This new series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge.
Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.
The Torre Attack is a popular opening, especially at club level. White’s development plan is straightforward and there are clear tactical and strategic goals. Sometimes White plays quietly; on other occasions he suddenly launches a direct attack against Black’s king, and many quick victories arise because this unexpected aggression catches Black off guard.
In this book, renowned opening expert Richard Palliser answers all the key questions and reveals everything you need to know about the opening.
