The two internationally recognised grandmaster authors - Rainer Knaak is considered an expert on the openings, and Karsten Müller on the endgame - therefore propose two main objectives:
- the student should master the traps in the openings he plays, in order to avoid disasters;
- but he can also systematically try to expand his opening repertoire, in order himself to set traps.
This first volume contains all the important openings after 1.e4, such as the Italian, French, Spanish, Sicilian etc., as well as introductory texts with their typical motifs, with which one should be familiar. In this way, as a welcome side effect, the reader is guaranteed to improve his combinative skill.
