In reply to the original question,

I don't know why we need entire books on certain opening variations when a good article or two is more than sufficient.  Chessbase database (or almost any other comprehensive chess database) can fill in the gaps.  All you would need to do to keep it current is download the games for chesscenter.com (the week in chess site).

Viking, you beat me to the punch!

Russian has what's called an "aspirated h" sound.  They don't really have an "h", but the "X" ABEPbaX is a "Kha" sound.  You make it by bringing the back of your tongue to the roof of your mouth as if you're about to say "Ka", but you don't move your larynx. If you do it well, I would say, XOPOWO!

Note that the russian names, written in cyrrilic alphabeth, is often differently translated to various languages. The french uses different rules when spelling russian names, than the english do.

=> the only "correct" spelling is the cyrrilic way. Smiley

This could get confusing!

1) Averbakh's line in the King's Indian is 1 d4 Nf6  2 c4 g6 3 Nc3 Bg7 4 e4 d6 5 Be2 0-0 6 Bg5. There is a fine little book on it by Icelandic GM Margeir Petursson (Cadogan 1996). Obviously things have moved on, but this is still the best book for anyone who wants to start playing this interesting and flexible line for White.

2) Averbakh's line against the Modern Defence is 1 e4 g6 2 d4 Bg7 3 c4 d6 4 Nc3, resolutely ignoring Black's flexible "Modern" move order and assuming that Black has nothing better than 4...Nf6. K&B stated that it was "named in recognition of A's victories with it in the 1958 USSR Ch and at Hastings 1959-60". As well as the books mentioned by John, two other good sources are The Ultimate Pirc pp 272-293(Batsford 1998 ) and the new book Tiger's Modern pp 191-209 (Quality Chess 2005).

Both these lines are named after the Russian GM Yuri Lvovich Averbakh (born 1922). He is probably best known for his endgame books but his collection "Averbakh's Selected Games" (Cadogan) is interesting and instructive.

NB It's Averbakh, not Averbach (or Awerbach).

Keene and Botterill's old classic Modern Defence does. And I think Speelman/Macdonald's Everyman Modern Defence book also, more relevantly to the modern day.

I already began a thread on Averbach System
1 d4 d6 2 e4 g6 3 c4 Bg7 4 Nc3
That I placed in this forum : on 4...Nf6 one gets a regular
KID
But all books on KID bypass it , saying it's Modern Defence , and books on Pirc/Modern ( included the ChessBase CD-ROM ) do the same , saying it's aKID
Is there a book that covers this interesting opening?
The topic on Averbach System was accepted in this section ,so I post here again
