Sakaev, Konstantin: Complete Slav 2
Τhe second part of the Complete Slav contains all systems that were not presented in the first part, namely a popular variation 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 dxc4 and also all systems after 4…e6. Not to mention the possibilities such as 5. g3 or 5. Qb3, I have presented lines after 5. e3 Nbd7 – for starters Meran (6. Bd3 dxc4 7.Bxc4 b5) and Anti-Meran (6. Qc2 Bd6) lines.
Also the variations rising after 5. Bg5 are examined deeply, namely Moscow (5… h6 Bxf6) and Anti-Moscow (5… h6 Bh4) variations as well as Botvinnik system 5… dxc4. A possibility to cover such a multitude of systems in only one book (it was possible to create even 5 tomes) occurred only because I have tried to shorten the lines almost to the bare minimum.
There are plenty of openings books in where not the most important lines are covered – this leads to a creation of plenty unnecessary variations – the book starts to be ‘wishy-washy’.
