Book Description"How do I handle white's tricky ways of avoiding the main lines?" or "I love playing the King's Indian, but no-one ever allows me to reach my favorite opening!" Does this sound like an all too familiar complaint? The answer to this problem lies here.
The truth is you will reach your favorite opening in barely half the games you play against 1. d4, and that's why this book is a godsend to those players fed up with blindly searching for the right way to play against these annoying White systems designed to avoid the main lines: the Trompowsky; the London System; the Torre Attack; the Barry Attack; the Colle System; the Veresov; the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit - the list goes on and on!
Yelena Dembo, who as a hardened King's Indian and Grunfeld player has considerable experience facing these irritating openings, deals with them in no uncertain terms, in each case offering Black a no-nonsense solution that enables you to face the future with confidence.
