In this new edition of volume 4, former FIDE World Champion Alexander Khalifman continues to build an opening repertoire for White after 1.Nf3, based on the praxis of former World Champion Vladimir Kramnik.
This book features the Maroczy System after 1.Nf3,c5; 2.c4,g6; 3.e4, The Modern Defence 1.Nf3,g6; 2.e4, and the Trifunovich System 1.Nf3,d6; 2.d4. The common thread is that Black chooses a dark square strategy, often with ..g6; and ..Bg7.
Author Alexander Khalifman is a Russian Grandmaster who was the 14th FIDE World Chess Champion and currently runs a chess academy in St Petersburg.
