Kaufman, Larry: Sabotage the Grünfeld
|Grandmaster Larry Kaufman presents a very effective way for White to disrupt the plans and demolish the position of players on the black side of the popular Grünfeld Defence.|
The repertoire Kaufman recommends leaves Black the unpleasant choice of either facing a well-prepared opponent ready for immediate attack, or ending up in an altogether different opening which is not going to leave him very happy: the Saemisch variation of the Kings Indian.
This aggressive approach, which has sometimes been called the Alekhine Anti-Grünfeld, should appeal to amateurs while being sound enough for elite players to employ. Kaufman clearly lays out the strategic concepts as well as the concrete variations and presents a wealth of new resources for both White and Black.
