Double Fianchetto Domination
You surely can’t memorize everything.
In Double Fianchetto Domination, GM Damian Lemos offers a refreshing break from rote-memorization, with a unique ideas-based opening system, favored by the likes of Vladimir Kramnik, Lev Aronian, and much other elite GMs.
This is your complete repertoire for White based on powerfully fianchettoing both bishops and then, regardless of how black response, using GM Lemos’ reliable strategy for gaining an advantage and playing for a win.
Armed with this system, you have a reliable, non-theoretical opening that’s simple enough to learn in a weekend, yet powerful enough to crush grandmasters.
By studying GM Lemos’ cutting-edge system:
- You’ll learn Wei Yi’s wild approach which hands you a tricky tactical option to keep up your sleeve (keep this ready for “boring” guys who try to swap all the pieces for a draw, or for that critical round when you must win the game!)
- Discover a cutting-edge technique to transform a barely noticeable central advantage, within a few moves, into a raging pawn storm for tearing open his king position (watch with amusement as black fumbles for a desperate resistance, only to lose anyway!)
- Learn 2 psychological hacks that “read” his playing style, then sneakily switch paths and crush him in his weak spot (for “safety-first” players, you’ll force them into messy, uncomfortable positions, while tactical players can be “put to sleep” with GM Gelfand’s solid approach which pinpoints their positional shortcomings.)
- A brilliant move-order trick that sidesteps attempts at swapping your fianchetto bishop (a crude, but common attack you’ll encounter), leaving black aimless and vulnerable.
- And this is just a beginning…
- Why big pawn centers are great targets. GM Lemos reveals how to make your opponent’s position crumble.
- The 2 pawn moves that paralyzed Anish Giri’s “hedgehog” setup giving GM Granda Zuniga a smooth path to victory.
- Which pieces to exchange (and how) so that black simply runs out of decent squares! This is a very subtle strategy that will work with ease against 99% of club players!
- The secret of “dark-square domination” – THE most powerful plan if black fianchettoes on the kingside.
