The Tarrasch Defense arises after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3._c3 c5 and leads to wildly complex and dynamic play. With deep analysis and countless novelties, Ntirlis and Aagaard have revived the coolest classical chess opening for use by grandmasters and amateurs in the 21st century.
Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard won the British Championship at his first and only attempt. He has received the Guardian, ECF and ChessCafe Book of the Year awards and the FIDE Senior Trainer title. His training material is used by amateurs and grandmasters alike.
He is an author who has won several awards on both sides of the Atlantic. Most recently, his two Attacking Manual volumes were chosen as Book of the Year by both the English Chess Federation and the Guardian newspaper.
Nikolaos Ntirlis is a chess coach and computer engineer. He is known as a strong analyst who has seconded many grandmasters. Ntirlis is a PhD student in bio-informatics. He has black belts in Okinawa Karate and Ju-Jitsu and won a bronze medal at the European Championship in semi-contact kickboxing.
