You are all geared up as Black to play a sharp main-line opening - but then White opens with some unusual first move. Every chess player knows how disconcerting this can be, and how easy it is for Black to land in trouble if he reacts incautiously. This book is the first time that a master has provided sound practical advice on how to handle both the white and the black side of these openings. Dunnington's commonsense approach to such openings as the Bird, Nimzo-Larsen, Sokolsky and Grob is based on his many years of experience of club, weekend and international chess. This book contains concise coverage of White's alternatives to 1 e4, 1 d4, 1 c4 1 Nf3. It is written by an expert on subtle flank openings and equips the reader for all key transpositions. It explains winning strategies for White and Black.
