CLEARANCE - The Gruenfeld Defense

Product Code: CB0105RB

Alternative Views:


You have in your hands the accumulation of decades of top-level practice of the double-edged Gruenfeld Defense. World renowned Grandmaster  Leonid Shamkovich has created an easy to follow treatise on this timeless and sharp defense.

The Gruenfeld, founded during the hypermodern era in the early 20th century, offers a balanced counterattacking weapon to the solid Queen's Gambit. Black combines temporary occupation of the center with the fianchetto of the King's Bishop to create tense middlegame positions, which, with the slightest misstep by White can turn the advantage quickly. Many World Champions (Botvinik, Smyslov, Fischer, Spassky, Karpov) as well as current powerhouses such as Ivanchuk, Anand, Kamsky, Korchnoi, and Sokolov have successfully employed the Gruenfeld in important encounters.

This book clearly lays out the main lines with plenty of attention given to novelties and likely side paths. A complete chapter is dedicated to the Modern Exchange variation and essential stratagems are revealed.
