About Play the Dutch: An Opening Repertoire for Black based on the Leningrad Variation - McDonald.

There's no doubt that the Dutch Defence is one of Black's most enterprising openings. Black strives to unbalance the position by creating an asymmetrical pawn structure on the very first move, giving himself every opportunity to fight for the initiative from the outset. It's no surprise that the Dutch particularly appeals to ambitious players who relish a complicated battle. In this book, Neil McDonald tells you everything you need to know in order to play this opening successfully: the best lines to choose, the fundamental ideas for both sides, the traps you can set and the pitfalls to avoid, and the move order subtleties which play such an important role in the modern game. McDonald provides a comprehensive repertoire based around the dynamic Leningrad Variation. Read this book and play the Dutch with confidence!

Reviews
  • One stop shopping for those looking for an answer for Black to everything but 1.e4. The author is enthusiastic about Black's chances playing the Dutch in an aggressive fashion as can be seen in the lines he advocates. John Donaldson - jeremysilman.com
  • It's choc-full of great advice, ideas, and hard-hitting games that could quickly make a convert out of even a staunch anti-Dutch Defence mind. Paul Motwani - The Scotsman
  • McDonald is both an experienced author and an expert on the Leningrad. Both of these points come through clearly in this volume. I do need to explain that this book is best suited to players thinking about finding a new defense on the queenside, though some of the material might be new to experienced players.
