A game as complex as chess can be approached in an infinite number of ways. Nowadays, in the era of computer chess, GMs generally tend to focus their preparation on looking for playable ideas rather than outright refutations. In his second volume of work, Alex Ipatov once again shows his expertise and creative approach in this regard.
"The reader is presented with an abundance of interesting ideas for White which can pose real practical problems for Black. On top of that, Alex provides invaluable insights into his own chess opening psychology and the preparation of a strong Grandmaster. I found it a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable read, and one that I believe enriched my chess knowledge!” - GM Dariusz Swiercz
