The highly acclaimed SOS series provides intermediate chess players with perfectly playable, easily digestible opening ideas: deviations from main line opening theory in a very early stage of the game (usually before move six).
Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of the chess opening will be able to apply these SOS-ideas in an actual game.
There is no need to study large quantities of stuffy theory, but there is an almost immediate return on the investment of a limited amount of time. Readers of SOS will baffle their opponents, gain crucial time, and stand a good chance to get an advantage in the game.

Readers of this series can ignore large areas of the ever expanding chess opening theory.
They can concentrate on these surprising ideas, because SOS variations deviate very early from the regular lines in mainstream openings.
Ideal for players who don’t have enough time to keep abreast with main line theory.
