A reprint of the 1999 classic!
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.
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.
With a unique overview, highlighting key pawn structures, outlines of plans for both sides and quick summaries of the theory, suggesting a coherent repertoire of reliable lines, it is easy for the reader to immediately sink into the material without getting lost. Then comes detailed, unbiased coverage of all the critical lines, for reference and detailed study.
Whether you're looking for a quick introduction to an opening system for surprise use, a refresher course in a favorite opening, or to research an opening deeply, this book is the ideal choice for this opening.
