Gonzalez - The English defence

The English Defence (1 d4 e6 2 c4 b6) is a dynamic, counter-attacking line, initially investigated by English grandmasters. Black aims to set White difficult problems to solve at the very earliest stage of the game. Black’s play is provocative – aiming to lure White into establishing a big pawn centre. This is a risky strategy as White falls behind in development and Black switfly becomes very active. However, if White’s response is more circumspect then Black can often manoeuvre into favourable structures reminiscent of positions arising from the Nimzo-Indian Defence, the Queen’s Indian Defence or even the Dutch.

José González provides an excellent analysis of this complex opening and carves out a powerful repertoire for Black covering all lines after 1 d4. It is possible for White to avoid the "English battle" by playing either 2 Nf3 or even 2 e4 (a rare move for 1 d4 players but seen occasionally). Gonzalez champions an aggressive variant of the Dutch against 2 Nf3 and outlines a simple but effective French Defence repertoire to counter 2 e4.

  • A complete repertoire for Black to counter 1 d4.
  • The question and answer approach provides an excellent study method.  318 pages

Semkov - Playing for a win with ... b6

Playing for a win with ...b6 by Semko Semkov. The author proposes a full repertoire against 1.d4 and 1.c4, which is theoretically sound and leads to sharp, strategically unbalanced positions. It is based on the so-called English Defence 1.d4 e6 2.c4 b6 or 1.c4 b6. A great deal of the book is devoted to White's tries to deviate from theoretical dispute and transfer the game into the Queen's Indian with g3.   236 pages

WATSON - Mastering the Chess Openings vol. 3

Troisième volume d'une série qu'on ne présente plus - volume assez différent des précédents, au demeurant, puisque consacré entièrement à la partie Anglaise (vieille spécialité du MI américain), et donc sensiblement plus détaillé que les deux premiers tomes qui ratissaient autrement large.

MARIN - Grandmaster Repertoire : The English vol 1

Pour tous ceux à qui le Watson n'aurait pas suffi, ceci est le premier volume d'une série de je suppose trois, puisque ce très volumineux pavé ne traite que les lignes découlant de 1.c4 e5 (et encore pas toutes puisqu'il s'agit d'un répertoire blanc). Dans un avant-propos (plutôt une notice d'utilisation, en fait), l'auteur demande au lecteur de lire son opus intégralement dans l'ordre. Je me demande si quelqu'un aura le courage de suivre cette recommandation
