Description du produit

Revue de presse

Lakdawala writes in a charming and highly instructive manner Award-winning author --Jeremy Silman

Présentation de l'éditeur

This series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.

The Modern Defence is an ambitious, counter-attacking choice for Black which can be played against all mainline openings. In typical hypermodern style, Black allows White to occupy the centre and then undermines this centre by attacking it with pawns and pieces. In this book, Cyrus Lakdawala examines the key variations of the Modern Defence. He shares his experience and knowledge, presents a repertoire for Black and provides answers to all the key questions..

* Essential guidance and training in the Modern Defence
* Covers the Modern against 1 e4, 1 d4 and 1 c4
* Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study

Il y a fort longtemps j'avais été attiré par la Pirc, mais je l'avais abandonnée du fait de son caractère trop tactique et l'attaque ennuyeuse du Cavalier f6.
La Moderne est un système qui permet aux Noirs de ne présenter aucune cible évidente en retardant au maximum la sortie de ce cavalier. Pour celles et ceux qui connaissent, la pseudo attaque autrichienne est ici dédramatisée.
J'ai particulièrement aimé le système Hippopotame qui se joue lorsque les 2 cavaliers blancs sortent naturellement en c3 et f3 et qui se révèle ici être une arme défensive redoutable.
Cette ouverture est un bon début caméléon pour celles et ceux qui jouent par ailleurs la défense Est-Indienne, ou la Philidor ou la Vielle Indienne.
Seul bémol, comme à son habitude, Cyrus Lakdawala est très pédagogique, mais il se contente de mentionner des parties gagnées ou annulées par les Noirs suite à de mauvais coups blancs sans indiquer ce que les Blancs auraient du jouer. Je contourne cette difficulté en croisant ce livre avec d'autres de la même ouverture et en utilisant une base de données.
Néanmoins, un livre qui m'a permis de varier mon répertoire en complément de ma Française.
Fortement recommandé.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A must have if you play the Modern 15 janvier 2013
Par Yuri Wijting - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This step-by-step guide elaborates on the modern and uses Tiger Hillarp Persson's approach. I have reviewed Tiger's Modern and often wished that he had given a little more of a step by step of the ideas. Cyrus Lakdawala covers how to use the Modern well and in an entertaining fashion. The bonus is that he addresses lines such as the Colle and London which aren't in Tiger's Modern. All in all this book is an excellent complimentary to Tiger's Modern, and those wanting to master the Modern would do well to have this book.

The only thing that stopped me from giving it 5 stars is that I'd have like it to have gone a little more into detail with anti-queen pawn games and those games where White does not follow as he should.

Highly recommended!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Unorthodox thinking, sound analysis, and humor 16 octobre 2013
Par JLS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I like the author's position regarding chess: Do not fall into traditional thinking and analysis, but instead play creative chess. He gives a nice 'step-by-step' analysis of chosen games which deal with different openings you will see from the white side. I like the fact that he does not give those long analysis footnotes, but gets to the main point-both from a strategy point of view as well as tactical. His sense of humor is also a plus. He talks about the drunken king heading down the highway as a king is being driven to the center of the board. He mentions a particular "devious" move which, he says, even Richard Nixon in his worst moment could not have created. You get the point.
The Modern Defense is not for everybody. You have to have a willingness to play a bit constricted and to push g and h pawns in front of your castled king. His premise for black is to never give white any targets. His presentation of the Modern demonstrates how fluid and intuitive the defense can be. At one point he remarks about a position that the Modern Defense is so complex that at times this makes it easy because you rely only on your instinct and intuition. I liked that.
Practically speaking, I have used this book's ideas primarily at club level and on an internet chess site and have had good results with it. I recommend the book for it's simplicity, readability, and unorthodox-yet sound, approach which is often contrary to general chess theory.

Par Brian A. Powell - Publié sur Amazon.com

There aren't many books on the Modern Defense on the market and most are geared to more advanced readers than this book. My feelings here are mixed. IM Lakdawala is an experienced chess coach and has been cranking out these titles at a record clip. He has a lively and engaging style. But I am really concerned about the choice of games and the quality of analysis. A great many games are from rapid play events in San Diego. At least one game is a trouncing of a 15 year old student by Lakdawala. I have repeatedly seen other writers advise lower ranking players to avoid the Modern until some level of mastery is attained. (I have seen the same recommendation regarding the Gruenfeld.) Much as I would like to rate this book higher, I suspect that "The Moder Tiger" by Tiger Hillarp Persson, "The Perfect Pirc-Modern" by Viktor Moskalenko, or the older works "Starting Out: The Modern" by Nigel Davies or "Modern Defence" by Jonathan Speelman and Neil McDonald offer better value for the money.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a good book on this defensive system 29 mars 2013
Par audie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is a good one for learning this defensive system. The author presents the information with a generous amount of humor to keep the student's interest, while also presenting a good amount of information so that the player can use the system with confidence.

The Modern Defense is not one that is for every player's taste, which is fine, as one of the reasons chess is such a grand game is because players of many and various styles can play it well. But if one simply doesn't have the time or inclination to get a handle on something like the Sicilian, the Modern's is a good option.

There's a lot in this book, and I haven't yet learned all there is to learn from it. But I already understand the Modern a lot better than I did beforehand.

I would like to make one layout suggestion for e-book versions, which is what I have. With comments, some of the games and chapters are very long, and with an e-book reader I found that getting to a game in the middle of a long chapter can be tiresome. Since most chapters open with a description of the variations each game will examine, I'd like to suggest that when a game is mentioned in the intro, that it would provide a link to the game. So that if, for example, the chapter introduction says something like "In Game 13, we will look at the Snoopy version of the Garfield variation", perhaps "Game 13" would be a link to the beginning of Game 13. It seems like that would be very helpful.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is what an opening book should be! 7 mars 2013
Par Deep Blue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book to learn the opening due to the opponent i was going to be playing. I have never read any of Mr. Lakdawala's books before, but if this is any indication of how he writes then i'm buying them all.
The book is written for anyone of any level, and has humor neatly imbedded into the instruction. Some opening books are written with so many lines of analysis it becomes tedious, and boring simply because the average chess player will never need to remember that much. This book is written very well, and gets right to the point. It is broken into the main ideas behind how to play the Modern Defense, and what moves should be played, and why. It is not burdened down with hopelessly long lines of play. It gets right to the point!
