Paperback, 368 pages, 2019 New in Chess Publishing.
After the success of his award-winning book Keep it Simple 1.e4, Christof Sielecki is back. His new repertoire based on 1.d4 has a similar profile as his previous book: variations that are straightforward and easy to remember, and require little or no maintenance. The major objective is to dominate Black from the opening, by simple means: no need to sacrifice anything or memorize long tactical lines.
This new 1.d4 repertoire may be even easier to master than Sielecki’s 1.e4 recommendations, because it is an even more coherent system. Sielecki always clearly explains the plans and counterplans and keeps you focussed on what the position requires.
Ambitious post-beginners will get great value out of studying this extremely accessible book.
