Overview


One of the hardest tasks competitive chess players face is the development of an opening repertoire suited to their own style of play. In view of the limited time most players have to study, an economic and well-designed repertoire is essential, but it is sometimes difficult to know where to start. In this book, translated by Ken Neat, Grandmaster Gufeld makes the job easier by providing an ideal framework for a practical opening repertoire, specifically tailored for those who relish attacking play. For example, this book includes practical repertoire based on 1 e4 as White and the Sicilian and Dutch Defenses as Black. It focuses on attacking lines of play, offers sugestions against all the opponent's main alternatives, and begins with an explanation of the basic principles of opening strategy. Grandmaster Gufeld is one of the most popular and widely traveled players on the international circuit. He has competed in no less than eight Soviet Championships and is known throughout the world as a coach, opening theoretician, journalist and author.
