Overview

The King's Indian and the Grunfeld are two of Black's most popular answers to 1 d4; unsurprisingly so given that they were long-time favourites of chess legends Garry Kasparov and, before him, Bobby Fischer. Brimming with complexity and dynamism, these two openings often leave those playing White scratching their heads wondering how to squeeze even the slightest of advantages out of the opening and, just as crucially, how to avoid becoming swamped in a morass of complicated theory.

It's time for White to strike back! In this entertaining book, Timothy Taylor gets to grips with the King's Indian and Grunfeld, providing White with some easy-to-learn and practical weapons which are specially designed to cause Black maximum discomfort.

A careful study of this book will allow the reader to fight the King's Indian and the Grunfeld with renewed confidence. Written by a renowned opening expert, Weapons against two of Black's most popular defences, Ideal for club and tournament players.
