Play the English: An Active Opening Repertoire for White (Everyman Chess)

De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – February 2008
The English is a sophisticated opening which has been popular amongst players of all levels for many years: from up-and-coming players to World Champions such as Garry Kasparov and Vladimir Kramnik. One of its main attractions is its flexibility: it can lead to situations rich in both tactical and positional play; it can be played either aggressively or quietly; and opponents also have to be wary of subtle nuances or else risk falling into one of its many move-order traps.
In Play the English! Craig Pritchett produces a comprehensive and yet practical repertoire for White, presenting an answer to all of Black’s key defences, whether they are in the crucial main lines or the tricky offbeat variations. Drawing upon his wealth of experience in this opening from both sides of the board, Pritchett highlights both the positional and tactical ideas for White and Black. A study of this book will arm you with the essential knowledge to begin playing the English with confidence in your own games.

*Written by an opening expert
*All of Black’s options are covered
*Ideal for improvers, club and tournament players
