Chess Openings

Mike Basman
Chess Openings explains the principles which underlie correct opening play and shows how they can be developed to produce strong positions from attack and defence in different situations. Mike Basman consolidates these lessons by investigating five classic openings -the Queen's Gambit, Giuoco Piano, Nimzo Indian, Morra Gambit and Sicilian Dragon - which together can be used to form the basis of a formidable opening repertoire.
