7. Modern Maroczy Bind

7. Modern Maroczy Bind

The Modern Maroczy Bind is an advanced version of the standard Maroczy Bind setup. And just like its predecessor, it will help you against at least 4 different openings.

In the Modern Maroczy Bind Black delays playing Bg7. Instead, they play useful moves like ...Nf6, ...d6, and then capture on d4 with ...Nxd4, forcing White to recapture with Qxd4.  

This little change in move order alters the plans for both sides, which is what we'll cover in this course.

Below are some of the positions from the Modern Maroczy Bind:
