The semi-open game in action

Anatoly Karpov


The semi-open games, in which Black responds to 1 e4 with a move rather than 1… e5, are a combative group of openings. Black announces that he is going to try for more than simple equality, and the game frequently becomes an aggressive fight. In this second book of a
four-volume series, former World Champion Anatoly Karpov looks at recent developments in the Sicilian, Caro-Kann, French and Pirc-Ufimtsev (or Modern) Defences. Complete games from recent Grandmaster play are analysed in depth, so that the reader sees the logical connection of
the opening to the middlegame (and beyond).

This is an excellent book for players wishing to improve their understanding of the openings, as well as being a highly entertaining survey of major developments in recent Grandmaster practice.

Anatoly Karpov was World Champion from 1975 to 1985, during which time he dominated the chess world; becoming the most successful player in tournament history. His recent epic struggles with Gary Kasparov have proved that he is the only player in the world capable of successfully
challenging Kasparov for the World Championship.
