Strategic Ideas and Powerful Weapons.
Grandmaster Viktor Moskalenko shakes up the lines of yet another chess opening! For those who have the Dutch Defence (1.d4,f5) in their repertoire or play against it, this brings an explosive mixture of danger and opportunity. Danger if you stick to your old ways, opportunity if you are ready to take up Moskalenko's new weapons or his refutations of old ones.
In the eight chapters of this ground-breaking opening book Moskalenko covers the Anti-Dutch, Leningrad, Stonewall and Classical variations. With 55 key games and extensive explanations and analysis he guides you through the opening with the enthusiasm, the ease and the humour that characterize his style. His book is packed with new weapons for both sides as well as tricks, puzzles, plans and statistics.
