The Complete Albin Counter-Gambit by Luc Henris
A Dangerous Weapon against the Queens Gambit
Paperback, 616 pages
Written by Belgian FIDE master Luc Harris, this book contains a comprehensive presentation of the present-day theory of the Albin Counter-Gambit. This opening is experiencing a remarkable renaissance lately, notably through the efforts of elite Grandmaster Alexander Morozevich.
The author has thoroughly re-analysed many positions and reveals the ideas behind this pet lines in the gambit. He presents instructive material from games played in recent years, mostly master and grandmaster level. The depth of the author's work is revealed in the large number of comments, evaluations, new ideas, original analyses or full-fledged annotations provided. An astounding accomplishment.
Detailed theoretical texts introduce each chapter, and the author points out refutations of Black's play that haven't appeared in any other work on the subject.
Undoubtedly the most important work ever written on the Albin Counter-Gambit, this is an essential text for anyone playing the opening as Black and all those concerned about being up-to-date with the latest theory.
