Review: Chess on the Edge


My latest book review for ChessCafe is now online, at their main review page, for the next week. It can also be seen in their archives.

I found the three-volume compilation of over 500 GM Duncan Suttles games to be quite instructive and entertaining. Every single game is annotated, most of them extensively, with primarily textual explanations rather than endless variations.

If you're looking for an offbeat opening approach (Suttles nearly always played 1...g6, regardless of how his opponent opened the game), this is a very worthwhile book to explore.
