Outstanding, and written for the non-GM! 13 septembre 2012
Par John Hartmann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Here's the thing about opening books: most of them are completely unrealistic for non-GMs.

The majority of chess players can't devote hundreds of hours to memorizing the nuances of the new hot opening system. We can't keep up with the latest novelties from obscure Russian tournaments. If we can get a solid but rich position, we've done well.

This philosophy is where Watson's book begins. He promotes tactically sound and strategically rich openings for White, with 1.d4 / 2.c4 systems forming the basis of his repertoire. Included are a mix of mainline variations (Rubinstein Nimzo, Exchange QGD) as well as lesser-known paths. His analysis is thorough without being overwhelming, and it anticipates just about every logical response from Black.

To give you an example, I spent quite a bit of time going through the proposed lines (7.Qa4 / 7.Bg5) against the Grunfeld Defense. These are sub-lines in the massive Exchange Variation, but both moves - and 7.Bg5 in particular - lead to interesting positions where White has every chance to gain an advantage while also forcing Black to play on White's terms. I was really impressed with the depth and breadth of the analysis, and it was entirely comprehensible for a 1750 player like me.

You might not like every line that Watson offers in his repertoire, but you'll find that all the proposed choices are sound, logical, and well explained. All in all, this book is well worth your money.

An Excellent Comprehensive d4 Repertoire 11 août 2012
Par K. J. Case - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I think Watson has given us an excellent d4 repertoire that provides a balanced approach of both detailed analysis and explanatory prose. I especially liked the the way he developed systems for the King's Indian Defense, Grunfeld Defense, and Benoni systems that incorporate similar themes with some combination of the moves h3, Bg5 or Be3, while often delaying the development of the king knight to f3.

For the 1.d4 1.d5 repetoire against the Queen's Gambit Declined, Tarrasch Defense, Nimzo-Indian, Slav and Semi-Slav defenses, he has chosen the common theme 2.c4 and 3.Nc3. Again, he generally avoids an early Nf3 to limit black's options.

In another one of his works, Watson briefly discussed the move 4.Qc2 against the Benko Gambit. He has expanded on 4.Qc2 in this book. It seems like black must be careful not to get a bad position against this strategy.

If I ever decide to play tournament chess again, I would defintely use most of Watson's approach. The book made me wonder what he would play against d4!

A Strategic Reperoire as promised 3 août 2012
Par M. Ararat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
International Master John Watson delivers a well crafted repertoire for White based on d4-c4.
The foundation of this repertoire are solid lines for White that do not require sohisticated tactical wizardy. Instead, Watson elaborated on move orders and variations that keeps Black under pressure and White playing for a win without too much risk.

So, far in tournament play (U-2000) my opponent are baffled by the move order suggested by Watson and then I proceed to increase the pressure as my opponents play aimless...
The book has a good mix of variations and words. The author explain the main ideas behid his choices and cited relevant examples. This feature is very important if you want to study additional games on your own since Watson already made the selection for you.

Finally, the books has a reasonable size despite the completeness of the material. The book meets my standard for an opening repertoire: The variations are there to support the ideas and not to confuse(justify) the choice of an ify move or variation. I really enjoy the way that John Watson blends all his chess knowledge in this book. At my level around 1900 USCF the book is easy to understand and follow.

I Really like the Repertoire Watson Provides for White 22 avril 2013
Par Randy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've always had an interest in playing the QGD exchange variation, because it seemed like a fairly difficult opening to handle as black when I played 1...d5. Although this is only one chapter of the book, he seems fairly thorough in his analysis throughout, both in giving the more strategic moves he chooses for a line and some sidelines that can lead to more complicated play. He tends to stray away from more tactical lines that are unclear for white, since the book is strategic in nature, but he doesn't ignore some interesting choices for white if the reader wishes to investigate on their own. It doesn't lack for prose but its not overflowing with it either, so its kind of intimidating as you first pick and glance through the pages, but once you start it flows together nicely (Of course, there are more prose and advise for the main lines he suggests than the sidelines where he will more or less simply relay the moves).

I've made it though about four chapters, sometimes skipping around as some openings bother me more than others, but look forward to explore the rest. As some readers have noted, this isn't exactly the best book for beginners (I feel fairly comfortable with this book and I'm about 1900 USCF, but I feel any 1.d4 player a class below or above can also gain a great deal of understanding by going though this book). As the title suggests this is more of a strategic repertoire, so if you like fireworks and tactics it may not be an ideal match. Its more about exploiting imbalances in the position (ala minority attack with the QGD Exchange Var) and building small advantages. That isn't to say the lines are boring or drawish, they leave a great deal of fighting chess to be played and provides guidance on ways to minimize blacks chances of reaching equality in a given position.

The only real criticism is that it is rather dry. It doesn't cover actual games, usually just the lines and variants and subvariants that might be encountered and then leaves off at a certain point in the middlegame. This is all useful and keeping with the purpose and intent of the book, but it can get rather tedious trying to read it as a whole and I find myself using it more and more as a reference like one would with MCO. I previously rated this book five stars, but after just reading the Move by Move Nimzo-Indian book by John Emms, I have to scale it back to four stars since Emms demonstrated in his fine work how to provide not only great instruction but also enjoyment in an opening book. Watson's book does have a very useful instructive repertoire inside, I just can't say you will find great enjoyment reading it. All said though, I think most 1. d4 players would be happy with his selection.

A Strategic Opening Repertoire For White 17 septembre 2012

A great book! Mr. Watson covers all the bases in a clear and precise instructive manner. This repertoire will serve any player who wants a solid system against any response to 1.d4 ...! I have been an ICCF Master since the 70s and have used some of these systems with much success. His analysis is superb.
