"To build the opening repertoire for black is a complex task. Usually it is tedious and time-consuming process. We will achieve this purpose in an easier way through a close examination of Black openings played by Anatoly Karpov, the 12th World Champion.
Karpov came to his present Black repertoire not at once. At first he played the Ruy Lopez and the Sicilian Defence after 1.e4, the Queen's gambit after 1.d4 and the symmetrical 1...c5 in the
English Opening. Then he began to play so called solid openings: the Caro-Kann, Nimzo-Indian, Queen's Indian Defences and the Catalan Opening. Having studies them thoroughly, he achieved excellent results".
