Produktinformationen "Burgess, 101 Chess Opening Surprises"
Most chess players are fed a set of dogmatic rules about how the opening must be played. The result: stereotyped, unimaginative play. The opening surprises in this book land like bombshells in the apparent calm of standard openings and disorientate your opponents as they grapple with original problems.
This book is a treasure-trove of unusual ideas at an early stage of the opening, each with a firm logical foundation, yet running against the grain of conventional play. Each idea has quick-strike potential and is supported by enough concrete analysis to enable you to try it with confidence.
All major openings covered
Surprises for both White and Black
Deeply researched and up-to-date
Each idea is assessed in terms of its soundness and its ability to surprise and shock
A thought-provoking introduction examines the underlying concepts of opening play and considers how the standard principles need to be modified in the light of the highly combative handling of the opening now favoured by the worId's top players.
FIDE Master Graham Burgess holds the world record for marathon blitz chess playing. He is a highly versatile chess writer, whose Mammoth Book of Chess won the British Chess Federation Book of the Year Award in 1997.
