Book Description


The MSRP of this book is $15.50 There are several fighting defenses that are simply forgotten and are out of fashion simply because... they are unfashionable. One that deserves more attention, particularly in the ranks of amateur and aspiring players, is the Burn Variation(usually Black 0-0-0) of the French. Amos Burn's intention when he began experimenting with 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 dxe4!? a century ago was to find an improved version of the Rubinstein French(3..dxe4). By luring White's bishop at move four to g5, Black was able to force either a retreat at move six or an exchange of minor pieces that eases Black's game. With this analysis, Black has reason to be aggressive.
