This completely revised and up-dated English edition is a ‘must’ for all those players who wish to escape from the stultifying effects of ‘main-line’ analysis of Queen’s Pawn Openings, and enter the relatively unexplored habitat of the Vulture!
The Vulture and Associated Opening Systems
The openings at Black's disposal against 1 d4 fall roughly into three categories. He can choose the safe but stodgy Queen's Gambit Declined (the QGD is out of favor these days); he can play the sharp but risky "indian" opening such as the King's Indian, Modern Benoni, Benko Gambit etc.; or he can opt out for the family of openings which constitutes the middle ground between the above extremes - the Nimzo-Indian, Queen's Indian and Bogo-Indian defenses.
