Meeting 1.d4 (Download)
Unhappy that you're reaching passive or difficult positions with the Black chess pieces? Fed up with having to learn many different defenses to all of White's attacks? Then this book is the answer to your problems! International Master Jacob Aagaard and Esben Lund provide an all-in-one solution to the popular opening move 1.d4 and other White systems that do not involve 1.e4. The lines suggested are based around the Tarrasch Defense (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5) and are easy to learn, fun to play and promise Black dynamic counterplay. This book is especially useful for players who have neither the time nor inclination to learn reams of the latest opening theory. Throughout this work, Aagaard & Lund delve into the chess strategies, ideas and tactics for Black, while also showing the possible traps and pitfalls.
