The Leningrad Dutch by Vladimir Malaniuk and Petr Marusenko An Active Repertoire against 1.d4,
Paperback, 312 pages
GM Malaniuk has been the main driving force behind the Leningrad
Variation for decades. He has found many original plans which turned
this branch of the Dutch into an active and dangerous weapon. White
cannot enter dull and boring positions even if he insists on this.
Therefore, it is often used when Black wishes
to play for a win, particularly in decisive games. The book also offers a repertoire against 1.c4 and 1.Nf3.
About the Authors GM Malaniuk was a regular participant of the Soviet championships between
1983 and 1991 and three-time Ukrainian champion. He has two Olympic medals with Ukraine.
