This masterful work is short, yet concise and to the point, guiding the 1. e4 player in handling and management of all of Black's classic opening responses.
1. ...Nf6 -Alekhine’s
1. .....e6 -French
1. .....d6 -Pirc
1. .....d5 -Scandinavian
1. .....c6 -Caro Kann
1. .....c5 -Sicilian
1. ...Nc6 -Nimzowitsch

These lines have been studied and developed over many years by the venerable Chess Master and teacher Jude Acers, they are the essential and recommended lines for all play that commences 1.e4, but are especially effective for the new “limited” time controls in present and future tournament play.
All levels, whether they be the first or second side of the board will discover fresh arsenals for both attack and defense. As White, once you embrace (and you will) these “to the point” openings, this book will take you via clear reference to the sources of future study. As Black, you must be prepared. The reader will not be overwhelmed by masses of theory or endless analytical variations, but shall discover how and where to find such material.

• A clear opening guide for the newer player

• A no nonsense opening system for the more advanced player.

• New concepts for the Upper Echelon of chess to meet the coming evolution of “Knockout”and “less time” in serious tournament play.

• STAY ON TOP, become a world super star in
the global phenomena of mass appeal.
