COTAP (Chess Opening: THeory and Practice)
Compiled by Phony Benoni
--*--

Every player has a unique chess history. I am one of the very few who got into serious chess through a newsstand sale.

It was December, 1967, and I was visiting a local bookstore when a copy of <Chess Review> jumped out at me. I had read chess books and played the game for years, but it was just another of those school lunchtime activities.

This now changed.advertised on the inside front cover, the rest was a matter of

In no time, I had a subscription and entered postal chess tournaments. And that, of course, meant I needed an openings book. With <Chess Openings : Theory and Practice> being technique (and a check for $12.50)..

I quickly got hooked on COTAP (as I will always think of it), but tnot because of the innumerable lines of analysis. I can't memorize hat stuff. My mind just doesn't work that way.

No, what really fascinated me were the illustrative games. I learned about openings not by studying how they were supposed to work, but by studying how they actually worked.

The position you get is not as important as what you do with position you get.

-------------------

There are quite a few collections of COTAP games, but I don't know if any is complete. Guess I'll find out as I go. along

Something I will do differently is to summarize the information about section and chapter in the introduction rhather than each individual entry. Also, when Game appears, this will indicate the number within the entire book.
