It is the chess-player''s holy grail: a flexible repertoire that gives opponents real problems but doesn''t require masses of memorization or continual study of ever-changing grandmaster theory. While this book can''t quite promise all of that, Watson offers an intriguing selection of lines that give vast scope for over-the-board creativity and should never lead to a dull draw.

The repertoire is based on 1 d4 and 2 c4, following up with methodical play in the centre.
