SOS -- Secrets of Opening Surprises, Volume 7 has just arrived from the printers. You know what that means: with just a minor investment of time, you will be able to shock your opponents with very early deviations from the regular lines in main stream openings. But it also means danger! Because in the next few weeks thousands of chess players all over the world will be eagerly hunting the pages of this book. They, too, like easy play, an advantage on the clock, and an opponent out of his depth. There are some really astonishing moves: 1. ... Nh6 against the Bird, 3.d5 against the Gruenfeld, and 3. ... Be6 against the QCA, to name just a few. And what about Hikaru Nakamura himself on his famous 2. Qh5? IM John Watson called SOS: "The most entertaining of books about openings that I know of." And Watson added: "I recommend SOS because it is so much fun, to be sure, but also because of its practical utility." So my advice to you is: order your copy of SOS 7 today, and watch the face of your opponent when you spring an SOS on him, later this month. Remember: ignoring SOS can cost you dearly.
