    Book DescriptionThe Dutch Leningrad (1. d4 f5 2. g3 Nf6 3. Bg2 g6) is one of Black's most dynamic responses to the queen's pawn opening. From the first move, Black stakes a strong claim on the kingside, laying the groundwork for a potential attack on the white king. The Leningrad variation is a popular choice at club and tournament level as well as amongst grandmasters; it is a regular feature in the repertoires of Vassily Ivanchuk, Veselin Topalov and Mikhail Gurevich.

    In this book, Grandmaster Neil McDonald explains the strategy and tactics of this exciting opening. Through the use of model games for both sides, the author provides a thorough grounding in the key ideas, so that readers can quickly start to use the Dutch Leningrad in their own games.
