Konstantin Sakaev

"I have endeavoured to present and explain to you all the finer points of this opening, as I understand them. In general, the critical positions have been treated thoroughly and I have also suggested and analyzed a great many new ideas in this book.
Some variations which have amassed considerable tournament practice, but which, in my view, are less principled, have been covered only briefly. Otherwise, the book would have become too big, losing its essential purpose.
Unfortunately, too many authors write chess books in that way; they offer no original analysis and often quote outdated games, some of which are very weakly played and almost useless." Konstantin Sakaev
