Using fresh, clear presentation, the key ideas of the openings are explained in an entertaining and accessible way. The aim of this series is to provide the essential knowledge to play the opening, while at the same time revealing the current thinking of the World's elite players. For example, `First Moves' leads readers through the basic opening moves. `Heroes & Zeroes' gives the best and worst performances with the opening and features some of the leading exponents of the Benko Gambit. `Tricks & Traps' reveals how you might catch out your opponent. `What's Hot' pinpoints the very latest ideas from the world's elite.

As such it has proved a deadly weapon in the hands of Adams and Grischuk - and even Kasparov himself. In this book you will find full coverage of both 2...d6 3.Bb5+ and 2...Nc6 3.Bb5. You will be shown how to implement in your own games the ideas and attacking systems that have worked so successfully at the highest level.
