EBOOK - Starting Out - The ModernProduct Code: E-B0002EM
Publisher: Everyman Chess
Author: Nigel Davies
Year of Publication: 2008
Notation Type: Algebraic (AN)
Book DescriptionThe Modern Defence is a dynamic, ambitious and universal opening, one that can be used against virtually every system White can play. Black's provocative strategy is based upon allowing White to construct an imposing pawn centre in the anticipation that a well-timed strike will bring about its downfall. Both sides can play for high rewards, albeit at some risk: White can hope to succeed with a direct attack or to squash Black with a space advantage, while Black will aim to destroy White's centre and mop up the remains. All in all this can lead to intriguing battles in which one slip from either side is often fatal. In this book, Nigel Davies studies the Modern by going back to basics, introducing the key moves and ideas, and taking care to explain the reasoning behind them - something that has often been neglected or taken for granted.
Everyman Chess's Starting Out series has firmly established itself as the leading guide to studying openings for up-and-coming players.
