The Bishop's Opening allows White to dictate the pattern of play from as early as the second move. It is ideal for club and tournament players as it leads to positions in which a successful outcome depends on knowledge of the important ideas for both sides. The key plans and strategies are explained to make it easy for those who have limited time to study. A large number of world-class players employ it clearly confirming that it is a highly respected and formidable opening.

The opening was first recommended by Philidor in the 18th century, and then used to great effect by the legendary chess players Paul Morphy and Howard Staunton. More recently, Bent Larsen has inspired a new generation of players to take up this opening with victories at the highest level. This book covers:
