Often your goals and ambitions will be misguided. Trying to win in 20 moves, copying what’s in fashion among top-GM’s or memorizing variations are a waste of time. Most likely you will never play your ‘preparation’ or end up by jumping from one opening to the other.
Experienced French chess trainer Vincent Moret provides a complete, ready-to-go chess opening repertoire for White with a sound set of lines that do not outdate rapidly, do not require memorization and are easy to digest for beginning players and other amateurs.
In this complete and user-friendly guide, Moret has selected relatively aggressive variations that will enhance your tactical vision. To show the typical plans and demonstrate underlying ideas and key motifs, Moret not only selected games of Grandmasters. For instructional purposes, he also uses games of young players to highlight the errors they tend to make.
