  • The Modern Defense - Move by Move
    The Modern Defence is an ambitious, counter-attacking choice for Black which can be played against all mainline openings. In typical hypermodern style, Black allows White to occupy the centre and then undermines this centre by attacking it with pawns and pieces. In this book, Cyrus Lakdawala examines the key variations of the Modern Defence. He shares his experience and knowledge, presents a repertoire for Black and provides answers to all the key questions.

  • Chess Informant - ISSUE 119
    Chess Informant 119 Viking is largely dedicated to the newly crowned world champion, Magnus Carlsen. He’s the emerging global brand and the new face of our beloved game. We offer exclusive Carlsen photos inside Chess Informant 119, but for the cover we preferred the symbolism of a sailing drakkar boat. This newest installment of the Informant is all about red and blue that one can connect with the Norwegian flag, perhaps as additional evidence that Vikings are back in fashion.

There is one section on each of 2...dc and 2...d4, before 4 chapters on the various Slav and Semi-Slav structures and 2 on an anti-Queen's Gambit Declined approach. In short this provides: A tried and tested repertoire against some of the most common and most solid black lines, presented by an established GM author An emphasis on understanding the themes and key ideas rather than a maze of complex variations Up to date game references and analysis that will stand the test of time About the Author(s) Alexander Delchev is European Grand Prix winner in 2004.
