Editorial Reviews

If you’re still using outdated opening manuals and never had the time to update your repertoire, here’s your chance! Take up the gauntlet and dazzle your opponent’s with key developments as well as fresh ideas, which are still to be tested in practice. Regarding sharp opening systems, as a rule, the best prepared player tends to get the upper hand. With this book and its content you’ll ensure that you are on the cutting edge of current theory!  Rating: *****(5/6) Recommended!- Structuring this book around 51 model games makes it more readable but this is definitely a serious opening tome in which explanatory prose takes a back seat to concrete analysis and assessment of variations. Accordingly this book is best utilized by players rated 2000 on up.- Chess Today
