What does a chess player need who is familiar with the rules, but often gets into trouble right away in the opening? This question was the starting point for the authors before they began to compile their material. The result is a book that gives explanations to help the reader understand the Queen's Pawn Openings and instructions to show him how to use them.
With this work, the reader gains access to systems that are very popular today, such as the Trompowsky Attack and the London System, or surprise weapons such as the Richter-Veresov Attack or the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, of which the latter has enjoyed a loyal following of fans for many decades and is therefore surrounded by a very special aura.
The main systems are presented in 11 chapters, which are de- signed according to the guidelines of the series 'read – understand – play'. The openings are explained in detail, with the authors paying special attention to the presentation of the inherent ideas and plans to ensure that the reader understands them properly instead of just playing moves that he has learned by heart. Even the meaning and purpose of a single move may be explained, insofar as it is important for understanding.
Based on the knowledge that the reader will surely acquire by studying this book, he will be able to use the discussed Queen's Pawn Openings with the white and the black pieces in an appropriate way. At the same time, the work offers one or the other new idea that can surprise even an experienced opponent and promises interesting, entertaining and – last but not least – successful chess games.
FM Jerzy Konikowski has published a large number of excellent opening books. Uwe Bekemann is a national master in correspondence chess. He is the author of books on gambits and the co-author of many others.
