The Fearsome Four Pawns Attack - Jerzy Konikowski & Marek Soszynski
Facing the King's Indian? Take No Prisoners!
Ever fancied playing the most aggressive system imaginable against one of Black's most popular defenses? Suiting the type of player that concerns himself only with full points and thinks 'draw' is a type of poker. The aim of the system is clear; white is claiming as much central space as possible and aims to suffocate black before a powerful central pawn thrust. Uncomfortable for the black player to meet this opening puts the defense back into the King's Indian Defense. An excellent book with thorough research and detailed annotations covering a much neglected variation.

"The Fearsome Four Pawns Attack may not be a necessary purchase for all Kings Indianplayers, but its definitely worth having. And for someone who plays the White side of the Four Pawns it would be risky to do without it."
