King's Indian and Grunfeld: Fianchetto Lines
By calmly fianchettoing his king's bishop in reply to the King's Indian and Grunfeld, White seeks to draw the sting from these dynamic defenses and exert positional pressure throughout the middlegame. By refusing to create a massive pawn-centre, he offers Black no target for counter play. Some of the lines become very sharp, especially if Black makes an all-out attempt to generate counter play ...

Nimzo-Indian Rubinstein, The
The Nimzo-Indian Defence continues to be one of Black's most popular and respected defences to queen's pawn openings and finding an antidote for White has proved to be a difficult task for even the strongest players in the world. One of the most straightforward replies is the Rubinstein Variation (4 e3), in which White ignores Black's 'threats' and instead simply gets on with the process of dev...

Offbeat King's Indian
The King's Indian is one of the most exciting and complex defences that Black can employ against the queen's pawn opening. The main lines of the King's Indian are very sharp and tactical but they are also extremely theoretical in nature--it can be a full time job simply keeping up with the latest developments and fashion.

Petroff Defence
The Petroff Defence is considered as one of Black's most reliable methods of meeting the king's pawn opening. By counterattacking as early as move two, Black avoid the hazards of having to face lines such as the Scotch Opening, the Italian Game and the "Spanish torture" of the Ruy Lopez. An early breach of a central file together with active piece play for both sides characterises the Petroff a...
