The Georgian grandmaster and author offers an opening repertoire starting with 1 d4 d5 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Be7, provoking White into playing an early Nf3 which takes the sting out of certain Exchange Variation lines where the knight travels via e2 to g3 or f4. This mostly leads by transposition into regular QGD lines��all of which are covered in the book. This book is for those who want to build solid foundations in the opening. And we all know how effective this proved to be in the Kasparov-Kramnik match!
