Beating the Fianchetto Defences - Grivas
About the Beating the Fianchetto Defences - Grivas
Grivas provides a full and detailed repertoire for White against five important openings: the Grunfeld, King's Indian, Benoni, Benko and Modern. In each case he has recommended a line in which he has a wealth of experience, and has played a significant personal role in developing over many years. The recommendations are geared towards posing Black unconventional problems: your opponents will not be able to churn out lengthy memorized variations, but will need to solve problems at the board in positions that are somewhat different in character from those normally reached in these openings.Grivas has also chosen the repertoire so that it forms a seamless whole and will fit alongside an English or Reti move-order in addition to a standard 1 d4 repertoire. This is an unusually deeply researched and creative repertoire book. Grivas reveals many 'secret' ideas and gives abundant strategic guidance on how to handle the middlegame positions that result.
