Item description for Chess Explained: The English Opening by Zenon Franco & Manuel Perez Carballo...

Chess Explained is a new series of books about chess openings. They are not theoretical works in the traditional sense, but more a series of lessons from a chess expert with extensive over-the-board experience with an opening. You will gain an understanding of the opening and the middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. It is as if you were sitting at the board with a chess coach answering your questions about the plans for both sides, the ideas behind particular moves, and what specific knowledge you need to have. The English Opening is a flexible and dynamic choice for White, which avoids a great deal of sharp and well-mapped opening theory. It is popular with all levels of chess-players, and has been used to good effect at world championship level by Kasparov, Korchnoi, Botvinnik and other greats of the game. The English gives rise to an immense variety of structures, ranging from reversed Sicilians to Hedgehogs and fluid or locked central structures. It is an opening where strategic mastery of typical positions is of immense benefit, and where Black needs to combine circumspection and vigor to obtain a viable game.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chess Explained: The English Opening?

Very good book on 3 variations of the English Opening  Dec 24, 2006
This book has 25 anotated games where it goes over 3 main variations of the English. One is the Symmetrical English where the author goes over the Hedgehog, Double Fianchetto Defense and Rubenstein System. The second part of the book goes over Reversed Sicilian Positions you can get from the English Opening. The third and final section goes over English vs Nimzo Indian Defense systems.

All the games were from 2003 on so alot of new theory and ideas. I really liked the part with the Nimzo vs English since I have not seen too many modern books on that subject. The only thing I did not like is this book comes from England and takes FOREVER to get delivered. I had to wait months for my copy. But well worth it if you are and English Opening Fan.
