Both the Archangel and the closely-related New Archangel (also known as the Meller Variation) see Black boldly challenging White for the initiative. Both lines lead to sharp play, in which both sides have winning chances. This book, the first on these systems, will be invaluable to players of both White and Black.
The first book devoted to these dynamic opening variations Up-to-the-minute coverage of one of Alexei Shirov’s favourite defences
Written by a long-time expert in the Archangel, and a keen practitioner of the New Archangel
