"U cannot be serious!" by IM Gerard Welling and IM Michael Basman

A wonderful new book about Mike Basman's chess will be released at the beginning of April 2021! (And this is not an April Fools Joke 😉)

Two of the most esteemed chess players in the world of Unorthodox Chess Openings combined their efforts to produce the FINAL word on Basman's unusual openings.

A new book with 304 pages!

A real labour of love.
