In recent years, openings theory has evolved so much that it’s become increasingly difficult to decide between the tangle of lines, analysis and variations. It's a struggle even for Grandmasters to keep up with it all, not to mention club players!
It’s no coincidence that the World Champion Magnus Carlsen often plays secondary lines to achieve a less-known middle game position and sidestep his opponent’s preparation. His incredible quality often allows him to accumulate small advantages in the late middlegame and endgame which he then converts to victory. But how many Carlsen’s are there in the world?
Bearing this in mind, International Master Michael Rahal has devised a fantastic and brand NEW opening repertoire for White with 1.e4, aimed especially at club level and tournaments players. All the variations he has chosen have the same characteristics, namely they are lines with a solid reputation and thus not easy to refute over the board. They are aggressive initiative-seeking lines, and not bein main lines, they also pack an element of surprise.
