English Opening: The Kramnik-Shirov Counterattack (Download)
The Kramnik-Shirov variation of the English Opening is initiated by 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Bb4!, a counter-attack which has hit the headlines following its use by chess superstars Vladimir Kramnik and Alexei Shirov. The critical White response is 3.Nd5 leading to exciting, double-edged positions where home preparation is crucial. GM Conquest charts a path through the complications, suggesting independent plans for Black to adopt should White duck the issue and avoid 3.Nd5.
