Opening Repertoire: Strategic Play with 1e4

In this book the highly experienced grandmaster Milos Pavlovic outlines a combative, strategic repertoire for White based on 1 e4. The lines suggested are very much based on positional themes where an understanding of plans and strategic concepts is far more important than rote memorisation of lines and move orders. The focus is on important positional considerations such as:

  • How to make the pieces work most effectively with a given pawn structure.
  • How to identify weak spots in the opponent’s position and plan to exploit them.
  • How to find good methods to limit the opponent’s counterplay.

Many players try to gain the advantage in chess by learning sharp lines in the opening and catching out their opponents. However, it is increasingly difficult to do this and a more effective approach is often to obtain positions where your understanding is more advanced than that of your opponent so you can consistently outplay them.

In Opening Repertoire: Strategic Play with 1 e4, Milos Pavlovic guides the reader through the chosen variations and carves out a complete repertoire for White. He examines all aspects of play and provides the reader with well-researched, fresh, and innovative analysis. Each annotated game has valuable lessons on the opening and contains instructive commentary on typical middlegame plans. The question and answer approach provides an excellent study method.
