Chess Openings explains the principles which underlie correct opening play and shows how they can be developed to produce strong positions for attack and defence in different situations. Mike Basman consolidates these lessons by investigating five classic openings - the Queen's Gambit, Giuoco Piano, Nimzo-Indian, Morra Gambit and Sicilian Dragon - which together can be used to form the basis of a formidable opening repertoire. AUTHOR: Mike Basman is a leading chess theorist whose ideas have been used to defeat former world champion Anatoly Karpov. Mike became an International Master in 1981. He is an early pioneer of audio chess, is editor of the magazine Popular Chess, and teaches chess in his local Surrey schools. ILLUSTRATIONS: 392 diagrams
