    Entertaining Fun / Traps and Zaps to Watch Out For

    This entertaining book is categorized by many openings (e.g. Sicilian, French etc) other than the standard fare openings of e4/e5 d4/d5; it's not only fun but has some traps and "zaps" to watch out for for the chess player who is not playing standard book lines in these types of openings.

    Adds more to Chess Openings Traps and Zaps 1

    You are going to find a continuation of the fundamental opening traps from the first volumn (Chess Openings Traps and Zaps 1). This certainly forms a whole lot of traps. But just as with the first volumn there is little or no elaboration on what should have been done in place of the blunders that lead to the trap being allowed. Very little commentary is provided making this book less instructive for the reader.

    Not as good as it's previous

    There was very little focus on the variations of each section due to the mixture of several different opening variations in each section. However it has somewhat improved my game by eliminating my own mistakes. This book is more suitable for beginners
