The Tarrasch is an ambitious defence to the Queen's Gambit. Black's concept is 1 d4 d5 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 and now 3 c5 an aggressive idea, he willingly accepts an isolated queen's pawn but in return seizes space in the centre and gains freedom of development for all his pieces. The author also looks at different White move orders and how Black should respond. The emphasis is on explanation rather than endless computer generated analysis. In this book, International Master and Tarrasch expert Sam Collins takes an in depth look at this popular opening and its many variations. Using illustrative games, Collins highlights the typical plans and tactics for both sides, presents repertoire options for Black and provides answers to all the key questions. Very comprehensive coverage on this system. Softback, 256 pages. Dimensions 170 x 240 x 13.97mm
