Book DescriptionThere's no doubt that the Dutch Defence is one of Black's most enterprising answers to 1 d4. 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 correct opening lines to choose; the fundamental ideas for both sides; the traps you can set and pitfalls to avoid; and the move order subtleties that play such an important role in the modern game. McDonald provides the reader with a comprehensive repertoire against 1 d4 based around the dynamic Leningrad Variation. Read this book and play the Dutch with confidence!

* An essential guide to the Dutch Defence
* A Grandmaster's repertoire for Black against 1 d4
* Packed with new ideas and analysis

  • Starting Out - Dutch Defence
    The Dutch Defence is an ambitious and underrated counter to the queen's pawn opening. With his very first move Black creates an asymmetrical pawn structure, thus unbalancing the position from a very early stage and allowing both White and Black players to fight for the initiative. Black also has many options within the Dutch Defence, from the ultra-solid Stonewall formation through to the fluid Classical System and the dynamic Leningrad Variation.

  • Play the Dutch Defense against 1. c4 and 1. Nf3
    The authors combine their talent to create an excellent work which supplements works on the Leningrad Dutch and fills in the gaps for players wishing to make the fighting modern Dutch their standard defense. Not only does it give coverage to the neglected English-Dutch(against 1.c4) and Reti-Dutch(against 1.Nf3) formations, but it also contains a comprehensive treatment of Black's best lines against the Lisitsin Gambit(1.Nf3 f5 2.e4) and other irregular White openings as well. All lines of the 1..e5 English Opening where Black plays 1..f5 in the first five moves are covered by transposition, Although the writers concentrate on how to play these lines as Black, White's best moves are shown, making this book a must for White.
