Grandmasters choose openings based on practical considerations, taking into account their ability to attack and defend, to play an endgame, to be ready (or unprepared) for a long fight.
Lovers most often just imitate their idols and prefer the currently popular top-level systems. A more ridiculous approach is difficult to imagine! Fashionable systems are constantly being improved, they regularly apply complex novelties & mdash; their mechanical repetition will not help to achieve high results.
At the same time, there are correct, insidious for the opponent debuts, which in our time for various reasons have receded into the background. It is from such debuts that it is most advantageous to create your repertoire for future champions. This book offers chess players a carefully thought-out and already built up a full debut repertoire that helps them achieve tournament victories, driving their opponents to well-studied positions with thoughtful game plans.
For a wide range of chess lovers.
