A detailed survey of one of Whites most popular opening systems
By calmly fianchettoing his kings bishop in reply to the Kings Indian and Grünfeld, White seeks to draw the sting from these dynamic defences and exert positional pressure throughout the middlegame. By refusing to create a massive pawn-centre, he offers Black no target for counterplay. Some of the lines become very sharp, especially if Black makes an all-out attempt to generate counterplay and provokes White into hand-to-hand fighting. These lines in particular call for accurate, detailed analysis, and Janjgava provides this in abundance.
