Beating 1e4 e5: A repertoire for White in the Open Games by John Emms
Grandmaster and leading chess author John Emms presents a complete repertoire for White in the Open Games, based on Bc4 and the ever-popular Giuoco Piano. The lines he advocates are built upon a sound yet aggressive system of development which can be deployed against virtually every Black defence, and the emphasis is firmly on the understanding and accomplishment of ideas rather than the difficult process of memorizing theory. Emms covers both the main variations and the tricky sidelines, and highlights key areas such as tactical and positional ideas for both sides and crucial move-order subtleties.
* A Grandmaster’s repertoire in the Open Games
* Provides answers to all of Black’s defences
* Ideal for improvers, club players and tournament players
