Steffen Pedersen

224 pages (210 mm by 145 mm). ISBN 1 901983 26 9.

The Semi-Slav has been one of the most topical openings of the last decade, and its most critical variation is the Botvinnik System (5 Bg5 dxc4). Most of today's top grandmasters, including Kasparov, Kramnik and Shirov, have relied on it as Black, White, or both, especially in make-or-break situations. Written by IM Steffen Pedersen who achieved a GM norm at 16 and has written several highly-regarded books.

"This system... is certainly not for the faint-hearted. What I particularly like about the Gambit books are the introductory chapters, which in a few pages explain the typical strategic and tactical ideas" - Alan Sutton, EN PASSANT

"Every suggestion or recommendation has been put under the microscope, been dissected and weighed... I can wholeheartedly recommend it to all you dare-devils out there" - Carsten Hansen, CHESSCAFÉ
