How to Play Against 1d4 and 1e4 - Richard Palliser & Neil McDonald
Combining How to Play Against 1.d4 and How to Play Against 1.e4 in a single volume.
How to Play Against 1.d4
Finding a suitable defence to 1 d4 isn't an easy task, especially if you don't have endless time available to study all the latest theoretical developments. If you choose fashionable openings, it's imperative to keep pace with modern theory if you want to succeed with Black.
Renowned opening expert Richard Palliser advocates the Czech Benoni, an uncomplicated, low-maintenance but effective opening in which the importance f understanding ideas and tactics far outweighs the necessity to memorize move sequences.
Richard Palliser is an International Master and a former British Rapidplay Champion.
How to Play Against 1.e4
This book provides a solution to playing against 1.e4. Neil McDonald advocates the very popular French Defence, but chooses a repertoire for Black that requires only the minimum amount of move memorization. The lines he selects are very easy to learn and play, but there also something here for more experienced players, as McDonald goes on to offer a second repertoire based on counterattacking lines against 3.Nc3 and 3.Nd2
