The Modern English Volume 1: 1.c4 e5

The Modern English Volume 1: 1.c4 e5
by Kiril Georgiev and Semko Semkov

This book aims to arm White players adequately against Black’s most dangerous answer to 1.c4 – 1…e5. It is written from White’s standpoint, but it should also serve Black players since the authors often discuss several alternatives to the main lines. The focus is on the modern variations 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.e3 and 4.d3. In the last five years they have brought 56% and 58% respectively.
