In this line:  1. e4 e5 2. f4 ef 3. Nf3 d5 4. ed Nf6 6. Bc4 Nd5 7. o-o Be7  the claim is that Bc4 has been causing Black some problems but I think that the note contains the better move ( .... Be6) and should be considered the main line for Black and that Black is =/+ and White is the one fighting for equality.

But, its just an opinion and in no way detracts from the awesomeness of having the ebook.


Maybe, it's true that ...Be6 avoids having to make queen moves in the opening.

Hii Tony,

Sorry for the silly questions, but what do these playable ebooks look like? is it just like playing through the games some posters include in the threads? or do you download them into other software?




They open up in Chessbase.  Very handy .



Cheers Barnaby.

Not sure I agree 100% with all the line evaluations, but .... that's what chess is all about! 


Any line in particular?

Hi, I've downloaded the ebook. It's great, and micawber's forum contributions are a very welcome addition (I hadn't realized they were already available on the website before - silly me)

I've completely redone the King's Gambit playable CB eBook, and I've added a key and all Micawber's Forum material.
