Book DescriptionThe subject of this book, the Semi-Slav, is characterized b the moves ... d5, ... e6 nd ... c6 versus the Queen's Gambit. Inside the reader will find complete coverage of all lines excepting the Meran and the Botvinnik System.

The Semi-Slav is an opening complex which runs the gamut from tactical play (the Marshall Variation 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e5 3. Nc3 c6 4. e4 dxe4 5. Nxe4 Bb4+ 6. Bd2 Qxd2 7. Bxb4 Qxe4+) to refined positional struggles (The Romih Variation 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e5 3. Nc3 c6 4. Nf3 Nf6 5. e3 Nbd7 6. Bd3 Bb4.) In the past, such players as Botvinnik, Kotov, Najdorf, Reshevsky and Euwe debated its finer points. Today's Games all use it on a regular basis.

This book was written by IM John Donaldson and IM Jeremy Silman, two of the most well-respected authors in chess.

    The positions arising in the Moscow variation and the Anti-Moscow variation are in principle so different that I have decided to arrange the material in the two parts of the book in different fashion too. The part of the book, which deals with the analysis of the plans and possibilities in the much calmer Moscow variation can be compared to a thorough guide of the series "street by street".
