Play the CatalanWe have just received from London: Play the Catalan. The Catalan is, as you know, a sophisticated opening which is popular at all levels of chess. It is an excellent choice for players who are keen to improve their overall understanding of the game. Vladimir Kramnik has revitalized it with many new ideas, and has used it with great success against the world's strongest players - on occasion making it look like a forced win for White. GM Nigel Davies has now written a major study, which is quite accessible. He provides a reliable and dynamic repertoire for White, covers the plans for both sides and shows the importance of move orders. Davies recommends specific ways to play, and will give you a decent understanding of the Catalan. Please have a look at this important new book (only € 19.95) here.
