    Good Ideas in the Opening

    First of all, unlike many other authors who write books on an opening system they suggest, there appears to be little if any bias in the openings selected. I like getting the ideas of numerous authors on what they recommend (also like the system in the Chess For Juniors Series, and A Killer Opening Repertoire, which I have combined with this one). The choice of using the Grand Prix Attack is a good one against the Sicilian (either 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 or as in the Chess For Juniors series, 1.e4 c5 2.f4 with 2...d5 being met by 3.Nc3). However, I have rejected the suggestion to play the Scotch Gambit, as I question its soundness, and I don't like the type of game you get into. Lines against the French Winawer are great but against the Caro Kann I don't like. So you see, you take what you like and reject what you don't like as part of your system. What I have done is put together what numerous authors have suggested to form my 'own opening system' as outlined in chart format like in 'Winning Chess Tournaments'. There is some really good analysis in Alburt's book on openings for both White and for Black (you should get his book on his system for Black too - the Nimzo-Indian is great!). He does an excellent job telling you the ideas behind the openings!
