GM Mihail Marin continues with his 1.c4 English Opening repertoire. He sticks to his guns, with 2.g3 as the answer to all serious Black defenses, playing in the spirit of the true English.

Marin shares his insights on the Reti (1.Nf3) move order. He argues that the best chance for White to preserve the advantage and stay in the realm of the English Opening is with 1.c4. The Botvinnik System he advocates as the antidote to the King's Indian (c4/e4/Nc3/Nge2) is not possible after an early Nf3.

We also get recipes for the Queen's Indian, Dutch, and Anglo-Grunfeld. Plus his handling of e6, c6 and the Triangle, sure to put a smile on the face of Gambiteers when the c4 pawn is given as bait in return for active play.

Marin completes this series with an examination of the Symmetrical English in The English Opening: Volume Three (GM Repertoire 5).
