Softback, 176 pages. The book offers a thorough study of an overlooked topic: the Nimzowitsch Variation with 6.d5! The line goes: 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 b6 4 g3 Ba6 5 Qc2 c5 and now, the pawn sacrifice, 6 d5! The ultrasharp pawn sacrifice 6.d5 has caused a revolution in the 4 Ba6 line of the Queens Indian Defence in recent years. The ingenious gambit was hotly debated at the highest level by players like Alexey Shirov, for White, and Peter Leko, for Black. At club level it became a dangerous weapon for attackers.Hungarian grandmaster Imre Hera and Turkish FIDE master Ufuk Tuncer have charted this topical line and analysed it deeply. They give a clear overview of the history of the line and have thoroughly investigated all Blacks answers in separate parts and chapters. The deep and often spectacular variations are illuminated by instructive and entertaining prose.A CuttingEdge Gambit against the Queens Indian aims to provide a repertoire for the white player, but anyone who plays the line with black is also well advised to study this work carefully! It presents countless brilliant resources and eyecatching novelties.
