3.0 étoiles sur 5 Intéressant et riche, mais incomplet ! 31 octobre 2013
Achat vérifié
Avec beaucoup de confiance en lui, l'auteur nous propose un voyage dans les système noirs avec fianchetto roi. Mais attention ! Seules les positions sans mouvement du pion c sont proposées ... Autrement dit, pas d'Est Indienne, de Bénoni ou autre modernes avec d4-c4 chez les blancs ... Il faudra attendre le Tome 2 pour cela ! Par contre, une intéressante approche du dragon accéléré est donnée ! Un bon livre, si vous aimez ces systèmes pour les noirs !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of: Crushing White: The SNIPER! 21 février 2012
Par Yesnitcounts - Publié sur Amazon.com
After some years of chess abstinence, this FIDE Master needs all the help he can get in updating his openings so he doesn't get "caught out" in the latest theory. What Grandmaster Henley does here is continue to weave the net of dynamic Black counter-play based on systems with 1...g6, 2...Bg7 and 3...c5. This first volume focues on White setups involving an early 1.e4 2.d4 or vice versa. This is exactly the type of cohesiveness my openings (especially as Black) lacked in my youth.

As advertised in the title "Crushing White" this book does admittedly have a bias towards achieving results with the Black pieces. Apparently his objective is to show that Black can play strategically sound chess, yet win games in dynamic style. The combination of 64 "Illustrative Games" have plenty of diagrams (over 800) and the "Game Recaps" to really allow you to focus on the key moments.

Worthy of being a pamphlet in it's own right, the "Sniper Manual" provides 30 pages of weapons used by Black players such as - Sniper Investment, Bishop Exchange, Bishop Relocation, Exchange sacrifices, and every piece sacrifice including several stunning Queen sacrifices! In addition, I think he really touches the heart of the typical Sniper middlegame play by showing and guiding us to examples of pawn play - d5 pawn break, e5 pawn break, the e5/d5 pawn duo etc and of course passed pawns.

I highly recommend this book for anyone serious about improving their play. With the combination of the Sniper Weapons Manual and the 64 Illustrative Games,
I think any chess player from USCF 1500 up will significantly improve their understanding of how to win chess games as Black with dynamic counterplay!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Better than I expected !!! 18 février 2012
Par Ronnie Lemieux - Publié sur Amazon.com
Due to the obligations and responsibilities of full time employment, and family life, it is very difficult for me to find time to keep up with "chess opening theory". However, I love to play chess and am very competitive in everything I do - especially when playing 5 minute or 3 minute chess on the internet.

I tink I may have really found the Holy Grail for my black openings with Grandmaster Henley's - "SNIPER! By building a whole black opening system around the kingside fianchetto, I feel I have a sound position no matter what setup White employs. Henley does a great job of dispelling the myth that only White is allowed to control the opening and win beautiful chess games.

While you do need to learn a few very simple, but important, variations (In the Theory Sections he guides you on which ones to focus on), the main attraction for me was the fact that by learning the "Sniper Manual" I have developed techniques that will - as he calls it - give me "An opening I can play for a lifetime" I am always in familiar territory and the themes are constantly recurring. I feel I'm getting an unfair competitive advantage in blitz games.

From a technical production point of view, I quite like the ease of reading with the figurine notation, highlighted main lines and plenty of diagrams. My only quibble might be from a editing technical point of view as the columns in the table of contents on the left margin are slightly off and there is no index in the back.

However, with 396 pages of top notch content I am willing to accept the trade-off as being well within my favor. In terms of market value, the only other Sniper book I am aware of (Everyman Press) is from 2010 and only 176 pages and more expensive.

I would highly recommend this book for any chess player from Class B (About 1600 USCF) upwards to master level. I can honestly say I'm a skeptic when it comes to most chess books. I've bought more paper weights than truly useful tomes and can say without reservation that this was much better than I expected.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 TYPICAL MODERN CHESS BOOK "BS"!! 28 mars 2013
Par Walter Downs Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This monolithic chess endeavor consisting of 2 books and rafts of offered DVD's on the Sniper is a perfect example of the bull---- chess houses have been putting out of late. Note that about 3/4 of the way through the Sniper book, there is a line for white that completely blows the Sniper out of the water! (1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 c5 4.cxd5 Qa5+ 5.c3 Qxc5 6.Na3!). The "best" black has is to go in to a *very* dubious endgame where it is not clear if Black can *ever* equalize with proper play from white. So, all the rest of 300+ pages, and all the DVD's could actually be presented as a paragraph-long summation of why the Sniper doesn't work... SO, don't waste your hard-earned money on all this drivel that is meant simply to separate as much money from you and your wallet as possible....

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Crushing White: A Very SERIOUS Repetoire Series Book(s) 22 mars 2012
Par Jerome Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
Hey readers,
This book is NO JOKE awesome! Author Ron Henley's series is a road map for learning/using this defense. The book's instruction is CLEAR, WELL ORGANIZED, and written to TEACH! The book is published by TPT Press and the quality is much better than expected. This manual is THICK, and the binding allows it to lay open no problems, for EASY STUDY/play with a mini-board. The author spends the first 70 pages on logistics of this defense: key pieces/piece manuvers, pawn structures/play, various OTHER DEFENSES which arise through transposition, all with detailed instruction and diagrams. The other 326 pages give variations and illustrated example games (old/modern) showing "The Sniper" in action. EACH game is summurized at the end to highlight key points.

All in all, who should buy this book/is it worth the sale price? ANYONE who desires to learn a defensive repetoire valuable for ALL(?) openings White may play, this book is worth the time and money if you are rated below master level. C'mon, let's face it, whae do Ms/GMs use to build their opening arsenal? I truly don't believe there is a particular WRITTEN work available for them, EXCEPT maybe the GM Repetoire series from Quality Press. Or maybe THIS book will aid them too!?! For any of us not in GM status, this book IS DEFINITELY worth its weight in gold....Looking forward to "Crushing White: The Sniper (VOL II)!

I was looking for a new Black opening system a bit off the beaten track so I bit on GM Henley's Sniper. He seems like a nice enough guy from some of his videos on Youtube. I knew there was a volume 2 in the works. I could see from the "Look Inside" feature that the format wasn't the clearest. I had already done some work on the Accelerated Dragon, but was annoyed by all the anti-Sicilians people throw at you these days. (Karma, I guess, as I have played the Closed Sicilian for a long time.) The Sniper looked like a good way to get around some of those lines. The book has a lot of sales pitch in the first few pages and a very long and hard to follow table of contents. Turns out the table of contents substitutes (poorly) for an index of variations. At the end of the Introduction there is the very revealing "How to Use this book" section, where the author states, "I advise taking the variations you want to employ and store them as games in Chessbase, or other chess Software. As you play new games, win or lose, you should annotate them and store them to build your own personal opening repertoire." I don't mind doing some work checking evaluations and variations with Houdini, but isn't it the author's job to provide a repertoire in an opening manual? It is very difficult to think, "Hey, what does Ron recommend against such and such line?" and then look it up in the book. Also, as one reviewer has noted, some critical lines are given, but are well hidden in the body of the work, which is mostly illustrative games between nontitled players.

By it's very nature the kingside fianchetto can transpose to a lot of openings. Doesn't the fact that the author needs 3 volumes to cover the opening belie the claim of "easy to learn?" It's certainly not easy to say what's covered in each volume without an index of variations. Volume 1 examines transposition to Accelerated Dragon Sicilian (1e4 g6 2 d4 Bg7 3 Nf3 c5 4 Nc3 or 4 c4), the dubious Pterodactyl for Black 4 Nc3 Qa5, and looks at the, critical for White, 4 dc. I would recommend picking up Chess Openings for Black, Explained: A Complete Repertoire (Revised and Updated) for more complete coverage of the Accelerated Dragon, which seemed rather skimpy in CW:TS. OK, I'm a sucker, I admit I shelled out another $22 for volume 2 (wherein we learn there is a third volume in the works.) See my next review there.
