Alexander Beliavsky & Adrian Mikhailchishin
The Petrosian System (1.d4,Nf6; 2.c4,e6; 3.Nf3,b6; 4.a3) was, at first, thought of as a typical example of former World Champion Tigran Petrosian's cautious approach to the game. However, it brought him many points and when, in the 1980s, Garry Kasparov used 4.a3, as part of a dangerous attacking plan, the system became a major weapon against the Queen's Indian Defence.
In this book the authors present an objective analysis of the Petrosian System, examining critical ideas for both sides. Each part of the book has a "Main Ideas" section which is followed up by a "Move by Move" section containing more detailed analysis and discussion of plans.
Alexander Beliavsky is a four time USSR Champion and a former World Championship contender. Adrian Mikhailchishin is a Grandmaster, originally from the USSR, and was Slovenian Champion in 2002.
