Starting Out: The Modern

em_StartingOutTheModern__26535.1431468695.350.250

The Modern Defence is a dynamic, ambitious and universal opening, one that can be used against virtually every system White can play. Black’s provocative strategy is based upon allowing White to construct an imposing pawn centre in the anticipation that a well-timed strike will bring about its downfall. Both sides can play for high rewards: White can hope to succeed with a direct attack or to squash Black with a space advantage, while Black will aim to destroy White’s centre and mop up remains. All in all this can lead to intriguing battles in which one slip by either side is often fatal. In this book, Nigel Davies goes back to basics, introducing the key moves and ideas of the Modern, and taking care to explain the reasoning behind them – something that has often been neglected or taken for granted.
