Description

International Master Maxim Chetverik has written an in-depth study of one of the most popular choices by white in the Queen’s Indian Defense – the main line with 4.g3, where white fianchettoes his bishop. This line is often seen at top-level chess. 

A key focus of this work is an examination of new lines that have recently appeared in the arsenal of grandmasters. The full range of continuations for both white and black are covered in this textbook, including hybrids with the Bogo-Indian Defense and certain Catalan, Dutch, Benoni and Hedgehog-type set-ups, as well as key themes such as hanging pawns, the isolated queen’s pawn, white’s four versus three ranks advantage, the closed center with the pawn structure being c4-d5-e4 against c5(c7)-d6-e5 and structures with semi-open files, making it an essential and comprehensive guide for players on both sides of the board in this variation.

This book contains 181 full games in this line and several hundred fragments with detailed and original commentary by the author focused throughout on giving a balanced evaluation in what are complicated positions. Many of these games feature the world’s greatest players, including world champions Carlsen, Anand, Kramnik, Kasparov, Karpov, Spassky, Petrosian, Tal, Smyslov, Botvinnik and Alekhine, and other top players including Caruana, Shankland, Nakamura, So, Mamedyarov, Aronian, Grischuk, Ivanchuk, Karjakin, Harikrishna, Adams, Shirov, Gelfand, Topalov, Korchnoi and Timman.
