Israeli Grandmaster Boris Avrukh presents the first volume in his series on the Grunfeld Defence. In the same spirit as his highly acclaimed White repertoire series on 1.d4, here Avrukh turns the tables, and gives Black a powerful and high level play book to take to the highest level of competition.

In this volume he examines the Fianchetto variation, the Russian variation with 4.Nf3 and 5.Qb3, Bf4 lines, Bg5 lines, and all of White's minor tries. The second volume tackles the Exchange Variation.

This is a serious work for industrious players who are willing to do the work required to play these critical mainstream lines. They are rewarded with thorough analysis, and countless novelties, which has led to the coinage of the term to Avrukh. "To have been Avrukhed" is when you get ambushed by one of Boris Avrukh's ingenious ideas.

The second volume deals with the critical Exchange Variation.
