A Black opening repertoire based on playing 1g6.

The Modern Defence has been popular for decades. However, this defence, there is a system that challenges White right from the getgo. The brainchild of Georgian grandmaster Bukhuti Gurgenidze, Black plays 1...g6 and follows with a timely ...c6 and ...d5. Occasionally classified as part of the CaroKann, it draws battle lines immediately.

The move 1...g6 in general is an aggressive approach, throwing down the gauntlet from the very first move. This is why in some lines, even if the reader finds that the engine assesses a position in Whites favour, one should not be put off.

This book, the first one dedicated to the Modern Gurgenidze in many years, consists of 10 theoretical Chapters and 31 sample games. The author carefully explains how Blacks plans may change depending on Whites move order, when exactly we should play ...c7c6 followed by ...d7d5 (Chapters 15) and when we would be better off with ...d7d6 and ...e7e5 (Chapters 610). You will be treated to Jaans insights on Hippo, Dutch, English, Kings Indian and even 1.b3, all through the eyes of Gurgenidze system. Grandmaster Alex Shabalov in his Foreword.

The Modern Gurgenidze has figured prominently in Jaan Ehlvests repertoire as Black for many years. He now shares his expertise and experience in this provocative defence. If you want to play for a draw, this book is not for you. But if you want to play for the full point, this counterpunching defence may be just what you are looking for.
