Cayton's Compilation of the Barred Openings

The ACF recently added twelve previously barred openings to the three-move deck, expanding the tournament deck to 156 openings. The standard reference on these new openings, Dennis Cayton's Compilation of the Barred Openings (1997) is now available on the ACF Website! Although some of the play in Cayton's Compilation has been corrected during Mail-Play tournaments contested after 1997, Cayton's work remains essential reading.
