Reviews

"Anyone who plays the Tarrasch variation against the French or meets it with 3…Nf6 will definitely want to have this book. Other who meet 1.e4 with 1…e6, but who play other lines against the Tarrasch, will find the coverage of the Advance variation and second move alternatives quite useful.

Highly Recommended"

IM John Donaldson

"Berg also avoids the trap some real theoretical experts fall into of not bothering to tell the punter what's going on besides the actual moves; he's good at asides which illuminate why the players are playing the moves they are.

This is a very good book; I've got literally nothing negative to say about it"

IM John Cox, CHESS Magazine

The analyses are solid and detailed, and Emanuel Berg even sometimes contradicts the engine. The recommended systems offer high practical value."

IM Dirk Schuh

"This repertoire book written from the perspective of the second player has excellent content... I highly recommend it for purchase."
