chess players who dread meeting 1 d4, here is your answer in the shape of an original group of related systems, exotically named ‘Vulture’, ‘Hawk’ and Woozle’, created by the German FIDE Master, Stefan Bucker, who startled the chess world by launching his own hypermodern defensive concept to counter a white first move he hated so much. 


Despite meeting initial skepticism, Bucker’s unusual mixture of tactics and strategy fired the imagination of a wide range of players, including international Master, who contributed their own ideas to forge a redoubtable weapon in Black’s Armory. 


This completely revised and up-dated English edition is a ‘must’ for all those players who wish to escape from the stultifying effects of ‘main-line’ analysis of Queen’s Pawn Openings, and enter the relatively unexplored habitat of the Vulture!
