The Sniper! A Universal Repertoire for Black (Part 4)
The Sniper is a dynamic and universal chess opening system that fills in the gaps for the Black player who plays the Accelerated Dragon, the Dzindzi-Indian, or other Black Fianchetto defenses. Black's system of development with 1...g6 and 2...Bg7 allows White to occupy the center, but in true Sniper modern style, Black strikes back with an early ...c7-c5! The Sniper can lead to many original or barely touched upon positions in which Black has very good theoretical chances, but even better practical chances as his opponent is on unfamiliar turf. The Sniper is also very rich in potential transpositions into favorable Sicilian, Dzindzi-Indian, King's Indian, or Benko Gambit type positions.
Transpositions to other Openings
Grandmaster Ron W. Henley has spent years playing 1...g6 systems and with the Sniper has now bridged the gap between the Accelerated Dragon and his beloved Dzindzi-Indian. In the Sniper DVDs he will show you how to play and his own personal recommendations against each of White's major third move alternatives, as well as special antidotes to the Maroczy Bind and English Opening.
