Book Description The Modern Defense is characterized by the moves 1..g6 and 2..Bg7. White can start out with 1.e4, then after 1..g6 play 2.d4 or 1.d4 g6 2.e4. If White does not occupt the center, Black continues developing along the paths given. A great attraction of this system is that it is universal, it can be played against any White first move. It is written from both the White and Black sides. Over the last several decades dozens of the world's top GM's(such as Seirawan, Timman, Miles, Christiansen, Hort, Vaganian, Nunn, Ljubojevic, and Tal among others) have adopted this mercurial fighting defense.
