Dutch Sidelines by Mihail Marin

The Dutch is one Black’s most ambitious replies to 1.d4, as with 1...f5 Black creates asymmetrical play. Then Black’s kingside fianchetto, which defines the Leningrad Dutch, allows pawn-storming play in similar style to the King’s Indian Defence. Mihail Marin is the ideal author to explain both the strategic ideas and the latest theory.

Dutch Sidelines deals with lines where White does not fianchetto his king’s bishop, as well as covering 1...f5 against the English and Reti. The companion volume, Leningrad Dutch, completes Black’s Dutch repertoire.

Mihail Marin is a grandmaster from Romania. His previous books for Quality Chess have established him as one of the world’s finest chess authors.

Praise for the author’s previous work:
“Beautifully written and inspirational” – GM Luke McShane
“A typically lucid and thorough exposition from perhaps the most insightful and reliable chess author writing today.” – GM Jonathan Rowson, New in Chess

Expected Release Autumn 2020

Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-78483-104-2
