The Modern Defense – By GM Damian Lemos
Now take the next step>>
Whether you prefer quiet strategic positions or a wild tactical game, the Modern Defense (1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7) gives you the flexibility to push the game in the direction YOU choose.
To be able to do this — without having to memorize tons of theory — as Black… is a massive advantage!
That’s why top GMs like Aronian and Andreikin have adopted the Modern, winning some spectacular games with it too!
