Book DescriptionThere's no doubt that the Dutch Defence is one of Black's most enterprising answers to 1 d4. Black strives to unbalance the position by creating an asymmetrical pawn structure on the very first move, giving himself every opportunity to fight for the initiative from the outset. It's no surprise that the Dutch particularly appeals to ambitious players who relish a complicated battle.

In this book, Neil McDonald tells you everything you need to know in order to play this opening successfully: the correct opening lines to choose; the fundamental ideas for both sides; the traps you can set and pitfalls to avoid; and the move order subtleties that play such an important role in the modern game. McDonald provides the reader with a comprehensive repertoire against 1 d4 based around the dynamic Leningrad Variation. Read this book and play the Dutch with confidence!

    The Dutch Defence is an ambitious and underrated counter to the queen's pawn opening. With his very first move Black creates an asymmetrical pawn structure, thus unbalancing the position from a very early stage and allowing both White and Black players to fight for the initiative. Black also has many options within the Dutch Defence, from the ultra-solid Stonewall formation through to the fluid Classical System and the dynamic Leningrad Variation.
