The second volume explains the basic principles of the opening, discusses how to build an opening repertoire and produce opening novelties, and explores the connection between the opening and the later stages – the middlegame and the endgame.
The materials of this book have been made out of lectures read at sessions of the Dvoretsky/Yusupov chess school, with the most interesting articles on the given topic. It's intended for players wishing to deepen their understanding of chess in general and the opening stage in particular, and to learn to work independently on the opening.
