This manual fills a big gap in chess literature. After 1.d4, probably the most widely played opening move in the world, Black can avoid main line theory by deviating into a whole variety of irritating unorthodox sidelines. White players often stumble into unknown and dangerous territory where their tricky opponent awaits them, fully prepared.Acclaimed chess author Valeri Bronznik provides sound and user-friendly answers to no less then nineteen unusual variations and gambits. Against the Budapest Gambit, Marshall Defence, Englund Gambit, Baltic Defence, Schara-Hennig Gambit, Keres Defence and many others, chess amateurs are presented with easy-to-learn plans and comprehensive counter-attacks.After studying this book, club and internet chess players will be fully armed to deal with all of Black's offbeat tries. From now on they will be able to beat the guerrillas!

An honest and convincing work that is heartily recommended. White players will learn how to throw a spanner in the works when Black chooses unorthodox line after 1.d4.
--German Federation for Correspondence Chess
A very practical way to learn how to meet lesser seen defenses.
--IM John Donaldson, jeremysilman.com
Although concrete variations are the main thing, Bronznik gives a lot more strategic explanations than Avrukh and Khalifman in their repertoire books.
Bronznik provides a good deal of analysis and verbal explanation, and each chapter finishes with a summary of the findings.
--Joe Petrolito, Australasian Chess Magazine
I consider Valeri Bronznik's books of exceptional quality.
