Lars Schandorff’s two volumes on 1.d4 were celebrated by reviewers and grandmasters. GM Simen Agdestein said: “I have recently been reading Lars Schandorff’s Playing 1.d4 books, thinking that it cannot possibly get more instructive than this.” Meanwhile, GM Boris Avrukh’s verdict was simple: “Lars, I want to play your book.”
Now Schandorff switches sides and offers a top-class Semi-Slav repertoire against 1.d4. The Semi-Slav strikes the perfect balance of ambition and soundness, which has made it popular at every level up to and including the world championship. Black needs to know his stuff, but Schandorff is the ideal guide to make the learning process a pleasure.
Lars Schandorff is a Danish grandmaster who is renowned for his deep opening preparation.
"Five recent offerings from Quality Chess confirm that it is the unquestioned leader when it comes to consistently publishing chess books of the highest quality...
Danish Grandmaster Lars Schandorff has the gift of producing manageable and readable opening books... Schandorff’s book is must reading for anyone who plays the Semi-Slav."
IM John Donaldson, Chess Today
"While he does not skirt the need for memory work, Schandorff offers readers sufficient and welcome signposts to assist in the task... warmly recommended."
