Publisher: Everyman Chess, 2010
Edition: Paperback medium
Are you tired of playing the same old openings again and again? Perhaps it's time for a change and here’s the answer: choose Dangerous Weapons and amaze your opponents with new and exciting opening ideas!
In this book, three renowned opening experts get together to take a revolutionary look at the Dutch Defence, one of Black's most ambitious answers to 1 d4.
In doing so they take the road less travelled and concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations - selecting a wealth of 'dangerous' options for both colours.
Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you confident and fully-armed, and your opponents running for cover!
Dangerous Weapons is a series of opening books which supply the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire.
Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded. However, the one thing they have in common is that they are guaranteed to throw even your most experienced opponents off balance.
• The Dutch Defence in a completely new light
• Packed with original ideas and analysis
• Ideal lines to shock your opponents.
International Master Richard Palliser, Grandmaster Simon Williams and FIDE Master James Vigus are all highly respected authors who are renowned for their creative opening ideas and expertise.
