    Book DescriptionThe Grunfeld is an energetic and popular defense to queen's pawn openings and is a favorite of the world number one Garry Kasparov. From the start of the game Black allows White to build an apparently strong centre but then attacks it with all his forces. Play can become extremely sharp and theoretical and this opening very much appeals to dynamic players.

    In this book, International Master Jacob Aagaard revisits the fundamental principles of the Grunfeld and its numerous variations. Throughout the book there are an abundance of notes, tips and warnings to guide the improving player, while important strategies, ideas and tactics for both sides are clearly illustrated.

    * User-friendly design to help readers absorb ideas
    * Concentrates on the fundamental principles of the openings
    * Ideal for the improving player

    Jacob Aagaard is a young International Master from Denmark who has earned himself a deserved reputation as an industrious and no-nonsense chess author.

      Detailed Coverage of this Kasparov Favourite
      The Grunfeld is an exciting and dynamic answer to 1. d4, and has become very popular at all levels of chess. A major reason for this is that it has been a long-time favorite of the World's strongest-ever chess player, Garry Kasparov, who used it many times in his numerous World Championship battles. The Grunfeld very much relies on the principles of the hyper-modern school of chess: Black allows White to erect an impressive-looking center on the assumption that in the long run it could prove to be more of a liability than an asset.
