"...a solid and dependable repertoire with some punch where theory isn't constantly changing. ... a much more nuanced approach. ... better chances for an opening advantage and fresher play" – IM John Donaldson, USA Team Captain

A good opening repertoire need not require an enormous amount of study to be highly effective. A cunning choice of lines and move-orders can steer the game to positions that we like and deny the opponent his preferred strategies.

In this book, highly experienced chess opening writer Graham Burgess presents a repertoire based on 1 d4 and Nf3 with precisely those aims. Black's possibilities for counterplay - and sharp gambit play - are kept to a minimum. Our aim is to give Black exactly the type of position he doesn't want. If he is seeking blocked positions with pawn-chains, we'll keep the game fluid. If he wants complex strategy, we'll attack him with simple piece-play. Simplifications? No thanks, we'll keep the pieces on and intensify the battle. Gambits? Hardly, as we simply prevent most of them!

The main cornerstones of the repertoire are carefully chosen Queen's Gambit lines, the Torre Attack (vs ...e6), and a variety of fianchetto options against the King's Indian and related set-ups. White's position is kept highly flexible, with many possible transpositions to a wide variety of systems that the reader can use to extend and vary the repertoire. The book features a wealth of new ideas and original analysis.

FIDE Master Graham Burgess is Gambit's Editorial Director, and one of the founders of the company. He holds the world record for marathon blitz chess playing, and lives in Minnesota. This is his 23rd chess book, his earlier works including well-regarded opening guides and best-selling general texts.

"The repertoire is definitely sound and will certainly make opponents think for themselves more frequently than they do when following longer theoretical lines. By generally avoiding an early crisis in the tactical department (due to dodging gambit lines) a player adopting this repertoire should be able to improve their positional middlegame skills too, based on a good understanding of what each line is trying to achieve" – Sean Marsh,

"Crucially, this repertoire requires only moderate levels preparation compared to the main lines so many books tout. Due to the non-critical nature of the play, a player who employs it won't need to constantly keep up with new moves and changes in the theory, because those are unlikely to influence the assessment, or at any rate won't create a life-or-death situation. ... for the practical student who doesn't have time to keep up with the latest nuances, the anti-King's Indian/Grünfeld systems with g3 and openings like the Torre will get White to an interesting middlegame while insulating him from dramatic surprises. I'm already teaching a couple of these systems to students of mine, and it has served to expand their frontiers while also succeeding in terms of results. For that reason alone, I can recommend Burgess's book; with luck, we'll have the fortune to get A Cunning Chess Opening Repertoire for Black from the same author!" – John Watson, The Week in Chess

Burgess schlägt ein Damenbauernrepertoire vor, das den Schwarzen in ungewohnte Stellungen bringen soll. Das Repertoire soll dabei solide und flexibel sein.

Er teilt den Stoff in vier Komplexe:
A. Damengambit
B. Torre gegen Nimzowitsch-/Damenindisch
C. gegen das schwarze Königsläuferfianchetto antwortet er mit dem weißen Königsläuferfianchetto
(1.d4 Sf6 2.Sf3 g6 3.g3)
D. Holländisch, andere schwarze erste Züge und Zugumstellungen

Damengambit spielt Burgess mit Lf4 und dann ruhige Hauptvarianten, keine weiße 0-0-0, sondern meist Le2, 0-0 und ein wenig Druck.
Gegen Slawisch zieht Burgess 1.d4 d5 2.Sf3 Sf6 3.c4 c6 4.e3
Leider gibt es hier Probleme mit Zugumstellungen, Burgess weicht dann auf Katalanisch aus, z.B. 1.d4 d5 2.Sf3 e6 3.c4 c6 4.Sc3 dxc4 5.g3

Beim Torre-Angriff errichtet Burgess nicht immer das Bauerndreieck c3-d4-e3, sondern zieht oft später c2-c4. Das Bauernopfer 1.d4 Sf6 2.Sf3 e6 3.Lg5 c5 4.e3 Db6 5.Sbd2 Dxb2 (bzw. cxd4 6.exd4 Dxb2) ist ein wichtiger Teil des Repertoires.

Gegen Königsindisch stellt er c4 zurück. Es entsteht meist eine Pirc-Stellung mit g3. Probleme hat Burgess mit frühem schwarzem c5, z.B. 1.d4 Sf6 2.Sf3 g6 3.g3 Lg7 4.Lg2 0-0 5.0-0 c5. 6.d5 bzw.c4 passen jetzt nicht ins Repertoire, weil sich dahinter viel Mainstreamtheorie verbirgt. Burgess geht mit 6.dxc5 oder 6. Sc3 an die Sache heran, man erhält dann einen sizilianischen Stellungstyp „Drachen“ mit weißem g3.
Gegen Grünfeldindisch spielt er die ganz normale Fianchettovariante 1.d4 Sf6 2.Sf3 g6 3.g3 Lg7 4.Lg2 0-0 5.0-0 d5 6.c4.

Gegen Holländisch empfiehlt Burgess 2.

Hier wird ein durchdachtes Konzept für den Weiß-Spieler vorgestellt, wobei auch Zugumstellungen nicht außer Acht gelassen werden. Insgesamt werden Hauptvarianten und Modetrends eher vermieden, so dass man einige Spezialisten mit ihren Varianten für Schwarz sicher auf dem falschen Fuß erwischen kann, wenn man den Ratschlägen des Autors folgt.
Ich persönlich habe mit diesem Buch gefunden, was ich schon lange gesucht und oft vermisst habe.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Good and Practical Opening Repertoire for White (at last!). 28. November 2013
Von Thomas L. Ritchie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Generally chess books on opening repertoires for white tend to fall into (at least) one of the three categories: either they suggest trendy mainstream lines from opening theory that are simply too complex and overwhelming for non professional players, or they advocate general schemes (like the Colle system, stonewall attack, Torre attack, etc...) against anything black can throw at you, or yet they pick up a bunch of offbeat and dubious gambit lines to surprise your (hopefully) unprepared opponent. Fortunately this is not the case here. As stated in the editor`s review above, the cornerstones of the repertoire here are Bf4 against the QGD (not the exchange variation again!), (king`s) fianchetto systems (for white) against (king`s) fianchetto defences (for black) and `Torre structures` (1.d4 2.Nf3 3.Bg5) (relax, not the drawish, harmless and sterile ones you might guess at fist sight) against `Nimzoindian structures` (1....Nf6 2....e6), but other important black tries (such as the Slav, Dutch and Benoni) are also covered in detail as well. Personally I am not a fan of playing an early 4.e3 (after 3.Nf3) against the slav and I was not very convinced that the gambit lines recommended against the semi-slav (with a king`s fianchetto for white) may offer a hope for an opening advantage for the first player¹, but overall the lines suggested tend to lead to rich, interesting play. Judging by what happened in the last Fide world title dispute encounter, when white wasn`t able to get the tiniest opening advantage (in at least nine out of the ten games) and the outcome was only decided by Magnus Carlsen`s ability to outplay Anand in the middle game and (especially) in rook endings, this book seems to be (cunningly) in the right direction.

¹ See an alternative suggestion that seems to fit well with the the rest of the repertoire in my commentary to this review.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nice repertoire book 17. Oktober 2013
Von hennie286 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This repertoire is well written, but I like the suggestions of Watson "A strategic repertoire for white" more because it is more ambitious. For more carefull people this is a very good repertoire. Against queens gambit declined Bf4. Versus the kings indian and Grunfeld the fianchetto. The suggestion of an anti-benoni with Nc3 instead of c4 is nice but Burgess choice is a little unambitieus when I check it with fritz and also not so difficult to play against I think.

The advantage of this book is that it avoids the Boedapest, Benko, Benoni, Chigorin and Albin by using d4 and then Nf3 (and no 2 c4). But because I like to play against these openings it is no advantage for me.

Maybe I will check it in more details later but for now I will use the book of Watson: d4 and then c4.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A good core for a an opening repertoire. 22. März 2015
Von Broadmeadow - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A good core for a an opening repertoire. This isn't the be all and end all of opening repertoire books but I don't think the author believes it is. What it does is provides a coherent set of opening variations which cut out a lot of side lines like the Chigorin and Albin's counter gambit while not succumbing to the "system" syndrome. The author is an expert in the Torre but doesn't recommend it for every situation. Too many books will pick something like the Colle, London or Torre and make it a one size fits all solution. Here the author uses it as a very good way to sidestep the Nimz/Bogo/Queen's Indian complex. That happens to be a place where the Torre is a strong opening and fits hand and glove. But the book also goes for the QGD and Slav/Semi-Slav. In other words, it permits play to enter classical lines while short circuiting the more theory laden hypermodern openings.

I like this book so much that I'm buying the paper version as well as the Kindle version.

One thing I'd have recommended the author do differently is avoid the Slav/Semi-Slav recommendations and go for an Exchange Slav. That's for a few reasons. First, it is easy to find good moves for White in the Exchange Slav. They suggest themselves naturally. Second, Black is usually going to be demoralized by seeing the Exchange Slav. It isn't what a Slav player usually wants to play. Third, it greatly reduces the cognitive load.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't get move ordered! 15. April 2014
Von Matthew W. Baker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
With the explosion of chess opening knowledge aided by computer analysis and internet chat rooms, there are no opening secrets anymore. There are many players who specialize in what used to be fairly obscure lines as Black, and it is difficult to maintain a decent level of preparation against them all, The challenge is to have a fairly comprehensive repertoire that doesn't have multiple gaps due to move order variations and overlooked lines. Having used many different repertoire books over the years, I think I can say that it is not an easy thing to do. This book is a very good attempt for the intermediate and advanced player who wants a steady but interesting comprehensive repertoire starting with 1.d4. The kindle edition makes it possible to easily reference and learn these lines, which attempt to beat Black at his own game by changing the approach for each defense, but in a manageable way. Enjoying the book so far, and I think the recommended lines will help conquer the opening jungle.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good serious Opening repertoire 4. November 2013
Von Mario Psaila - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I just wish this book came out a couple of years ago when I was (re)building my repertoire around The Torre and QGD with Nf3. I can therefore appreciate the efforts of the author having come (almost) to the same conclusions myself. An aspiring chess player can use this repertoire to good effect or. like me, pick and choose the most suitable for one's playing style. Personally I don't like the g3 systems against the Indians but that is just my style - it could suit anybody else. But this is the strong point of the book - the rest of the repertoire is not diminished by my choice of not using part of it.
