The average club player doesn't need to study hundreds of pages of chess opening theory. Understanding structures and finding tactics are much more important than memorizing variations.

Renowned German chess trainers Erik Zude and Jörg Hickl have created an ideal club player's repertoire for Black. This compact manual presents a set of lines that is conveniently limited in scope, yet varied, solid and complete.
The core repertoire is based on lines that the authors have successfully played at (grand)master level for decades: the Antoshin Variation of the Philidor Defence against 1.e4 and the Old-Indian Defence against 1.d4.
There is only a limited number of plans, ideas and structures that you need to learn, and very few forcing variations.
You will develop your position with a sequence of streng standard moves and start your highly effective counterplay. Zude and Hickl provide common sense guidance, explain all typical characteristics and give practical examples. If you have an Elo rating between 1400 and 2200, you don't need to look further because you can Play 1... d6 Against Everything!
Jörg Hickl is an International Grandmaster, a former German Champion and a highly experienced chess trainer. Erik Zudeis an International Master from Germany and a trainer of juniors and club players.
