Complete Slav II - Konstantin Sakaev
Paperback, 336 pages
The second part of the Complete Slav contains all systems that were not presented In the first part, namely a popular variation 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 dxc4 and also all systems after 4...e6. Not to mention the possibilities such as 5. g3 or 5. Qb3, I have presented lines after 5. e3 Nbd7 - for starters Meran (6. Bd3 dxc4 7.Bxc4 b5) and Anti-Meran (6. Qc2 Bd6) lines. Also the variations rising after 5. Bg5 are examined deeply, namely Moscow (5... h6 Bxf6) and Anti-Moscow (5... h6 Bh4) variations as well as Botvinnik system 5... dxc4.
There are plenty of openings books in where not the most important lines are covered - this leads to a creation of plenty unnecessary variations - the book starts to be `wishy-washy��. This is why some lines or other moves are not examined deeply. All of presented variations are analyzed on the same level as those described in the first part of whole elaboration.
The book covers the state of the theory for July 2013.paperback, 333 pages
