About The Meeting 1.d4 - Aagaard

Are you tired of defending passive or difficult positions with Black? Fed up with having to learn many different defenses to all of White's attacks? Then this book is the answer to your problems! Jacob Aagaard and Esben Lund provide an all-in-one solution to the popular opening move 1.d4 and other White systems that do not involve 1.e4. The lines suggested are based around the Tarrasch Defense (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3. Nc3 c5). They are easy to learn and fun to play while also promising the black player dynamic counterplay. This book is especially useful for players who have neither the time nor inclination to learn reams of the latest opening theory. Throughout this work, the authors delve into the strategies, ideas and tactics for Black, while also showing the possible traps and pitfalls.

  • All possible white openings without 1.e4 are covered
  • Written by a battle-hardened expert
  • Ideal for club and tournament players
  • Jacob Aagaard is a strong International Master from Denmark who has carved out a deserved reputation as a diligent and outspoken chess author. His earlier opening works, such as Dutch Stonewall, have been widely admired for the clarity of their approach.
  • Esben Lund is a young Danish national who is well respected as an opening theorist.
