Many chess players act intimidated and overly cautious when they have the Black pieces. They are so preoccupied with White’s advantage of the first move, that their predominant urge is to safeguard their position.
In Black is Back!, the Hungarian grandmaster Andras Adorjan continues his crusade against this negative mindset. He shows that White’s advantage is far from obvious and that winning with Black starts with having the right attitude.
Adorjan presents a wealth of Black wins from his own long career and from great players he has worked with. He shows that with creative play Black can often turn the tables. Surprising statistics and instructive examples from modern-day chess will encourage even the most defensively minded players to look for hidden opportunities.
