Shortlisted for the English Chess Federation 2008 Book-of-the-Year Award, this instructional volume, by two internationally recognised grandmasters, covers the traps that can be expected after the double advance of the white d-pawn. For every possible opening after 1.d4 - including the Queen's Gambit and the King's Indian Defense - there are explanatory texts detailing the most typical trap motifs.
