Dutch Leningrad - McDonald
About the Dutch Leningrad - McDonald
Through the use of model games for both sides, the author provides a thorough grounding in the key ideas, so that readers can quickly start to use the Dutch Leningrad in their own games. The Dutch Leningrad (1.d4 f5 2.g3 Nf6 3. Bg2 g6) is one of Black's most dynamic responses to the queen's pawn opening. From the first move Black stakes a strong claim on the kingside, laying the groundwork for a potential attack on the white king. The Leningrad variation is a popular choice at club and tournament level as well as among grandmasters; it is a regular feature in the repertoires of Vassily Kvanchuk, Veselin Topalov and Mikhail Gurevich.
