Winning With the Slav - 2nd hand
Yuri Markov, Boris Schipkov
2nd-hand book in very good condition, but got wet.
Algebraic with figurines.
Why do so many Grandmasters play the Slav? Is it the opening’s resilience? Its counterattacking potential? Or the ease with which all Black’s pieces can find effective postings?
- Features games by such outstanding exponents of the Slav as Jan Timman, Aleksander Beliavsky, Artur Yusupov, Vassily Ivanchuk, Vladimir Kramnik and Viswanathan Anand
- Up-to-date and packed with new ideas
- Covers all the main lines of the Slav
This book, by two leading Siberian masters, explains in detail all the themes behind this uncompromising defence. Their own personal experience with the Slav against top Russian players enables them to prescribe effective remedies to all White’s unusual approaches, and to explain how Black is to find counterchances against the solid main line, in which White gains a pawn centre which, although large, can easily prove to be unwieldy.
The authors both live in Novosibirsk, and have written theoretical articles in many publications, including the New in Chess Yearbooks.
