Description

The Tarrasch Defence is one of the most ambitious ways to play against 1.d4. Black immediately fights for the center, gets a lot of space and develops his pieces without many problems. Great fighters like Boris Spassky, Paul Keres and Garry Kasparov have played the Tarrasch Defence.

Former Russian Champion It 's Alexey Bezgodov has more than 30 years of experience with the Tarrasch and is one of the world's greatest experts. The Art of the Tarrasch Defence is a deeply researched journey into the positional structures, the key moments in the fight for the initiative, the players and the variations.

Bezgodov has injected his main line, the neglected Kasparov System, with a lot of surprising ideas and presents new ways to handle White's offbeat variations. He also shows that quite a few lines for Black with a bad reputation are actually good. He teaches how the giants of chess have exploited the many dynamic possibilities of the Tarrasch Defence, and he includes plenty of practical exercises.

This is a must-have book for fearless players who wish to surprise their opponents and who like to play aggressively with Black -- but only with a reliable opening with a sound positional foundation.
