Incl. Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

Brought together in one volume as part of Everyman Chess’s new series of compilation books: Play the Caro-Kann (2007) and Play the Slav (2008)

In Play the Caro-Kann , International Master Jovanka Houska presents the reader with a concise and trustworthy repertoire within this move, providing a solution against all of White's main options, and efficient methods to deal with tricky sidelines. Houska examines the important tactical and strategic plans for both sides, arming the reader with enough information to begin playing the Caro-Kann with confidence in his or her own games.

The Slav has a well-deserved reputation as one of Black's strongest answers to 1 d4, and it's no coincidence that it has been used by almost all the World Champions in chess history. Put simply, the Slav is a classy opening, one which combines reliability with the promise of dynamic counterplay.

In Play the Slav, James Vigus presents a comprehensive and trustworthy repertoire for Black. He outlines the main ideas for both sides and highlights the tactics to watch out for. This book will provide you with enough knowledge and skill to play the Slav with confidence in your own games.
