    In Volume 1 Kornev's choice of arms against 1.d4 d5 2.c4 is one of the most popular openings in modern chess practice - the Slav Defence. Besides, he considers in detail how to meet opening set-ups where after 1.d4 d5 White refrains from an early c2-c4: 2.Bg5, as well as 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Bg5 and 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.g3. Another topic is the ever growing in popularity The London System (2.Bf4 and 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Bf4)

    Bf4 in the Queen's Gambit and the Exchange Slav
    Catalog Code: B0121EU

    Alexey Dreev analyses many different ways for White to fight for the opening advantage in two modern schemes, in the Slav Defense and in the Queen's Gambit Declined. His choice in the Slav Defense is the exchange variation, which is becoming more and more popular among the average level chess players, as well as at top level. It looked like Black could equalize, but lately White often managed to create problems for Black. By playing 3.cxd5, after the moves 1 d4 d5 2.c4 c6, White tries to obtain an advantage, but also avoids the main lines of the Slav Defense, which may arise following 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 dxc4.

    The Semi-Slav
    Catalog Code: B0115QT

    Lars Schandorff’s two volumes on 1.d4 were celebrated by reviewers and grandmasters. GM Simen Agdestein said: “I have recently been reading Lars Schandorff’s Playing 1.d4 books, thinking that it cannot possibly get more instructive than this.” Meanwhile, GM Boris Avrukh’s verdictwas simple: “Lars, I want to play your book.” Now Schandorff switches sides and offers a top-class Semi-Slav repertoire against 1.d4. TheSemi-Slav strikes the perfect balance of ambition and soundness, which has made it popular at every level up to and including the world championship. Black needs to know his stuff, but Schandorff is the ideal guide to make the learning process a pleasure.

    Catalog Code: B0052EU

    The positions arising in the Moscow variation and the Anti-Moscow variation are in principle so different that I have decided to arrange the material in the two parts of the book in different fashion too. The part of the book, which deals with the analysis of the plans and possibilities in the much calmer Moscow variation can be compared to a thorough guide of the series ''street by street''.

Put simply, the Slav is a classy opening, one which combines reliability with the promise of dynamic counterplay. In this book, James Vigus presents a comprehensive and trustworthy repertoire for Black.
