Queen's Pawn Openings
by Andrew Martin
Queen's Pawn Openings such as the Trompowsky, the London System, the Colle System, the Torre Attack, etc, crop up all the time at club level. From time to time they are popular with Grandmasters too! It is essential to be prepared for these openings. If you are not prepared, players who use these openings will steer the game in the right direction for them and the wrong direction for you.
IM Andrew Martin presents solutions for Black against a remarkable array of QP Openings: the Trompowsky, the Pseudo-Trompowsky, the Torre Attack, the Colle System, the Colle-Zukertort System, the London System, the Stonewall, the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, the Prie System 2.a3, the Reversed French, and even 1.d4 Nf6 2.g4?!. Move orders with 1...d5 and 1...Nf6 with either ...g6 or ...e6 are all covered. You may not agree with all of Martin's suggestions, but you are sure to find a comfortable antidote to these systems among the choices he presents. This is just what the club player needs.
