2ND REVISED AND UPDATED EDITION - JANUARY 2009
With hundreds of changes from the 2005 original edition, including all relevant novelties in the proposed repertoire.
Every chess player needs a set of openings he can trust.
Chess Openings for Black, Explainedgives you a complete repertoire of carefully selected, interrelated openings-everything you need to know to defend with confidence against each and every one of White's first moves.
Plus you get a quick but informative review of every opening from Black's point of view, even the ones not part of the book's repertoire.
As a result, your whole approach to the openings and opening preparation, as well as your understanding of typically emerging middlegame and even endgame positions, will leap to a much higher level. So will your play.
