It's organized around example games, but there is a good variation index, and significant sidelines are annotated within the games in almost as much detail as the main games themselves.

The Catalan derives its name from Catalonia, after tournament organisers at the 1929 Barcelona tournament asked Savielly Tartakower to create a new variation in homage to the area's chess history. It had been played a few times before Tartakower's usage in the tournament, however: Réti–Leonhardt, Berlin 1928, for instance, transposed into an Open Catalan.

The Catalan is a favorite of many top grandmasters, with Kasparov, Karpov, and Korchnoi using it to good effect in key matches. Once White's Catalan Bishop has started breathing fire down the long diagonal, Black's days are numbered.

This is the first book to explain the Catalan in a way accessible to club and tournament players.

IM Dunnington focuses on the key plans at White's disposal, and how to exploit the typical errors Black makes when facing the Catalan, while providing full theoretical coverage of the sharp lines in which Black tries to hang on to the gambit pawn.

  • The Catalan is a complex opening that I decided to use as a weapon, particularly against aspiring younger players.
    In tournament play under 2000, predominantly e4 is played which puts the ball firmly into Black's court in terms of defenses to chose from.
    I have played e4 exclusively myself and consider to possess an excellent repertoire of opening theory.

    However, when playing younger players, I found that the key to victory is to play d4 and keep the position complex and not run into a well rehearsed and familiar defense line. The Catalan is ideally suited for such an approach. It starts a bit slow, keeps the position somewhat closed.

    The main theme of this opening is the white fianchettoed bishop which supports an attack on the queenside together with a Gambit pawn on the c file and the knight move to e5. Make no mistake, the Queenside attack can also be a cameo as the Queen on c2 eyes h7.
    Many younger players are not that familiar with a hypermodern opening and can be tricked swiftly into a losing endgame position. In fact, when opening with c4, d4 or even Nf3, many young players are uncomfortable as they feel to be on unchartered opening territory where they can be outplayed.

    Understanding the main lines is crucial and this book provides an excellent entry into this opening.

  • This book is a little old now for an opening manual and has been superseded by Raetsky and Chetverik's Everyman title, but it's still a better choice as an introduction. It's organized around example games, but there is a good variation index, and significant sidelines are annotated within the games in almost as much detail as the main games themselves. That said, there is a lot of room given to prose explanations of strategies and plans, which means that players new to the Catalan can appreciate the ideas even when playing slightly different move sequences. Dunnington chooses a conservative repertoire, including the infamous Bg5 drawing line loved by GMs such as Andersson. However, alternatives are frequently given, and some of the variations (e.g. against the early ...c5 by Black) are wild and hairy. Make no mistake, the Catalan really is a reversed Grunfeld. The introduction contains advice about transpositions to the Bogo-Indian and Tarrasch, but doesn't go very deep.
