The Catalan is a sophisticated opening system which is popular at all levels of chess. In recent years it has been catapulted into the limelight by Vladimir Kramnik, who has revitalized it with many new ideas and has utilized it with great success against the world's strongest players - on occasion making it look like a forced win for White! In this book, Grandmaster Nigel Davies presents a major study of this important opening. Using illustrative games and drawing upon his wealth of personal experience with the Catalan, Davies provides a reliable and dynamic repertoire for White, covers the main plans for both sides, and tackles crucial modern day issues such as move orders. Features include: grandmaster coverage of a world-class opening; provides answers to all of Black's main defences; and, highlights essential tactical and positional ideas. Nigel Davies is a Grandmaster, a winner of numerous international tournaments and a former British Rapidplay Champion. He's a renowned coaching expert and is the author of many successful books. Previous works for "Everyman Chess" include his "Gambiteer" series and the highly acclaimed "Play 1 e4 e5!".
