Description

The Catalan Opening (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.g3 Nf6 4.Bg2) has experienced a resurgence in popularity with both Kramnik and Carlsen taking up the opening and achieving excellent positions and results.

 

With play on both sides being influenced more by strategic considerations than concrete variations, an understanding of the key themes will reward you with points over the board and an advancement of your chess knowledge.

 

GM Axel Delorme, a Catalan devotee, reveals the mysteries behind the opening with detailed analysis of games from the highest level including those of seven classical World Champions.
