Opening Repertoire: The Modern Defence
Opening Repertoire: The Modern Defence Front Cover

The Modern Defense is an opening that will appeal to players 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 the Modern Defense is essential.

Opening Repertoire: The Modern Defence examines all aspects of this highly complex opening. It also provides the reader with well-researched, fresh, and innovative analysis.

Each annotated game has valuable lessons on how to play the Modern Defense and contains instructive commentary on typical middlegame plans. The suggested lines for Black are based around the very latest games and analysis.

  • A complete repertoire for Black in the Modern Defense.
  • A question and answer approach provide an excellent study method.
