The Kaufman Repertoire for Black and White: A Complete, Sound and User-Friendly Chess Opening Repertoire

Every competitive chess player needs to decide which openings he wants to play. Selecting a set of moves to employ, with either white or black, against each likely countermove by your opponent is a daunting challenge that takes a lot of time and effort.Grandmaster and former senior world champion Larry Kaufman provides a ready-to-go repertoire for both colors that is based not on what on what is objectively ‘best' (meaning the most popular in recent grandmaster play), but on what is easy to digest for amateurs. Kaufman has selected a range of sound lines that do not outdate rapidly, do not require the memorization of lots of theory and can be played with confidence. The recommended openings are not razor-sharp but contain enough venom for the white side to strive for a clear advantage and for sufficient counter-chances on the black side. Kaufman presents his material with a good balance between narrative and variations and also provides common-sense guidance on how to evaluate positions. This manual, a completely revised and updated edition of ‘The Chess Advantage in Black and White', provides a practical and reliable chess opening repertoire for a broad audience.

Review

Kaufman isn't fobbing the public off with Mickey Mouse sidelines. He keeps thinkgs simple, but lucid. The book serves a purpose and does this very wll. I have been hunting for something like this for a while. Thanks, Mr. Kaufmann, my search is over!
--International Grandmaster Glenn Flear

The various systems are well thought-out and link up with each other almost perfectly. I liked the abundant verbal explanations a lot.
--Martin Rieger, Europa Rochade Magazine 

Kaufman focuses on active, strategically sound variations. Stronger players will be able to quickly scan an opening and pick up ideas, while the openings are indeed also suitable for the average player. Pleasant to read and easy to handle - Extremely useful.
--International Master Arthur van de Oudeweetering, Chess Vibes
