In the second part of his two-volume treatise on Bogoljubov’s games, International Master Grigory Bogdanovich provides 191 fully annotated games and fragments as well as 6 endgame compositions and 23 tactical positions for the reader to analyze. As in the first volume, his analysis of Bogoljubov’s games is split into instructive themes, making his treatise a fantastic textbook for learning a huge range of winning techniques. The present volume covers the topics of attack, defense, planning, Bogoljubov’s contribution to opening theory, and endgame technique.
In the openings chapter, there is a special section on how Bogoljubov handled Spanish Exchange, Carlsbad, Stonewall and Pillsbury knight structures. It also includes his contributions to theory in the King’s Gambit, Two Knights, Four Knights, Spanish, French, Queen’s Gambit Cambridge Springs, Slav and Semi-Slav, Zukertort System and Bogo-Indian.
The chapter on Bogoljubov’s endgame technique covers pawn structures, king activity, pawn endings, same-colored and opposite-colored bishop endings, knight endings, rook endings, queen endings, material imbalances and multi-piece endings among others. This book also contains further photos from Bogoljubov’s career.
