"Strategic Ideas & Powerful Weapons"

The Pirc and Modern are flexible openings, rich in strategic and tactical ideas. They feature in the repertoire of great players like Kramnik, Grischuk and Ivanchuk, but are also quite popular at club level.

Moskalenko, a renowned champion of dynamic play, highlights the ideas and plans, offers invaluable insights into transpositions and pawn structures, and reveals numerous novelties and new resources in well-known lines for both Black and White.

In his usual crystal clear style, with a light touch, Moskalenko takes the reader by the hand and shares his own wide experiences and deep analysis in the Pirc-Modern.

Carsten Hansen, ChessCafe, on Viktor Moskalenko’s 'The Flexible French':
“Moskalenko's coverage is excellently balanced (..) Easy to read and understand; even weaker players will benefit from Moskalenko's breakdown of the material.”
