Strategic Ideas & Powerful weapons
by Viktor Moskalenko
Publisher: New In Chess, 2013
Edition: Paperback small
A popular chess opening explored and explained.
Grandmaster Viktor Moskalenko shakes up the lines of yet another chess opening! For those who have the Dutch Defence in their repertoire or play against it, this brings an explosive mixture of danger and opportunity. Danger if you stick to your old ways, opportunity if you are ready to take up Moskalenko’s new weapons or his refutations of old ones.
Moskalenko covers the Anti-Dutch, Leningrad, Stonewall and Classical variations. He guides you through this ground-breaking opening book with the enthusiasm, the ease and the humor that characterize his style.
