Product Details

In modern chess it is often difficult to be creative in the opening, but in this book Tiger Hillarp Persson shows it can be done. Tiger presents his own favorite line against 1.e4: the Modern Defense with ...a6. With the laid-back approach he brings both to the game of chess and life in general, he covers White's various replies to his system, with a repertoire based on understanding, typical reactions, and interesting games, rather than theory to be memorized. Pieces are sacrificed in a great number of games and famous grandmasters will meet their doom on the pages of this refreshingly lively opening book. Tiger Hillarp Persson is a grandmaster from Sweden who is famous for his original style. As well as being hard to beat, he has defeated players of the highest level. This is his first chess book.

  • "This is the kind of chess book that I value most highly; one in which the author seems to have enjoyed the process of writing, and offers the reader the pleasant experience of direct communication from a thoughtful person. If you are looking to expand your repertoire, and consider yourself one of those 'unreasonable' men upon whom all progress depends, Tiger's Modern is highly recommended." GM Jonathan Rowson, New in Chess

  • "In a clear but highly entertaining writing style, Tiger gives us in-depth plans/rules/ideas that will prove invaluable to the reader... fine explanations, mixed with a seemingly endless cascade of new plans and theoretical novelties...
