The Veresov is a surprising and tricky system that, in the right hands, can be a powerful attacking weapon. In this book, Grandmaster Nigel Davies arms the reader with an all-in-one repertoire with the white pieces, with the Veresov being the central line. Davies delves into the secrets of the opening, explaining both the tactical and positional ideas, and highlighting the main plans for both sides.
