They did it! Dejan Antic and Branimir Maksimovic have created a complete chess opening repertoire for Black players in only two books.
First they wrote the acclaimed The Modern French (against 1.e4). Now The Modern Bogo provides Black players with a comprehensive answer to 1.d4. The two books complement each other perfectly.
The point is that the authors recommend to answer 1.d4 with the direct 1...e6, for the follow-up 2.c4 Bb4+. In this way they avoid complex theoretical Nimzo-Indian lines and enable both amateur and professional players to find their own way in little-explored variations.
The Modern Bogo covers all the possibilities for White after 1.d4 e6... except for 2.e4, after which you should play the French!
Antic and Maksimovic have done a massive amount of research, and found many new strategic concepts and attacking plans. All of them are explained clearly and thoroughly.
You will find that this opening not only gives you good chances to equalize as Black, but also many opportunities to play for a win.
This new book by English IM Richard Pert gives you a complete attacking repertoire on the Trompowsky: 1. d4 and 2. Bg5! Tested in games at all levels, this opening is a powerful and sound weapon. However, since it is little known, it will often come as a very unpleasant surprise for your opponents...
Histoire de ne pas rester les deux pieds dans le même sabot, Everyman inaugure avec cet ouvrage une nouvelle collection intitulée “Chess Developments”, dédiée aux avancées récentes de la théorie des ouvertures. Ce premier volume est consacré au retour en grâce de la Benoni, et explore en détail les trois principales armes blanches “modernes” : le système h3-Fd3, la variante f4-Fb5+ et le fianchetto. Si les variantes présentées sont à la pointe de la théorie, les explications restent heureusement accessibles au commun des joueurs...
