Dangerous weapons: The Pirc and Modern
Do you need to freshen up your opening repertoire? Choose Dangerous Weapons and amaze your opponents with new and exciting opening ideas! In this book, three leading experts take a revolutionary look at two popular and closely related openings: the Pirc and the Modern. Instead of analysing the well-trodden main lines they concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations, selecting a wealth of ‘dangerous’ options for both colours. Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you confident and fully-armed, and your opponents running for cover! Dangerous Weapons is a series of opening books which supply the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire. Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded.
