Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0812917855, Paperback)Modern Chess Openings, better known in the chess world as MCO, has been called "the chess player's bible" since it was first produced by Walter Korn almost 60 years ago. With this 13th incarnation, Korn took the role of editor and put the update in the capable hands of International Grandmaster Nick De Firmian. The result is MCO-13, a grander, fully revised and greatly expanded version of this classic work. One important and welcome update over earlier editions is the incorporation of algebraic notation, making the book useful to a wider range of readers. The in-depth analysis of all the major chess openings currently in use--and several minor ones--is based on their use and performance in every major tournament game for several years prior to publication. Even popular old openings, such as the Vienna Game and Two Knights Defense, and tricky offenses such as the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit and "Fried Liver" Attack are given detailed attention. The book is divided into five major segments covering symmetrical King's Pawn openings, semi-open King's Pawn defenses, Queen's Pawn openings, Indian Defense systems, and flank openings. MCO-13 belongs on the shelf of every serious chess enthusiast.
