Opening Repertoire: The Modern Defence


The Modern Defence is an opening that will appeal to player of an experimental nature. Black allows White to establish an apparently impressive position in the centre. The plan is to use this structure as a target – it will be restrained, undermined and eventually destroyed. When this plan works it can succeed beautifully but, naturally, if Black’s play is inaccurate there is a danger of being overwhelmed. For this reason a thorough understanding of the intricacies of this opening is essential. Opening Repertoire: The Modern Defence examines all aspects of this highly complex opening and provides the reader with well-researched, fresh, and innovative analysis. Each annotated game has valuable lessons on how to play the opening and contains instructive commentary on typical middlegame plans. The suggested lines for Black are based around the very latest games and analsysis.

Players from 1800-2300, who have a solid foundation having mastered basic opening principles by answering 1.e4 with 1…e5, and who are looking to branch out, will find The Modern Defence an excellent first step.–John Donaldson, International master … particularly strong in explaining the key motifs black should remember.–CHESS Magazine Got it recently and am working through the Anti-Austrian Attack lines in Ch 6. Appreciate the fresh insights and analysis of the old-school …g6, …c6, …d5 …h5 line… “This line is clearly not for the swashbuckling Modern player who loves unclear, tactical positions. Instead this line is designed for the strategic street fighter, who is comfortable in closed positions.” This modern/old school defense was a favorite of Maryland, Washington DC players in the late 1970s. A wonderful book with well excellent annotations on the 66 games!–Michael Ciamarra, FIDE and US Chess Trainer Perfect in every inch as all books published by Cyrus. You can find here a complete repertoire book just read and effect and the opening will come quickly. There is not only variants but comments and perfectly selected games which would help understand positions. That all smashes in to awesome choice for everybody. Well done!–Jakob Owoc
