Book Description

Five years after the first edition, the book was completely rewritten and redesigned. While remaining true to the original structure, this new edition underwent major changes. The most notable one is the section devoted on the variation 6.Be3 e5.

It was divided on two separate parts for the retreats 7.Nf3 and 7.Nb3. Both of them are totally new. For instance, Black's repertoire against 7.Nb3 Be6 8.f3 is now based on the topical 8...h5 where the authors analyse original new plans.

The Poisoned Pawn section has also been considerably changed to reflect the new discoveries in the 7.f4 h6 line. The Fianchetto system now considers 6...e5, together with 6.g3 e6. The 6.f4 system has been enriched with 6...Qc7 while retaining 6...e5 as a main repertoire.

6.a4 is now met by 6...e5, instead of 6...Nc6. The rare systems also underwent a major update due to the increased popularity of lines like 6.h3 and 6.Qf3. The book now includes games played until 25.09.2012. Special thanks to Alexander Delchev for his contribution to the work.

  • Offbeat King's Indian
    The King's Indian is one of the most exciting and complex defences that black can employ against the queen's pawn opening. The main lines of the King's Indian are very sharp and tactical but they are also incredibly theoretical in nature it can be a full time job simply keeping up with the latest developments and fashion. So it is not surprising that many playing white choose to look elsewhere for something to counter this popular opening. In Offbeat King's Indian distinguished openings expert Krzysztof Panczyk studies unusual and less theoretical systems for white, ones that are tricky and are likely to throw the King's Indian player off his or her stride early on in the game. Variations investigated include lines with an early Bd3, ones with Nge2,l and ones involving a swift Bg5. By studying this new book, white players can arm themselves with a while new weaponry of lines against the King's Indian, while those playing Black can look closely for the recommended antidotes.
