The Israeli GM Victor Mikhalevski's first book "The Open Spanish" will be publsihed in January.

In the preface GM says he started playing Open Spanish since he was four, right after his elder brother IM Alex Mikhalevski tought him playing chess. "Since my childhood right up to the moment of writing these words, the Open Spanish has served me faithfully and helped me to win many important games, so when Quality Chess asked me to write a book on this opening system I didn’t have to think twice."

According to Mikhalevski the book "Grandmaster Repertoire 13 – The Open Spanish provides a complete repertoire for Black after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6, based on the Open Variation which occurs after 5.0–0 Nxe4. Black’s system is built on the principles of fast and active development, and fighting for the initiative whenever the opportunity arises."

The website of the publishing house Quality Chess which has offered Mikhalevski to write the book introduces the author: "Victor Mikhalevski is an Israeli grandmaster with a peak rating of 2632. He has represented Israel at Olympiads and other major team events, and has won many international tournaments. He is renowned as one of the world’s foremost opening experts."
