Overview

The Vienna Game (1 e4 e5 2 Nc3) has a long history and a bright future. From the second move White starts to dictate the game, taking play away from the heavily analyzed Ruy Lopez and Two Knights Defense and into a totally different arena. White has great flexibility and can choose between either tactical or positional lines depending on his or her style of play. In view of this, it is perhaps hardly surprising that such enterprising players as Nigel Short, Michael Adams and Boris Spassky have enjoyed great success with the Vienna in recent years. This book provides everything you need to know to start playing the Vienna as White or Black. Through the use of model games for both sides, the author provides a thorough grounding in the key ideas, so that readers can quickly and confidently start to use the Vienna in their own games. This guide contains up-to-date coverage of an always popular opening and covers every important variation in the Vienna. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 144 pages, diagrams)
