The Lion

The black weapon


Katalog
Inhalt
Katalog englische Flagge

The first and second editions of 'The Lion, the black weapon' were a great success in the Netherlands. Within two years they were both sold out. This has led to a third edition. Many positive reactions, suggested games and analyses have resulted in the demand for the English version. With the help and cooperation of Marlies van der Wai an English version has been realized. That is why the authors of this book arc very grateful to Marlies for her translation.

With the English print of 'The Lion, the black weapon' the editors think they have made an important contribution to the theoretical and practical aspects of a chess opening that has become well-known in the Netherlands. Also thanks to the enthusiasm of the pre-eminent player of the Lion, Leo Jansem the editors have put together a kind of encyclopedia of the Jansen-system, the Philidor or whatever one wishes to call it. The name of the Lion stems from the following considerations:

  • The black opening appears calm, just like the half-sleeping predator the Lion is. A Lion is the King of animals for a reason; he uses his powers very efficiently.
  • The contradictory features of the big cat are also displayed in the opening. The Lion is usually silky, but aware when he is attacked or gets hungry. With minimal effort he chases his prey with his predator's instinct.
  • Finally LEO is the Latin name for Lion. This with a wink to Leo Jansen, a great advocate of this system for years.

On account of new analyses, games and readers' comments, the system has been further perfected. Not that the editors have the illusion that they have discussed an undefeatable system, but the editors do in fact feel they have provided many chess players with an elaborate weapon that has proved its value in practice. But what is the Lion all about?...

All aspects and variations ... are discussed in this book. The most important features, turns and combinations are explained.

Of course no theoretical book can be complete, but the editors of 'The Lion, the black weapon' think they approach completeness with this third edition. With the elaborate discussion of the above-mentioned opening the editors of the chess-club 'Schaak-vereniging Sliedrecht' believe that they have published a unique book. With this publication the writers hope to have made a contribution to the noble sport of chess.
