    The Maroczy Bind is a pawn formation named after the Hungarian Grandmaster Geza Maroczy. It is primarily, but not exclusively, used against the Sicilian Defense. It is characterized by white pawns on c4 and e4, with White's d-pawn having been exchanged for Black's c-pawn.GM Jesse Kraai shows how to use middle game strategy to gain advantage for white. Expert handling of the Maroczy Bind is illustrated with an explanation of the theory, a classic game, and an additional instructive game of his own.ECO: B36, B38

    Members of ChessLecture.com rated this series a 4.43 out of 5 Fans on Chesslecture.com said: This is really scary stuff for the Black side. I started playing 1.Nf3 with a later c4, and several games have gone into Maroczy binds. I definitely need to study this series.
