Alexey Dreev offers a new look at the old system 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 Bb5 Nge7 which is one of the most challenging ways to combat the Spanish.

At the beginning of the 21st century this system was given a new impulse and its popularity increased considerably. This was connected with the new and interesting idea that Black could give up the centre, reaching complicated positions with mutual chances.

Nowadays this variation is played by famous grandmsters like Levon Aronian, Sergey Karjakin, Vadim Zvjaginsev, Ivan Sokolov and many others.

This is an eye-opening book by a very strong Grandmaster and accomplished author on a variation that, so far, has not been investigated thoroughly.
