    Book Description

    The King's Indian and Benoni defenses may look similar, but they lead to vastly different strategies for each player. Why does White usually attack on the queenside in the King's Indian but on the kingside in the Benoni, while Black does the opposite? Do you know when and where to launch your pawns forward, and when to rely on piece play? Can you stop your opponent from blocking up the position? Are you mystified by the subtle differences that totally change the game?

    In Winning Pawn Play in the Indian Defenses, Henrique Marinho provides the guideposts that you need to make your way through the forest of strategies and variations in these popular modern openings. Aron Nimzowitsch's neglected idea of the "qualitative pawn majority" serves as the basic compass in the author's systematic exploration of the plans available to both White and Black, showing how typical Indian pawn formations suggest each player's strategic opportunities.
