The end of an odyssey! Former US Chess Champion Sam Shankland completes his 1.d4 masterpiece
Lifetime Repertoires: 1.d4 by GM Sam Shankland not only shows you the right moves to play, but in its three parts it also teaches you a top player’s club-friendly and time-saving approach to winning with 1.d4. Altogether, it is as comprehensive as it gets.
Aggressive. Strategic. User-Friendly.
A repertoire built to last a lifetime, from a bonafide expert in the opening.
United States Chess Champion shows how to take the game under your control and shut down Black’s annoying sidelines after 1.d4
In chess you cannot take your move back, but you can always return a misplaced piece to its former square at the cost of some time. Pawns, on the other hand, can never move backwards, making pawn moves truly permanent decisions.
This irreversibility makes Pawn Play among the most difficult aspects of chess strategy, which is one reason few books have been written about this topic – and some that have are almost incomprehensible.
The bullet-proof Semi-Slav: a complete answer to 1.d4
“My goal is to give you an opening that you can play forever. The Semi-Slav is, in my opinion, the best opening available against 1.d4.” – GM Sam Shankland
