Grandmaster Opening Preparation by Jaan Ehlvest

There are hundreds of opening books available, full of deep analysis, but many of them fail to explain the reasons for choosing one computer line over another. And how top players distinguish between good and bad opening lines remains a mystery to most of the chess world.

Grandmaster Opening Preparation addresses such questions as how to balance computer preparation with human considerations, along with a wealth of practical advice on how to go about building the opening repertoire which is right for you. The book also provides an in-depth treatment of the evolution in understanding of Isolated Queen’s Pawn positions, which will enable the reader to become more effective in a multitude of openings, with either colour.

Jaan Ehlvest is an Estonian-American grandmaster, a former Estonian Champion, and a former Soviet and European Junior Champion. Ehlvest is also an Olympiad Gold medallist and has been ranked in the top five in the world.

Reviews

"There will not be so many casual and club chess players who have the time/ambition to strive for the grandmaster title. But it does not hurt when the above-mentioned people try to increase insight and fun by learning about the activities that grandmasters practice on a daily basis to be successful... the instructions in this book - how to use the computer, how to choose the opening that suits you in terms of playing style (but also in terms of character), how to get to know an opening better than by just memorizing the moves - are all also important for the average chess player who wants to learn something."
