    Book DescriptionYugoslav Grandmaster Svetozar Gligoric is firmly established as one of the great pioneers of the King's Indian strategy and tactics. The variation he introduced in a tournament at Mar del Plata, Argentina, fifty years ago, is characterised by fierce attacks by the opposing sides - White on the queenside and Black on the castled king - making for exciting games and many dashing Black wins.

    This book contains not only up-to-date theory and illustrative games, but also the author's own fascinating narrative on the evolution, development and survival of his counterattacking system, which has stood the test of time and remained popular at grandmaster and club level.

    • King's Indian Defense: Yugoslav Variation 6 ...c5
      There is no reason that the variation 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.Nf3 d6 6.0-0 c5 fell out of fashion. Soltis proves this by giving you excellent analysis and strategy in this variation. He brings back a 1950's variation to surprise your opponents. This system has a bit of a Benoni feel to it by attacking white's center with 6..c5 instead of 6..e5. This should be called the Gligoric system since it was the veteran GM Svetozar Gligoric who first demonstrated Black's resources most successfully. This system is a dangerous surprise weapon in the King's Indian that can be employed at all levels.
