The Gambit Guide to the English Opening: 1...e5
by Carsten Hansen
PDF | 258 Pages | 13.2 MB
The 1...e5 systems of the English Opening lead to positions rich in tactical and strategic subtleties,
making them suitable for players of all standards and temperaments. These lines have not been properly
covered in chess literature for twenty years, and this thoroughly researched book fills a gaping void.
The main systems covered include the Reversed Dragon, where the position is balanced on a tactical
knife-edge; the tense Closed lines, where Black adopts a King's Indian set-up; the fashionable lines with
a very early ...Bb4; and the main lines of the English Four Knights, as used in many top-level games.
The unique GAMBIT System makes it easy to use the book to the maximum practical advantage.
"Quick Summaries" introduce the main themes of each system, where appropriate suggesting a coherent repertoire of reliable lines.
Then comes detailed, unbiased coverage of all the critical lines, for reference and detailed study.
