Queen's Indian Defence: Kasparov-System
102 Seiten, kartoniert, Batsford Chess, 1991
The Queen's Indian Defence has traditionally been an extremely reliable opening for Black, guaranteeing a solid position. The Kasparov System (4.a3) is an aggressive attempt to cut across Black's plans, invariably leading to dynamic positions with tactical opportunities for both sides.
One of the leading exponents of the Kasparov System over the last few years is Mikhail Gurevich, who presents here a fascinating insight into this highly fashionable opening. The emphasis is on the explanation of critical ideas, using complete games to illustrate typical themes from the opening, middlegame and endgame. Each defensive scheme is thoroughly analysed and appraised, with an assessment of its prospects in future years.
