PREFACE TO THE SIXTH EDITION In the Sixth Edition of this book there is a notable change, which we are sure that all our supporters will appreciate. While we were considering the advisability of bringing it out in the current year we were approached by Mr. Reuben Fine with a suggestion that he should under take the task of revision and we gladly agreed. Reuben Fine needs no introduction to those who are interested in the game of chess. His past achievements had already made him famous and he added another glorious chapter to the story of his career, just as he had finished his work for us, by tieing for the first place in the great A. V. R. O. Tournament towards the end of 1938. Naturally we gave our reviser a free hand in dealing with his task, merely reserving to ourselves the editorial right of making such slight changes in his text as might seem to us necessary. Mr. Fine, however, scrupulously adhered to the traditions of Modern Chess Openings, while availing himself fully of the privilege which must be con ceded to a master of his rank of expressing his personal opinions on the lines of play which are illustrated in the book, and altering as he thought fit the introductions to the various openings. In comparing this new edition with its predecessor we may note that it contains 332 pages and 1,215 columns, as against 300 pages and 1,060 columns of seven years ago, We have gladly got rid of the cumbrous device of Addenda, which was forced upon us by circumstances of production in 1932. We have also, in deference to Mr. Fines wishes, abandoned the use of starred columns to indicate what appears to be the best line of play for both sides. In his preface the reviser explains the systemadopted by him in appraising lines of play, so no comment on it is needed from us. The only difficulty which arose in the completion of this edition was caused by our desire to introduce new variations from the A. V. R. O. Tournament after the manuscript had been sent to the printers and was in process of being set up. The printers work was held back sufficiently to permit the mention of the most important of these and it so happened that this delay made it possible to put in some of the novelties from the Hastings Tourna ment of 1938-39 and a few from the Leningrad-Moscow Tournament this year. In conclusion we should like to convey our personal thanks to Mr. Fine for the admirable way in which he has carried out his revision on which point we think our readers will agree, and to acknowledge how little he left us to do. The manuscript was typed by his wife, and the printers had no difficulty on the score of illegibility. We desire also to express our gratitude to all who have helped us in the preparation of this new editi6n, and especially to our assistants in the exacting work of reading the proofs, with particular mention of Messrs. F. J. Camm and R. Hutter, and Sir Gilbert Jackson. T E EDITORS. London, Januar 1939. THE task of revising Modern Chess Openings has been both arduous and pleasant arduous because of the almost endless ramifications of modern opening theory, which necessitated the examination of the openings of thousands of games pleasant because the result is a solution, albeit an incomplete one, to the complicated labyrinth. I have been guided by the principle of the earlier editions, that this work is intended to be both modern and practical For that reason I haveenlarged the sections on the Queens side openings and the Ruy Lopez, as these are the sine qua non of contemporary tournaments, although I have refrained from paying too much attention to any particular variation in these openings, since the practical player must be acquainted with a great number of different lines. I wish to express my grateful thanks to various friends who have helped me particularly to Mr...

This repertoire of easy-to-learn openings, based on Garry Kasparov's move 1 d4, offers openings with a modern twist. Each one has simple principles that allow White to play just about the same moves against the Grunfeld, King's Indian, and Nimzo-Indian Defense. There are also modern systems to repel the Dutch, Benoni, and even offbeat lines such as the Englund Gambit. Nothing is left out: the tricks and traps in the opening for both sides; the basic plan and strategy using entertaining games; and how to play the middlegame by following easy plans. Intermediate

This is a collection of opening traps by Grandmaster William Lombardy. The traps are great and cover every opening system. They need to be studied. A chess trap succeeds not because one player is a dumbbell and the other is a clever fox, but rather because the former has violated some basic principle of which the latter takes some advantage. Modern Chess Opening Traps with 200 of the finest examples of chess skullduggery culled from current master practice will appraise beginner and master alike of a fascinating variety of trap themes. Copious instructive notes guide the reader's every step to an even deeper knowledge of elementary principles and their sound application. Thus equipped, a player will be amply able to weave the inescapable web of destruction, surrounding the unwary opponent whose slightest error, most subtle violation of sacred principle, will now spell sudden and compete defeat. Although the entire gamut of chess openings is surveyed, a deliberate effort has been made to emphasize the presently accepted openings, those in greatest use in modern tournament practice. There are 48 sensational specimens of the Sicilian Defense, Bobby Fischer's favorite retort to the King Pawn Opening, 18 of the Ruy Lopez, 15 of the King's dian Defense, and two other potent weapons of the Fischer arsenal While Modern Chess Opening Traps may not actually transform a player into a Grandmaster, it will surely send a player well on his way to becoming the titan of his own bailiwick
