Item description for Secrets of Opening Surprises - Volume 6 by Jeroen Bosch, Ian Rogers, Erwin L'Ami & John Donaldson...

SOS allows you to play the chess opening like a pro without spending nearly all your free time trying to memorize stuffy theory. An unprepared opponent will have great difficulties dealing with these cunning, ready-to-go early deviations from main stream openings (usually before move six). The ideas may look weird at first sight but have proven to be perfectly playable: they have all been played by Masters or Grandmasters.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Secrets of Opening Surprises - Volume 6?

Disappoiningly little new analysis  Jan 27, 2009
I bought this for the section on the Dory Defence, 1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 Ne4. This volume offers little more than I had already found through searching; case in point: the game Keres-Podhorzer is referenced in a footnote to the 3rd move of the first featured game, and continued 3. Nbd2 d5 and after 4. Nxe4 dxe4 5. Ng5 f5 Black got a bad game. All well and good, but Keres also had Black in the same position in the same tournament against the same player and likewise play went 3. Ndb2 d5, potentially allowing the very same line above. Rather than offer any original analysis as to what Keres might have intended as Black, too much material is spent on irrelevant anecdotes and minutiae regarding the thematic tournament in Vienna featuring this defence. So this book offers no value to me, since I have already independently discerned that what Keres probably had in mind in the above line instead of 5...f5 was 5...Qd5
