Product type: Printed book

In stock

Jerry van Rekom & Leo Jansen

The Lion arises after 1.e4,d6; 2.d4,Nf6; 3.Nc3,Nbd7; although Black can consider 3..e5; which is also examined in this book. The authors have avoided lines which transpose directly to the Philidor Defence as these are covered in specialist books on the Philidor.

The main sections cover 4.f4 (The Lion's Den) 4.Nf3 - including an extensive analysis of lines where White attempts a sacrifice on f7 (The Lion's Claw and The Lion's Roar), 3..e5; (The Lion's Yawn) and Anti-Lion Systems (The Lion's Mouth). The authors present their own and other peoples analysis, backed up with example games and game fragments. The introduction covers the history of The Lion and questions of pawn structure.

This is an updated version of the 2001 book "The Lion: The Black Weapon".

Authors Jerry van Rekom and Leo Jansen are two strong Dutch club players who developed the system and wrote the original book about it in 1997.

Published 2008, softback, 280 pages.
