1.d4 - Beat the Guerrillas!  A Powerful Repertoire Against Annoying Black Sidelines
WARNING: May Contain Small Parts.


After 1.d4, probably the most popular opening move in the world, Black can choose to employ a wide variety of unorthodox lines. Taken by surprise, White players may stumble into unknown and treacherous territory, where their fully-prepared opponent is waiting in ambush.

1.d4 – Beat the Guerrillas! provides effective recipes against a broad range of unusual variations, including the:

  • Englund Gambit
  • Budapest Gambit
  • Schara-Hennig Gambit
  • English Defense
  • Baltic Defense
  • Keres Defense
  • Marshall Defense
  • Owen Defense
  • Albin’s Counter Gambit
  • and many others

International Master and acclaimed chess author Valeri Bronznik provides systematic overviews, well-chosen examples of practical play, and conclusions with key strategic and tactical advice. In the process he also manages to present many new ideas and theoretical improvements.

This highly useful and practical guide will teach you how to deal with all of Black’s offbeat tries against 1.d4. Don’t get ambushed in the opening – beat the guerrillas!
