A classic book by the Australian who won the first World Correspondence Championship. Just one copy left in stock! This book is based on Purdys belief that he could teach chess players in 10 hours what they needed to know to get to a solid middlegame after the opening. This would free him to study middlegame tactics and endgames where the average players time is better spent. At about 1900, one would begin to study openings again. Thinkers Press updated Purdys magazine articles with some modern commentary by National Master Wieck. They adjusted the 10 hours to 24 hours for inflation created Action Chess : Purdy's 24 hour opening repertoire. The book recommends the Colle System for White 1 d4 followed ny Nf3, e3, Bd3 against most things and is nowadays played even by Magnus Carlsen. The book is mainly focused from the black side and from the practical side of playing solid chess without a ton of study. He presents the Tartakover Defense against D4 calling it the All Purpose system. It's played against everything except e4, the Stonewall and the Colle. D58 Queen's Gambit Declined, Tartakower (MakagonovBondarevsky) Syst (D58). He recommends the French against E4 with the immediate 3... dxe4 . (This avoids a lot of e4 e5 theory) There is also a chapter with the Sicilian Dragon and from the White side a chapter on the Colle. A book for the improving player who wants an easy to learn opening repertoire. Softback, 192 pages. Dimensions 14.6 x 1.3 x 22.2 cm, 275g.
