The Bogo-Indian (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+) stands out for two reasons: the concept behind the opening is simple and therefore easy to learn; and the Bogo-Indian has the reputation of being a reliable drawing weapon (statistically backed up by a high number of draws with it). This makes it an excellent second choice opening and it is on occasion used as such even by many world class players.
Schipkov explains in 21 texts the ideas behind the Bogo-Indian Defence and provides links to the most important model games. Our author has annotated some 400 of these exclusively for this CD. In addition it contains a training database with 20 games in it, which contain between them more than 250 training questions. The CD is rounded off with a tree of all the 17,500 games.
Contents of the CD:
There are altogether 21 chapters (Introduction, Basic Strategic Ideas, 18 chapters covering all the main variations of the Bogo-Indian Defence E11, Conclusion), 392 model and essential games with my notes, 20 training games with questions plus a tree of variations.
