The fifth volume of the Grandmaster Repertoire – 1.e4 series provides a top-class repertoire against the Alekhine, Scandinavian, Pirc and Modern Defences, plus various offbeat alternatives Black may try. Negi’s latest work continues the winning formula of his previous books: the 1.e4 repertoire is founded on established main lines and turbo-charged with the innovative ideas of a world-class theoretician, making this an essential addition to the library of every ambitious player.
Parimarjan Negi is a former child prodigy who became a Grandmaster at the age of 13. He was Asian Champion in 2012, and played on Board 1 for the Indian team which won bronze medals at the Tromsø 2014 Olympiad.

Reviews of the previous volumes:
“His books on the Sicilian are absolutely fabulous.” GM Simen Agdestein, New in Chess
“It’s so good! It shows everything that you need to produce world-class preparation… Negi’s book is absolutely stunning. My jaw kept dropping at the attacking ideas that Negi exposes… Once again this is a work of the very highest quality.” GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess
“When I review a new book, I review HARD, and I go out of my way to look for holes. This makes it difficult for any author to meet my high expectations, but Negi continues to impress me… Another Negi book, another five stars.” GM David Smerdon
