The Diamond Dutch - Victor Moskalenko
The Diamond Dutch by Victor Moskalenko
Strategic Ideas & Powerful Weapons
Paperback, 272 pages
The widely-played Dutch Defence is a sharp choice. Black does not try to preserve a positional balance, but chooses to fight it out. No author is more qualified to explore new ideas in the Dutch than Viktor Moskalenko, a renowned champion of dynamic play. The Diamond Dutch
is not a repertoire book. Moskalenko himself plays this chess opening with both colours and covers the entire spectrum for White as well as Black:
- various Anti-Dutch weapons
- the Stonewall System
- the Classical System
- the Leningrad System.
As Moskalenko thoroughly shakes up the lines of yet another chess opening, he keeps both the strategic principles and the tactical finesses firmly in sight. He presents a host of novelties, daring recommendations, new resources and cunning tricks. As always, he describes his ideas in his inimitable style full of humour and enthusiasm, and illustrates them with plenty of his own games.
