1.b4From our friends at Russell Enterprises we have just received 1.b4: Theory & Practice of the Sokolsky Opening.

Some find it weird and wacky, others call it safe and sound. Actually the Sokolsky Opening is both. Sometimes the play is truly deviant, other times 1.b4 is a roundabout route to a different opening.

This book, packed with fresh analysis and 95 illustrative games, many of them by world class players, clearly shows that White can look forward to a rewarding albeit complex or unusual struggle.

The Sokolsky, also known as the Orangutan or the Polish Attack, is a real player's opening, proved sound in practice. A very good choice to get your opponents thinking from move one!

So don't hesitate - push the b-pawn!
