Славянская защита - самый популярный закрытый дебют наших дней, входящий в репертуар подавляющего большинства гроссмейстеров высокого класса. Шахматист-практик, играющий 1.d4, сталкивается с этим дебютом практически в каждом турнире, черными же применять его можно вообще чуть ли не в каждой второй партии. В течение многих лет я играл самые разные разветвления этого дебюта за оба цвета, анализировал его как самостоятельно, так и в содружестве со многими известными гроссмейстерами. Сейчас я решил дать возможность всем желающим заглянуть в гроссмейстерскую лабораторию и познакомиться с моим профессиональным отношением к тем или иным дебютным разветвлениям. Вторая часть работы включает в себя все системы, не вошедшие в первую. Это популярный вариант Алапина 3.Kf3 Kf6 4.Kc3 dxc4, а также системы, берущие начало после 4...e6. Не забыты такие возможности как 5.g3 и 5.Фb3, а после 5.e3 Kbd7 разбираются главным образом меранский (6.Сd3 dxc4 7.Сxc4 b5) и антимеранский (6.Фc2 Сd6) варианты. Еще одну солидную часть книги занимает продолжение 5.Bg5, делящееся в свою очередь на несколько крупных самостоятельных разделов. Это московский (5...h6 6.Сxf6) и антимосковский (5...h6 6.Сh4) варианты, а также система Ботвинника 5...dxc4. Возможность объединить такое количество систем в одной книге (ее можно было бы сделать пятитомником) появилась благодаря тому, что я старался дерево устаревших с моей точки зрения линий сократить до умеренного количества, оставляя лишь то, что действительно полезно знать. В дебютных книгах часто приводятся второсортные продолжения, после которых следует большое количество ссылок на сыгранные таким образом партии. В итоге книга раздувается, а суть оказывается размыта. Я в подобных случаях кратко отмечал, почему данная конкретная линия не заслуживает подробного рассмотрения. Такой подход позволил «объять необъятное» не только без потери качества, но наоборот — под рукой всегда именно то, что необходимо, а найти нужную рекомендацию гораздо проще. Текстовые пояснения к вариантам и ключевым позициям даны не везде, а лишь в тех случаях, где мне это показалось важным и где выводы не слишком очевидны. В остальном использовалась общепринятая символьная система оценок. Книга содержит очень большое количество новинок с прилагающимися анализами, проделанными не менее тщательно, чем в первой части.

Slavic defense is the most popular closed debut of our days, included in the repertoire of the vast majority of high-class grandmasters. Practitioner chess player playing 1.d4 faces this opening in almost every tournament, while Black can use it in almost every second game.
