Tiger on the Modern

with GM Tiger Hillarp Persson and GM Simon Williams

In 2004, Tiger Hillarp Persson published one of the most influential opening books of our times - Tiger's Modern. Tiger's book on his version of the Modern Defence was praised throughout the chess world for providing a complete repertoire for 1...g6 against all opening moves, particularly 1.e4.

For the first time, Tiger has recorded a DVD based on the material presented within that modern classic, with new analysis bringing the viewer up to date with the latest theory. Novice and advanced alike will enjoy this accessible and informative course which provides both an introduction and refresher to the theory developed in the original Tiger's Modern and beyond.

This 5 1/2 hour video course is presented in a new format, with TWO grandmaster presenters; on hand is Simon Williams (aka Ginger GM) to ask the questions relevant to viewers, with the Swedish Grandmaster here to provide you with all the options and answers that the casual or club player could possibly need.

After completing this video course the viewer will feel confident to play this exciting and flexible opening, that is well suited for players who like living on the creative or adventurous side of the board. It is an honour for Ginger GM to produce and share this work with the world.
