About this title


The Classical Dutch is a flexible opening that often gives Black dynamic attacking chances. In this book, one of its most enthusiastic adherents explains the workings of his favorite opening, and provides Black with a complete repertoire against 1 d4.

Few opponents will be ready to take on the Classical Dutch, since it has received little attention in chess literature in recent decades. For an opening that has been played by all-time greats such as Korchnoi, Tal and Larsen, the Classical Dutch's current lack of popularity is puzzling. In this book, Simon Williams shows how Black can obtain counterchances against each of White's main options. He also provides recommendations against all of White's alternative approaches against the Dutch, including a variety of sharp possibilities after 1 d4 f5.

About the Author:

Simon Williams is a young international master from England who has gained a reputation for playing daring attacking chess. He has represented England in World and European Championships in various age groups, and has been a regular in the British Championships since his early teens.
