Controversial Samisch King's Indian

£5.99

Product description

The Samisch variation is commonly recognized as being the sharpest way of meeting the popular king's Indian Defence, although in its modern use by White, one is just as likely to see positional queenside play as any deadly assault on the black king. In this innovative opening book, Grandmaster Chris War takes a look at its transformation over time. He offers a unique insight into the subtleties of this system and reflects on many of his own experiences, while observing why such modern greats as Karpov, Kasparov and Kramnik have been tempted by the characteristically aggressive 5 fe. If you have had enough of endless pages of daunting variations but want to develop your understanding of a fascinating opening then this is the book for you. It offers useful tips on how to further your preparations as well as invaluable pointers on previously discarded lines that deserve to be revisited.
