 Opening books by GM Aleksander Delchev

Introduction “Expert Opening Preparation” 2023

… So far I have published about 10 books on openings and for me it is not a problem to publish another 10 or even more. However, in the modern era I believe the lifespan of an opening book is incredibly short as new games are constantly being played and new ideas being found. I feel it would be much more useful to my readers if I uncover a new approach to opening preparation, which will be more long-lasting and will improve you as a chess player as well.
