Book DescriptionThe Samisch variation is commonly recognized as being the sharpest way of meeting the popular King's Indian Defence, although in its modern use by White, one is just as likely to see positional queenside play as any deadly assault on the black king.

In this innovative opening book, Grandmaster Chris War takes a look at its transformation over time. He offers a unique insight into the subtleties of this system and reflects on many of his own experiences, while observing why greats such as Kasparov, Karpov and Kramnik have been tempted by the charactertistically aggressive 5. f3.

If you have had enough of endless pages of daunting variations but wnat to develop your understanding of a fascinating opening, then this book is for you. It offers useful tips on how to further your preparations as wll as invaliable pointers on previously discarded lines that deserve to be revisited.

Chris Ward is an International Grandmaster and former British Champion. He is also an experienced andpopular chess coach, as well as the other of numerous books.
