Starting Out: The Open Games in Chess
The "Open Game" refers to a myriad of chess openings arising after the ever-popular 1.e4 e5: the Italian Game, the Scotch, The Two Knights Defense, the King's Gambit, the Evans Gambit, the Bishop's Opening, the Four Knights, the Petroff and much more besides. In this book, Glenn Flear goes back to basics, introducing the key moves and ideas, the chess strategy and tactics of each opening and taking care to explain the reasoning behind them - something that has often been neglected or taken for granted in other works. He places particular emphasis on the lines that players are most likely to face.
The Starting Out series has firmly established itself as the leading guide to studying chess openings for up-and-coming chess players. These books are ideal for enthusiasts who don't necessarily have extensive knowledge of the openings in question and who wish to appreciate the essential principles behind them.
