Playing 1.e4 - Caro-Kann, 1...e5 and Minor Lines by John Shaw

https://m.vk.com/doc514041643_479998749?hash=3fcbe43c50c15b82ed&dl=89e9eb32554fb0a832 PDF

Developing a punchy repertoire with 1.e4 requires extensive research, mixed with fine judgement and a good deal of creativity. In this three-volume work, GM John Shaw supplies an ambitious and dynamic arsenal of ideas for White. The repertoire is built around main lines, with many innovative suggestions that will cause no end of trouble to your opponents.

This volume covers the Caro-Kann, 1...e5 and various minor openings. The repertoire will be completed by Playing 1.e4 – French Defence & Sicilian Sidelines and Playing 1.e4 – Sicilian Main Lines.

John Shaw is a grandmaster and three-time Scottish Champion.

ISBN: 978-1-907982-22-4 - 632 pages - Published 29 June 2016

Reviews of the author’s previous work:

“John Shaw’s long-awaited Magnum Opus The King’s Gambit is an impressively objective attempt at covering one of the sharpest openings.”
GM Michael Adams, Daily Telegraph

“The King’s Gambit is a fantastic publication that is clearly the result of a tremendous amount of work by Shaw, for which he deserves immense credit.”
GM David Smerdon, ChessVibes

“It took the author five years to write this book... It’s truly a work of love.”
GM Hans Ree, New in Chess

Reviews
"So a couple of gripes there, but they shouldn't detract too much from the excellence of the book in general. Viewed in the light of the French sun (37C and rising!) this was worth 4 stars!"

GM Mathew Sadler, New in Chess

"This massive book – which could, quite easily, have been split into three volumes – comes dangerously close to swamping the reader with too much information. However, Shaw's skill as an author keeps things from tipping too far.

The book is structured very well and the conclusions at the end of each chapter are very welcome, allowing the reader to consolidate some of the material in an orderly and succinct fashion."

Sean Marsh, CHESS






 Playing 1.e4 - French Defence and Sicilian Sidelines (hardcover) by John Shaw

https://m.vk.com/doc514041643_479998378?hash=a22815aeec20e2480d&dl=bc6fbaf5d85ab129db PDF

Developing an effective repertoire with 1.e4 requires extensive research, mixed with fine judgement and a good deal of creativity. In this, the second of three volumes, GM John Shaw turns the analytical spotlight on the French Defence, advocating his own favourite weapon for White, the Tarrasch Variation. The final part of the book begins the mammoth task of tackling the Sicilian Defence, by considering a number of rare but tricky options available to Black in this opening.

Just like the previous volume in the series, this book is based upon a foundation of tried and tested main lines, boosted by a number of innovative suggestions that will cause no end of trouble to your opponents. The repertoire is completed by a third volume, which covers the main lines of the Sicilian.

John Shaw is a grandmaster and three-time Scottish Champion.

“A fantastic publication that is clearly the result of a tremendous amount of work by Shaw, for which he deserves immense credit.”
GM David Smerdon, ChessVibes, reviewing The King’s Gambit

Reviews
"The book contains a good mix of variations, game fragments and complete model games, and brings some new ideas into circulation.

Overall, I can warmly recommend the book to all players with a penchant for dynamic positional play, who like to play for a win from solid positions."

Playing 1.e4 - Sicilian Main Lines (hardcover) by John Shaw

https://m.vk.com/doc514041643_479998428?hash=12592e72e0d2dffa80&dl=039badb1c7a2e2f455 PDF

In this, the last of three volumes on 1.e4, GM John Shaw completes his state-of-the-art White repertoire by tackling the biggest challenge of all: the main lines of the Sicilian Defence. Just like the other two books in the series, this book is based upon a foundation of tried and tested main lines, boosted by a number of innovative suggestions that will cause no end of trouble to your opponents.

Including the Dragon, Taimanov, Sveshnikov and concluding with the nefarious Najdorf, this book provides everything you need to face all the major Sicilian systems with confidence.

John Shaw is a grandmaster and three-time Scottish Champion.

Review of the author’s previous work:

“A fantastic publication that is clearly the result of a tremendous amount of work by Shaw, for which he deserves immense credit.”
GM David Smerdon, ChessVibes, reviewing The King’s Gambit

Reviews
"Overall, this book offers a wealth of new, fresh ideas and a White repertoire against the Sicilian main variations which personally convinces me more than Parimarjan Negi's work on this complex... Those who are prepared to work through the book conscientiously will certainly achieve many good positions... I highly recommend this book!"
