Tired of playing the same old openings?

Bored with stuffy mainline opening theory?

This book provides a welcome antidote!

Former American Open Champion Cyrus Lakdawala presents a range of weapons for White in a repertoire which is perfect for those who have little time for study, but enjoy taking opponents out of their comfort zones and causing them problems from the outset.

The backbone of the repertoire is provided by the aggressive Veresov Opening (1 d4, 2 Nc3 and 3 Bg5) and this is accompanied by equally hostile options against other Black defences such as the French, Caro-Kann, Dutch, Benoni, Pirc and Philidor. These opening weapons are ideal choices for those who revel in forcing opponents into chaotic or uncomfortable positions.

*A complete repertoire for White

*Covers all of Black's main defences

*Includes game summaries with key points to remember

Cyrus Lakdawala is an International Master, a former National Open and American Open Champion, and a six-time State Champion. He has been teaching chess for over 30 years, and coaches some of the top junior players in the US.
