The Modern Defence is an important opening that can be played by Black against absolutely any White opening system. It is an ambitious, counterattacking weapon, favoured by dynamic players. White is initially allowed to occupy the centre but Black plans to undermine this structure in the middlegame with well-timed blows from the pieces and pawns. If Black gets it right then the white centre can be dramatically swept away. However, when it goes wrong, Black can be overrun.
First Steps is a new opening series and is ideal for improving players who want simple and straightforward explanations. First Steps emphasises:
- the basic principles
- the basic strategies
- the key tricks and traps
