FCO: Fundamental Chess Openings


The first moves on a chess game define the nature of the whole struggle, as both players stake their claim to the critical squares and atart to develop their plans. It is essential to play purposely and to avoid falling into traps or reaching a position that you don’t understand. This is not a book that provides masses of variations to memorize. Paul Van Der Sterren instead offers a wealth of ideas and explanation, together with the basic variations of each and every opening. This knowlegde will equip players to succeed in the opening up to good club level, and provide a superb grounding in opening play on which to build a more sophisticated repetoire. The strategies he explains well, unlike ever-changing chess opening theory, remain valid as long as chess is played, and so the time spent studying this book will be rewarded many times over.
