by James Schuyler
Publisher: Everyman Chess, 2013
Edition: Paperback small
Welcome to the Dark Knight System, a weapon which can be used against virtually every opening White can play!
In the Dark Knight System, Black begins with 1...Nc6 and adopts a dark-square strategy. The Dark Knight System is a potent mix of several other openings, blending portions of the King’s Indian, Pirc, Scotch and Tango, but it contains many independent lines too.
It forces White onto his own devices very early on in the game. When forced to improvise, even strong players are prone to playing weak moves or expending their time and energy in the opening.
In this book, FIDE Master James Schuyler invites you to join him in a study of his favourite Black opening. Drawing on over 25 years’ experience with 1...Nc6, he presents a repertoire for Black, studies the important tactical and strategic ideas, examines key issues such as move orders, and tells you everything you need to know about the Dark Knight System.
