The Queen's Indian remains as popular as ever and 4 g3 is White's most common counter. Modern masters recognize the need to set new problems for the opponent and so, because the theory of 4...Ba6 is growing, Black is looking for other avenues. This 60 minutes concentrates on the classical 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 b6 4 g3 Bb7!, but with a new twist! In the main line Black will play a waiting game after 5 Bg2 Be7 6 0-0 0-0 7 Nc3 Na6!? DIAGRAM. This flexible response is a particular favourite of Sergei Tiviakov and more and more masters are beginning to appreciate the virtues of this system. Black waits,constructively and is ready to respond as appropriate to any White idea. Let FIDE Senior Trainer and IM Andrew Martin introduce you to the Tiviakov method, where he covers all of 8 b3, 8 Re1,8 Bf4,8 Bg5, 8 a3, 8 Qa4 and 8 d5 and all in around an hour!
