The English opening, 1 c4, has become increasingly popular over the last few years and is included in the repertoire of most leading Grandmasters. For the average player requiring a sound, reliable system for club and tournament play, the English opening is thought to be an ideal choice, leading to elastic positions and interesting middle games. Here, the author concentrates on explaining the basic strategies for both sides, basing the material on key illustrative games to allow the reader to get a feel for the correct set-up of pieces and moves. The author has been a regular practitioner of the English opening for many years, and has obtained his final International Master norm. He has also written "English: Four Knights".
