Vol. 81 The Lion by Andrew Martin
2 hours 21 minutes
Repertoire for black against 1.e4 and d4
The Black Lionis a flexible, logical and sensible way for Black to meet both of these moves. This opening system looks quiet, like a sleeping lion - hence the name. . The opening moves are easy to learn, Black has a good choice of middle game plans, the positions are easy to understand, and White will often struggle to counter Black's ideas.
