Book Description The Modern Defense is characterized by the moves 1..g6 and 2..Bg7. White can start out with 1.e4, then after 1..g6 play 2.d4 or 1.d4 g6 2.e4. If White does not occupt the center, Black continues developing along the paths given. A great attraction of this system is that it is universal, it can be played against any White first move. It is written from both the White and Black sides. Over the last several decades dozens of the world's top GM's(such as Seirawan, Timman, Miles, Christiansen, Hort, Vaganian, Nunn, Ljubojevic, and Tal among others) have adopted this mercurial fighting defense.

    The Modern Defence leads to sharp and dynamic positions from the very first few moves. Black concedes space in the center with a view to launching a counterattack based on his powerful bishop fianchetto. As leading grandmasters such as Alexei Shirov, Mikhail Gurevich and Jon Speelman himself have shown on numerous occasions, when it works, the Modern Defence is truly a spectacular weapon. This book will show you how to put it to use in your own games.
