Dejan Antic & Branimir Maksimovic
A Complete Guide for BlackSample pages (pdf)
This book presents new and surprising ways for Black to play for a win against 1.d4, a very popular first move. The Modern Bogo begins with 1.d4,e6; 2.c4,Bb4+; and offers the chance for Black to direct play along little known lines as well as the possibility of transposing into standard Nimzo and Bogo-Indian defence positions.
The authors have done a massive amount of reasearch for this book and consider all White's options (a.fter 1.d4 & 2.c4) in three main parts: 3.Bd2, 3.Nc3 and 3.Nd2. They present in-depth analysis and examples from practical play as well as quiz positions and solutions to test your understanding.
As in their previous book, "The Modern French: A Complete Guide for Black" they explain all relevant strategic concepts and attacking plans, present fresh concepts and numerous novelties.
This book can be seen as a companion volume to "The Modern French" as the two books together offer a repertoire for Black against 1.e4 and 1.d4, beginning with 1..e6.
Grandmaster Dejan Antic and International Master Branimir Maksimovic have created a highly original chess opening repertoire in the Modern Bogo, re-evaluating older analysis.
