Looking for a new opening?The Veresov could be the one for you! It is a surprisingly tricky system that, in the right hands, can be forged into a powerful attacking weapon. White forgoes the normal queen's pawn opening ideas in favour of speedy development of the queenside pieces. On advantage of this underrated line is that players with the black pieces are less likely to be familiar with all the subtleties here than in a more mainstream opening.In this book, Grandmaster Nigel Davies arms the reader with a complete repertoire with white pieces, with the Veresov being the central line. Davies delves into the secrets of the opening, explaining tactical and positional ideas, and highlighting the main plans for both sides.
