Ultimately, most of us play to win and, we'll try anything legal, including playing a "system" which often can wriggle into a King's Pawn opening (French, Pirc, Philidor, Caro-Kann, or Pirc Defence) by beginning with 1. d4! Seven chapters concentrate on avoiding the Richter-Veresov proper. However, seventeen chapters do concentrate on a straightforward method of play which can involve excitement, combinations, and daring as much as any other chess opening. Over 550 game citations are offered, including 21 by master Veresov and 10 by master Richter. Modern grandmaster treatments are seen by Mestrovic, Miles, and Morozevich - the M&Ms. This comprehensive 1999 study is the first since Bellin's 1983 work.
This new series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.
Even less-experienced chess players have learnt how to develop their pieces in the opening or even know certain opening variations by heart.
