More than 85% of all chess games start with either 1.e4 or 1.d4, and The Black Lion presents a flexible, logical and sensible way for Black to meet both of these moves. This robust, multipurpose opening system looks quiet, like a sleeping lion, but when this predator is provoked, and the game heats up, Black eats its prey in an extremely swift and efficient way. The moves are easy to learn, Black has a good choice of middlegame plans, the positions are fresh and interesting, and White will often struggle to counter Black's ideas.
