    Book Description

    Many players find that facing the ultra-solid Slav is like banging your head against a brick wall. This book, from an experienced author and strong grandmaster provides a solution. Based around the moves: 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4, Delchev provides original analysis, his own as well as computer generated, and up to date game references from 2011. The repertoire covers both 2...c6 and 2...e6 as well as the independent tries 2...dc and 2...d4.

    The book is divided into 8 sections, each of which is subdivided into a main ideas section, a step-by step theory section and finally some complete illustrative games. There is one section on each of 2...dc and 2...d4, before 4 chapters on the various Slav and Semi-Slav structures and 2 on an anti-Queen's Gambit Declined approach. In short this provides:

    • A tried and tested repertoire against some of the most common and most solid black lines, presented by an established GM author
    • An emphasis on understanding the themes and key ideas rather than a maze of complex variations
    • Up to date game references and analysis that will stand the test of time
