This book has been written to try and avoid repeating the same mistakes! By cataloguing my games (in this edition from 1971 to 2011) against the ‘book’ lines (shown in BOLD), you can see where either I or my opponent varied, and the consequences.
As can be seen, I have included all book lines, but only in detail where it relates to a game that I have played.
Also, I hope to give an insight of a typical club strength player (over this period my grade has gone from 137 up to 178 and back down to 167). The games mostly come from league games, congresses & inter-club tournaments, and therefore include games with/without quickplay finishes, quickplay including time handicap games, but no lightning games.
