|The Rossolimo Attack and the Moscow variation are analysed in the first and the second part of this book and they both satisfy perfectly these criteria. As theoretical material they are not so huge as the Najdorf variation, the Chelyabinsk variation, or the Rauzer attack. On the other hand White’s play is very sound from the positional point of view. He wishes to develop his pieces as quickly as possible. He exchanges in numerous variations his light-squared bishop, which later may turn out to be "bad”, because White’s e4-pawn is placed on a square of the same colour.
In the third part of the book, numerous second moves for Black are analysed, besides 2...Nc6 and 2...d6 and no doubt, the most dangerous move for White is 2...e6. I have suggested as an opening weapon for him the quite modern move in the last several years – 3.g3. You should accept as a proof of its strength the fact that the actual World Champion M.Carlsen plays often like this."
