I bought Tiger's book on the m

I bought Tiger's book on the modern, but found it too tedious and just wanted the ideas. This video is perfect for that! Tiger knows all the ideas, and the explanation of which lines he chooses and why are priceless. For me, the first section on the Austrian attack was the most valuable, ironically for white since I play e4. He shows the lines he fears most, and the most dangerous way to attack. Now I play the austrian attack against the modern and use the modern as a surprise weapon with black. This opening system is perfect for new players that want to play a simple system every time, because you can play g7 and then fianchetto your bishop on g6 against most white openings.



In 2004, Tiger Hillarp Persson published one of the most influential opening books of our times – Tiger’s Modern. Tiger’s book on his version of the Modern Defence was praised throughout the chess world for providing a complete repertoire for 1…g6 against all opening moves, particularly 1.e4.

For the first time, Tiger has recorded a course based on the material presented within that modern classic, with new analysis bringing the viewer up to date with the latest theory. Novice and advanced alike will enjoy this accessible and informative course which provides both an introduction and refresher to the theory developed in the original Tiger’s Modern and beyond.

This 5 1/2 hour video course is presented in a new format, with TWO grandmaster presenters; on hand is Simon Williams (aka Ginger GM) to ask the questions relevant to viewers, with the Swedish Grandmaster here to provide you with all the options and answers that the casual or club player could possibly need.

After completing this video course the viewer will feel confident to play this exciting and flexible opening, that is well suited for players who like living on the creative or adventurous side of the board. It is an honor for Ginger GM to produce and share this work with the world.
