  • A Practical Black Repertoire with d5, c6: The Slav and Other Defences

    Author: Alexei Kornev

    $19.99
    Publisher: Chess Stars | Release Date: July 8, 2017 | Contents: 306 pages

    The combination of the Slav Defense and the Caro-Kann Defense enables Black to facilitate his defense in the opening and to avoid numerous unpleasant schemes for him. For example, after 1.c4, he can simply play 1…c6, without being afraid of 2.e4. In the above mentioned London System, after the moves 1.d4 d5 2.Bf4 c5 3.e3, Black has the resource 3…cxd4 4.exd4, after which there arises by transposition a variation from the Caro-Kann Defense which is practically harmless for Black.
