Book DescriptionThe Leningrad Dutch is a thoroughly modern hybrid, combining elements of the King's Indian Defense (pawns on d6 and g6) and the standard Dutch Defense (pawn on f5). Black seeks a tense, asymmetrical opening struggle with opportunities to play for more than simple equality.

Practitioners of the Leningrad Dutch include many top players, notably Grandmasters Chernin, Gurevich and Malaniuk. Their repeated success with this fighting, anti- 1.d4 system bears ample testimony to the Leningrad's theoretical and practical value.

This book arms the reader with a dynamic counter to White's 1. d4 and includes up-to-date game references along with fresh analysis and numerous original suggestions. Many 1.d4 players have a secret dread for the Leningrad Dutch and rightly so! Discover why increasing numbers of serious players are turning to the Leningrad Dutch in answer to White's solid 1. d4. No longer simply a surprise weapon; the Leningrad now appears regularly in every class of play. Here is all you need to play this exciting and uncompromising defense.

However, in the 1980s, dynamic new approaches were introduced by such players as Sergei Dolmatov, Evgeny Bareev, Mikhail Gurevich and especially Vladimir Malaniuk that changed the way people thought about the Leningrad Dutch. These players showed how an active approach could compensate for these defects, and offer Black excellent winning chances.

    The Dutch Leningrad (1. d4 f5 2. g3 Nf6 3. Bg2 g6) is one of Black's most dynamic responses to the queen's pawn opening. From the first move, Black stakes a strong claim on the kingside, laying the groundwork for a potential attack on the white king. The Leningrad variation is a popular choice at club and tournament level as well as amongst grandmasters; it is a regular feature in the repertoires of Vassily Ivanchuk, Veselin Topalov and Mikhail Gurevich.
