Kaufman's New Repertoire for Black and White

New edition of the double repertoire of openings based on Komodo recommendations, of which GM Kaufman is one of its developers. The White part has been rebuilt from scratch, now suggesting solid lines with 1.e4, while the Black part (Grünfeld and 1.e4 e5) has been completely revised and updated.

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 new book necessary. Larry Kaufman, who himself routinely plays the lines he advocates to others, discovered that after 1.d4 (the recommendation in his previous book) it became almost impossible to show a consistent advantage for White, especially against the Grünfeld and Nimzo/Ragozin defenses. The other factor was that chess engines have become so much stronger.

Larry Kaufman presents a completely new White repertoire with 1.e4 aiming for an objective advantage in the simplest practical manner. You are presented with two options, while you don't have to play the sharpest lines. The Black repertoire has been thoroughly revised and updated, and three new chapters have been added.

Kaufman's New Repertoire for Black and White is the first opening book that is primarily based on Monte Carlo search. The highly original analysis has resulted in loads of improvements on existing theory. This is a lucidly explained, ready-to-go and easy-to-digest repertoire with sound, practical lines that do not outdate rapidly and are suitable for masters while perfectly accessible for amateurs.

Larry Kaufman is an American Grandmaster. He has been involved in computer chess since 1967, when he worked on MacMacHack, the first computer that competed in tournaments with human players. More recently he has been working on the programs Rybka and Komodo.

Grandmaster Glenn Flear, on the The Kaufman Repertoire for Black and WhiteThe following:
"The book serves a purpose and does this very well. I have been hunting for something like this for a while. Thanks, Mr. Kaufman, my search is over!"
