The chess opening known as the Tarrasch Defense arises after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 and leads to wildly complex and dynamic play. With deep analysis and countless novelties, Ntirlis and Aagaard have revived the coolest classical opening for use by grandmasters and amateurs in the 21st century.

Jacob Aagaard is a grandmaster and former British Chess Champion, who has won the Guardian, ECF and ChessCafe book of the year awards, as well as many international tournaments. Nikolaos Ntirlis is a chess coach and computer engineer. He is known as a strong analyst who has seconded many grandmasters.
