Seven years after his acclaimed and bestselling The Kaufman Repertoire for Black and White, Grandmaster Larry Kaufman is back with his new repertoire book, covering the entire scope of chess openings for both White and Black, in one volume. Two important developments made this book necessary. Larry Kaufman, who himself routinely plays the lines he advocates to others, discovered that after 1. I think the B 1 2. Two bishops are a tad 1 4. White is better here, but Black 1 4.
No one has repeated 1 5. After 1 6. But I favor Caruana's plan of. Merlimont 2 0 1 1 , won by White. I:tce 1 f4 1 9. SLb7 1 2. The alternatives: 1 2. If White declines, Black may later fmd a more useful move than.
At first glance it just looks like Black has 1 2. Then you should notice the 1 3. Then White will have to worry about 1 4. Here Black For example: 1 5. Due to the pressure on White's weak pawns and king, Black will surely regain a pawn for his exchange.
Now The threat of 1 5. This improvement seems to regain the pawn and equalize. In the actual game Black stayed a pawn down after 2 5. Ilffl l::! J:lb1 -b4. This should be J:lf1 xf4 ttJg4-e5 J:la1 -b1. Center Game and Ponziani In this chapter we consider two fairly rare white options after l.
Neither line should give White any advantage at all if you follow the lines given here. Now the normal retreat for the queen is to e 3 , although the alternate choice of a4 has long been championed by veteran IM Walter Shipman. It has the drawback of failing to defend the e4 pawn as securely though. White must choose between the 'safe' 8.
In the former case Black's threats against the e4 pawn and the c4 bishop tend to put him a bit ahead in the attacking race. The gambit move 8. Jhe4 usually recommended or by See Game 9. White's best move is 4. However my current computer analysis makes it look Jess appealing than the safe 4. If White responds S.
The Hanham l. In case of 8. Iig4 1 4. Jhe4 is a good alternative which is 1 9. The Ponziani, which is quite rare in top level play but is seen sometimes at lower levels. In case of 4. Les 1 0. White can gain the 1 3. However 1 0. His formation would have been considered ideal in the 1 s. Black plays for a draw from a i. In both cases we respond with 2.
There are two reasons for this. Why go to c6 in the first place if you don't need to do so? The second reason is that the moves.. In the former case it is because of the possibility of When White plays 3. White has nothing better than 4. The idea is that after the obvious 6.
Assuming a later tt:Jbd2, we end up with a position somewhat similar to the Breyer, but this time we are playing against it! The Breyer is an excellent defense to the Spanish, but it is still not quite equal,. White can instead invite a bishop trade by 6. See Game 1 0. If White chooses 3. With the knight on c3 the plan with. This way we may be able to dispense with. This plan seems to give full equality. Fortunately, the reply After the usual 4. For 3. White is playing a Benoni i i ,.
A i i i without the sting of the fianchettoed ' '.. We just provoke 5. White has saved a tempo has the better prospects after 6.
White has not yet played h2-h3 or 1 2. Black has not like He has played the useful choice 7. Black is playing the i. VxgS 1 8. With all the pawns Analysis diagram. White has no 5. This is 1 7. With a main lines of the Spanish due to this pair of rooks added as they are here and pawn formation. Black has more space and 1 3.
Black actually played 1 The idea of the text is to provoke a2-a3 or a2-a4 so White 1 0. O-O-O tt::lg 4 1 6. Yg3 tt::lh S 1 6. I think that. In the l. He is generally better off playing The normal move order would be 1. I don't like to use bhtz games, Black's healthy vs.
Once Black plays Knights Game. The game actually went 1 7. The White bishop on a2 is shut out of the 5. JL :g: Now 1 6. He played 1 He White's eS pawn is weak; should win. Gambits fn this chapter we consider all the lines in which White starts with 1. It is said that 'the only way to refute a gambit is to accept it', and this is in most cases my advice. But it's not good to generalize too much; each gambit should be studied independently. These gambits are mostly pretty rare in rop level chess, but amateurs will often encounter them, and will be likely to fall into..
Black can accept 2. Since I believe that Black has the better chances after returning the pawn, I see no real point in learning the lines where he tries to hang on to it.
However I recommend the move-order l. The point is that with the normal move order White can play the Bishop's Gambit 3. However by playing. Back to 4. White has a couple ways to try to come out a pawn ahead, but they don't end. In Game 1 1. In the game White manages to regain the pawn without losing the bishop pair, but he ends up with much worse pawn structure.
In Game I 1. We cannot play 4. Fortunately for us the move 4. Technically this is 'declining' the gambit as White could pta, 4. This line was popular around 1 and was shown to me as a kid by an elderly Norman Whitaker, a top player from t:hf 1 s and now known to have had a long criminal career as a swindler.
See Game 1 1. The Goring Gambit I. Still, it pays to know what to do. Declining by 4. In the latter case it seems to me that White lacks sufficient play for the pawn unless he chooses to head for an even endgame. See Game 1 I. S for this and for the Scotch Gambit 4. Perhaps the most respectable of the gambits in this chapter is Evans' Gambit.
For the rest of the 1 s it was practically the main line of chess, but it almost died out around 1 due in part to 'Lasker's Defense'. Kasparov brought it back from obscurity with a few wins in the mid- I s, including one over his then main rival Anand.
It was again revived by Nigel Short, especially with a game against Nielsen which cast doubt on the line I recommended for Black in my previous book the game was played just weeks after I completed that book.
I also give a safe line in case I'm wrong. The gambit goes: l. The idea is that White normally wants to play 4. Normally you need at least two tempi and more typically three to justify a gambit, but the tempo is quite valuable in this position due to threats on f7. Black should accept by 4. When White attacks f7 by 7. If White then takes on eS we return the pawn by 8. If White does not take on move 8 Black should be able to retain the pawn without conceding too much compensation.. CiJc3 tlJxc3 7.
He can regain it by better development and a slightly safer. I prefer the move order 2. He played pawn. Here Black is for choice as 8. J:te8 1 8. A draw is to be expected. Not 1 0. An alternative is 1 4. Vc7xe5 4. Wf2-f3 If S.
J tack of any power. Wf3xf4 l:td 2xc2 7. Objectively 1 5. Play may continue 1 6. Also after 9. J::[ h 8-d8 He has only a tempo for the pawn S. I to the Goring Gambit 6. The Danish Gambit. White has two tempi for the pawn, which with queens off is not enough; After 4.
In the event of S. N Black plans Wg1 -h1 lLlb8-c6 sation for a pawn, but he is down two! When in doubt, lWe7 Black has a winning attack 9. More I;If1 -e1?? White has the bishop pair and somewhat better development which is enough for a pawn but hardly for two; B 8. He will 7. White doesn't 8. J:i:a6 next, and White has three isolated pawns. The text settles for one pawn up rather than two, but permits Black to castle. Wxd8 Black is for choice, as the king is a great Also Black has a potential outside passed pawn.
If It is sound enough, but side passer might be enough to draw. I give this line as a safe alternate to my main recommendation Black actually played the inferior The strong knight on f4 and the better black pawn structure make up for the poorly placed knight on aS.
It's hard to see much compensation for the bishop pair in this open position, so Black is somewhat better. White 4. The text move is a computer improvement over both games, preserving the bishop pair. This is the best attempt to refute the Evans 8. Since Black can now play 9. The game actually went 1 1. It is surprisingly hard for White to deal with the threat of.
Next Black can play. Scotch and Four Knights Opening Igroup these two openings together because they often transpose: l. In this chapter we look at all lines that typically begin with either the Scotch or Four Knights Opening. Now after 4. This endgame is about equal but rather hard to win as Black, and since If White responds with 9. I don't even see how White fully equalizes in this line. The Scotch Four Knights Opening is not very promising for White, but there are some tricks so you need to study the line.
If White avoids this ending he may achieve a slightly better pawn. See Game 1 2. Unusual fourth moves after the four knights come out, including 4. In the former case simple development with The sacrificial 4. Keeping the extra piece is probably theoretically best, but for practical play just retreat the knight to c6 when it is attacked and give back the piece by answering d5 with. Most novices play 4.
However, computer analysis fails to show full equality for Black in the traditional lines after that move. The main line of the Four Knights is For both of.
Vd8-e7 1. Vd1 -e2 tt:Jf6-d5 2. The fact that White's rook is stuck on a 1 to defend a2 means that White can only aspire to a draw.

This system is named the 'Glek' Four 1 8. Black returns the piece to obtain a small but clear edge. White is playing the Black bishop pair, though Black can also allow side of the Scotch Four Knights, with the this by playing either 6. In a closed position a knight is at least as good as an unpaired bishop. The computers like Black due to the less safe white king, but I'll call it equal.
