Dmitry Kryakvin

The Modern Way to get the Upper Hand in Chess

Sample pages (pdf)

The secret of its success may be its anti-positional look. The pawn thrust g2-g4 is often so counter-intuitive that it’s a perfect way to confuse your opponents and disrupt their position. Ever since World Champion Mikhail Botvinnik started using it to defeat the elite grandmasters of his day, it has developed, on all levels of play, into an ever more popular and attractive way to fight for the initiative.

Grandmaster Dmitry Kryakvin owes a substantial part of his successes as a chess player to the g2-g4 attack. In this book he shows how it can be used to defeat Black in a number of important Closed and Semi-Closed Defences and Flank Openings: the Dutch, the Queen's Gambit, the Nimzo-Indian, the King’s Indian, the Slav and several variations of the English Opening.

With lots of instructive examples, Kryakvin explains the ins and outs of the attack on the g-file: the typical ways to gain tempi and keep the momentum, and the manoeuvres that will maximize your opponent's problems. After working with this book you will be fully equipped to use this modern battering ram to define the battlefield. You will have fun and win games!

Dmitry Kryakvin is an International Grandmaster from Russia and an experienced chess trainer and author.

Published 2019, softback, 288 pages.
