    About the Publisher: Gambit Publications is passionate about creating innovative and instructive chess books, suitable for all standards of player.

Our books for beginners and club-level players use effective training techniques to make improving easy and fun.

    The first moves of a chess game define the nature of the whole struggle, as both players stake their claim to the critical squares and start to develop their plans. It is essential to play purposefully and to avoid falling into traps or reaching a position that you dont understand. Paul van der Sterren offers a wealth of ideas and explanation, together with the basic variations of each and every opening. This knowledge will equip players to succeed in the opening up to good club level, and provide a superb grounding in opening play on which to build a more sophisticated repertoire. The strategies he explains will, unlike ever-changing chess opening theory, remain valid as long as chess is played, and so the time spent studying this book will be rewarded many times over.Comparative Titles: Understanding the Chess Openings (Collins), ISBN 978-1-904600-28-2 Mastering the Chess Openings volume 3 (Watson), ISBN 978-1-904600-98-5 About the Author:Grandmaster Paul van der Sterren has won the Dutch Championship on two occasions, and in 1993 reached the Candidates stage of the World Chess Championship.
