This book is about the Marshall Attack and the lines which can be grouped together under the banner of the so-called Anti-Marshall. The theory has developed so much in the last decade that there is more than enough material to be going on with just in those areas, but I also decided to include a detailed look at an important line in the Exchange Variation.
PRE-ORDER - The Modernized Marshall Attack
The Dutch Defense is an old opening. A seriously old opening. So old, in fact, that in large part it currently has the reputation of not really causing a well-prepared White player to fear losing. That is especially the case with the variant of it I am analysing in this book: the Stonewall (in which Black continues with ...eb and ...d5). I intend to show that that impression is mistaken.
The Modernized Stonewall Defense
Two great books from the Everyman Chess Library, Fighting the Ruy Lopez by Milos Pavlovic and Open Ruy Lopez by Glenn Flear, brought together in one volume.
Counterattacking Lines for Black Against the Ruy Lopez
A Complete Repertoire for White and Black
In his sixth book for Thinkers Publishing, Milos Pavlovic has taken a close look at the popular but rather unexplored Scotch Game.

Milos has created a comprehensive repertoire for White and Black, highlighting the many tactical and positional themes this underrated opening has to offer.
The Modernized Scotch Game
In this book, Milos Pavlovic takes a fresh look at the relatively unexplored but most dangerous Colle-Zukertort attack. Drawing upon his considerable opening experience and using plenty of illustrative games, he reveal the secrets how to pose Black serious problems using different subtle move orders. Milos created a comprehensive repertoire for White and highlighting the many tactical and positional themes this dynamic opening contains.
The Modernized Colle-Zukertort Attack
This book was originally published in 1947 with 55 of his best games, the last game being against World Championship Botvinnik, which ended in a draw. In 1981, he sought to expand this book by adding ten more games including his draw against Fisher, the last game, bringing the total number of games to 65 and the last year to 1976.
If You Must Play Chess

The Modernized Najdorf
The Nimzo-Indian and Queen's Gambit Declined are amongst black's soundest and most universal answers to 1.d4. In his trademark style, Milos investigates the most positional ways to proceed after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6. He analyses all the critical lines whilst also taking a close look at all the sidelines and gives Black many new possibilities to spice up the game. We are convinced that this book will bring you inspirational games and results.

The third in his "weapons" series for Thinker's Publishing, Grandmaster Milos Pavlovic analyzes the Benoni and introduces many new and unexplored ideas in this exciting opening. We are convinced that this book will inspire the Benoni player to use his "reloaded weapons" and achieve great results!
Reloaded Weapons in the Benoni
In this book, Grandmaster Milos Pavlovic investigates one of the most popular openings: the King's Indian, with a focus on little explored dynamic ways to counter the basic White system.
New Weapons in the King's Indian
