Grandmaster Repertoire 1A - The Catalan by Boris Avrukh

Qty:

Digital Version Available from Forward Chess (read more)

When Boris Avrukh released the first volume of his 1.d4 repertoire in 2008, it revolutionized chess opening books. As GM Michael Adams said: “The high-quality Grandmaster Repertoire series has taken this format to a completely different level.” Or as GM Glenn Flear put it: “This book represents nothing short of a technological advance in chess opening theory.”

Now Avrukh is back with an expanded, updated and revamped 1.d4 repertoire. Volume 1A deals primarily with the Catalan, which is an Avrukh speciality. In GM Simen Agdestein’s words: “It’s in Avrukh has become a standard comment for those trying to understand this opening.”

This volume covers the position after the opening moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3, concentrating on the Catalan which arises after 3...d5, while also dealing with the Bogo-Indian with 3...Bb4†, and Benoni systems after 3...c5.

Boris Avrukh is a grandmaster from Israel. He is an Olympiad gold medallist, former World Youth Champion and analysis partner of World Championship finalists.

"Strong Israeli grandmasters are opening experts. This has become especially true after Boris Avrukh wrote one of the best opening books ever for Quality Chess with 1.d4 for white."

IM Sagar Shah, ChessBase (full article)

"Five recent offerings from Quality Chess confirm that it is the unquestioned leader when it comes to consistently publishing chess books of the highest quality...

Anyone looking to open 1.d4, with the Catalan the heart of their repertoire, will find this book just the thing they need."

IM John Donaldson, Chess Today

“For all chess enthusiasts and fans of the Catalan this book is a must have!”
