Certes l'ouvrage est beau et sérieux mais je dois avouer que je m'attendais à un peu plus de profondeur et surtout, à la possibilité de faire un choix de répertoire en fonction de l'adéquation caractère des ouvertures/style de jeu personnel. Pour le coup, ce livre n'est pas à suffisant dans cette optique. Un bon recueil de référence rapide mais à réserver à ceux qui veulent juste survoler les débuts.

REMARQUABLE.Je recommande fermement cet ouvrage à tous les joueurs d'ECHECS : qu'ils soient amateurs ou professionnels:-)
Un grand souhait ici: que toutes les
Encyclopédies comportent désormais plus d'explications: ces ouvrages ne doivent pas devenir de simples aide-mémoires!
Bravo à l'auteur:)

HASH(0x8d79f6b4) étoiles sur 5 Outstanding 22 novembre 2009
Par Goosemeyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Without a doubt this is the best opening book to start with, and possibly the only one you might need for quite a while. Oh how I wish this had been available when I started out. What's the first thing a beginner does (ignoring all advice)? He starts surveying all the openings to find a few that he likes (and then changes his mind repeatedly). Before this book that involved buying a book on each opening, at great expense, both of money and time. That's no longer necessary - you can buy this one and get all you need for that purpose. It does expect some experience, but no more than any opening book does.

The book reminds me alot of Watson's Mastering the Chess Openings, except that it's much broader and less deep. It's far less selective and sophisticated than Watson, but it's not superficial at all given the target audience. It gives very good explanations of the general themes, historical development, and early move orders of pretty much every opening you could want, although it does have a strong focus on mainlines. For a beginner or intermediate, this book will give you enough theory to get started - your first half dozen moves with some deviations - but not enough to distract you from tactics and endgames. Coaches should love it. I'm sure they would tell you it's all you need until you are an expert.

The book is targeted at non-Masters. It's perfect for beginners to intermediates - I would say this is an essential book for beginner to Class C. Higher class players would still get a lot of value as a reference for unfamiliar openings they encounter and for broadening their repertoires, but I suspect an Expert would get diminished value from it. It has 450 some pages of large page size and has a huge amount of prose for each bit of analysis.

I bought this expecting to be disappointed by superficiality, but I was wrong. After the fact, it's hard to imagine this book hasn't existed until now. Thank you Grandmaster van der Sterren. Thank you Gambit.

Update: I find myself immersed in this thing all the time - it's addictive. I defy anybody in the target audience to read about their favorite opening and not learn something.

HASH(0x8d54e810) étoiles sur 5 A modern version of "The ideas behind the chess openings" 30 novembre 2009
Par Chess amateur - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is a miracle. It's fills a gap between more simple opening encyclopedia like Seirawan's "Winning chess openings", Collins "Understanding the chess openings" and specific opening books. This book is in fact a modern and a more advanced version of Ruben Fines "The ideas behind the chess openings". And lower rated chess players (below 1800) should understand the chess opening plans, rather than memorizing openings.

Many chess players (improvers and club players) have bought a book on a given opening, for later find that opening not suitable for them, a waste of money. So in the beginning of your chess career, you should instead buy only one book.

This book!

As an example, this book will probably give you the same introduction and plans in the Sicilian opening, as Emms "Starting Out-The Sicilian", "Fundamental chess openings" contains almost 60 pages with plans and information about the Sicilian opening. That's more than enough for player rated below 1800.
Strongly recommended!

HASH(0x8d1ceb70) étoiles sur 5 Say goodbye to shelves of chess books 2 décembre 2009
Par revbd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is outstanding in every way (apart from the awful 'FCO' title) and provides substantial coverage of ALL chess openings. It addresses both understanding and specific moves and gives lots of unusually well written explanation. In addition it is, I think, superior to comparable alternatives. For example: Watson is far less comprehensive (despite 4 vols), has big gaps e.g. Petroff, and his coverage is both uneven and less practical; Djuric et al is far less deep (despite 4 vols); Collins, though good and comprehensive, is considerably shorter and less focused on understanding; Kallai, though good, is focused primarily on moves; Fine is hopelessly out of date and, in addition, not good. Sterren's opening book is a marvel which makes shelves of my introductory opening titles redundant.

HASH(0x8d7798f4) étoiles sur 5 Great for general knowledge and main lines 25 juin 2010
Par John - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've had this book for a few months now, and I have to say that Van Der Sterren does a great job covering the most common openings, their goals, and the subtleties of each move. In particular, his coverage of the Scotch Game and the Ruy Lopez made me a believer in 1. e4 e5 openings!

Unfortunately, though, as a lower rated player (1400 USCF), I find that opponents either 1) go out of book very quickly or 2) play side lines in the openings that are highly tactical. For example, I've faced the Scandinavian defense countless times since I started playing tournament chess, yet it only gets about 2-3 pages of coverage here. Van Der Sterren insists that the Scandinavian defense doesn't deserve the treatment that the "more developed" openings get, despite the fact that several lines have been popularized recently. The same goes for Alekhine's defense, where the author writes that (what I know to be) the Modern variation is considered the main line, and only briefly covers the Exchange variation, which I find to be much more common.

It's hard to complain too much, though, considering one of the author's main goals was to give general knowledge of each opening. This book accomplishes that well, but be prepared to look beyond this book for more detailed information on sidelines and less-common openings.

HASH(0x8d44f030) étoiles sur 5 Perfect ... 2 août 2010
Par Bernard J. Demuth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I just need an understanding of the openings rather than pages and pages of variations. These Gambit books are a breath of fresh air in Chess books. And thanks to all the previous reviewers. You really helped me make a good decision.

[...] usually supply a "download .pdf" link so you can see sample pages. Its a shame they don't show the d4 and e4 chapters. Every night I have been reading those two chapters (around 3-4 pages each) and now I have a great picture in my head of the differences between the standard openings and the ideas behind them. I could never achieve this with other opening books.
