FCO: Fundamental Chess Openings - Paul van der Sterren



FCO: Fundamental Chess Openings by Paul van der Sterren
A new one-volume guide to all the chess openings

Paperback, 448 pages

This is not a book that provides masses of variations to memorize. Paul van der Sterren instead offers a wealth of ideas and explanation, together with the basic variations of each and every opening. This knowledge will equip players to succeed in the opening up to good club level, and provide a superb grounding in opening play on which to build a more sophisticated repertoire. The strategies he explains will, unlike ever-changing chess opening theory, remain valid as long as chess is played, and so the time spent studying this book will be rewarded many times over.

The perfect survival guide to the chess openings All openings covered Detailed verbal explanations of plans for both sides Up-to-date and featuring many tips and recommendations Insights into the character of each opening Written by one of the worlds foremost opening experts

Grandmaster Paul van der Sterren has won the Dutch Championship on two occasions, and in 1993 reached the Candidates stage of the World Chess Championship. He is an internationally renowned chess writer and editor: he was one of the founding editors of New in Chess, for whose Yearbooks he has contributed more than 150 opening surveys.
