Glazkov, Igor/ Tseitlin, Mikhail/ Complete Vienna
(Batsford, London 1995)
Paperback, 144 Seiten
The Vienna is a superb choice for the practical player. From move two White side-steps a mass of theory, yet retains a wide choice of violent gambits and quiet strategic lines.
White's plan is simple development, but the possibility of launching a quick attack led by the feared f-pawn keeps the pressure on Black.
• The most thorough coverage ever given to this classic
• Many variations reappraised and given fresh life
• Thorough analysis of Black's defensive and counterattacking schemes
Twice Champion of Moscow, Mikhail Tseitlin is one of the few players to have been awarded the Grandmaster title for both over-the-board and correspondence play. His successes with the Vienna in both these disciplines bear witness both to its soundness, and its practical sting.
Igor Glazkov has thirty-five years' experience as an openings theoretician. His books include volumes on the King's Gambit openings and Sicilian Scheveningen, and have been published in five languages and many countries.
Tseitlin and Glazkov's first book for Batsford, The Budapest for the Tournament Player, received outstanding reviews in the chess press:
'a very lively work full of sharp variations and entertaining games' John Walker, Oxford Times 'an ideal guide for those wishing to add the defence to their repertoire'
John Emms, Eastern Daily Press
