    200 Open Games
    Catalog Code: B0345IS

    200 Open Games centers around the popular 1. P-K4 P-K4 opening (Bobby Fischer, for one, consistently chooses the king's pawn opening). "The author's idea," writes Bronstein, "is to show that quite a large number of similar games are in fact different in the way they have been created in the minds of the players. And although they are different, all these games, with their identical first move, still retain for a considerable time traces of one and the same inherited pattern. ..."

    The Elshad for White
    Catalog Code: B0147EU

    In The Elshad System for White, FM Igor Nemtsev surveys Black's most common responses to this creative opening, including the King's Indian, Dutch, and big-center setups. Conventional approaches are hazardous for Black: unexpected tactics abound, and White is not afraid to sacrifice material for a sudden attack. Not even grandmasters tread safely in the Elshad minefield.

    The Hippopotamus Defence
    A Deceptively Dangerous Universal Chess Opening System for Black
    Catalog Code: B0216NIC

    The Hippopotamus Defence is just what a club player needs. It’s a straightforward and clear-cut chess opening that avoids the ever growing body of mainline theory. It’s universal: Black can use the Hippo against virtually all of White’s choices (1.e4, 1.d4, 1.c4, 1.f4, the Colle, London, Trompowsky, Réti and others). It’s not very well known and will surprise many opponents.
