Product Details

The Queen's Indian is one of Black's most dependable and respected defenses to the queen's pawn opening. It's an established favorite among world-class Grandmasters such as Vladimir Kramnik, Vishy Anand, Michael Adams and Judit Polgar, not to mention Anatoly Karpov, who has been a loyal Queen's Indian supporter and theory developer for over three decades. Using a hyper-modern approach, Black endeavors from the very beginning of the game to control the all-important central squares with pieces rather than using the classical method with pawns. This procedure leads to rich and complex positions that will appeal to aggressive and positional players alike. In this easy-to-read guide, Grandmaster and Queen's Indian expert John Emms goes back to basics, studying the essential principles of the Queen's Indian and its numerous variations. Throughout the book there are an abundance of notes, tips and warnings to guide the improving player, while key strategies, ideas and tactics for both sides are clearly illustrated.

Author John Emms is one of Britian's strongest Grandmasters and has represented England as player and captain in numerous team tournaments. He now has many works to his name, including Attacking with 1.e4 and Play the Najdorf: Scheveningen Style, while he is also a co-author of the very popular openings encyclopedia Nunn's Chess Openings.
