Tiger's Modern - free download book
I should start with a warning for those of you who have only played classical openings before. The Modern Defence (henceforth referred to as simply the Modern) is something quite different. Even though I have tried to give a few examples of typical positions and structures to strive for, that is far from doing the Modern justice. The Modern is just coo complicated and dynamic; what is good in one instance can very well be bad in another. One grandmaster, on hearing I was trying to explain the a6-Modern systems in book form, said: "You will have to explain everything!" and there is some truth to that. Still, I think that is what makes the opening so wonderful.
