On this new ChessBase video course, FIDE Senior Trainer and IM Andrew Martin gets you ready to play the Barry Attack in your own games. Players under 2200 will benefit the most.barry attack andrew martin

It turns out that after 1 d4 Nf6 2 Nf3 g6 3 Nc3!? d5 4 Bf4 Bg7, White has no less than four dangerous moves, 5 e3, 5 Qd2, 5 Nb5 and 5 h3, all of which are considered here. Your final choice will be a question of taste.

The Barry Attack has developed into a winning weapon, which even world-class Grandmasters use in the modern day. In this ChessBase video course, you are going to find what the Barry is all about.

Not quite a London System and not quite a Veresov. The unusually named ‘Barry Attack‘ lies somewhere between the two.

Yet another challenging queen pawn system that Black has to prepare for. In fact, the ’Barry Attack’ had roots as early as 1922, when Tartakower experimented with what was then an unknown opening, but didn’t really take off until the late 1970’s and 1980’s, when a whole series of strong players such as Niaz Murshed and several English masters started to win game after game with it.
