I just started looking a chess again after a long lay off. I am currently looking at Kornev's 1. d4 repertoire books and I really do like his writing style. So I would certainly be up to buying a Black repertoire book by him. He does not seem the type to take short cuts though, so I can't see him copping out with dubious or unproven lines.

The name "Chebanenko" is also connected with the "Modern Caro-Kann" (1.e4 c6 2.d4 g6), which is also in Kolev's repertoire. Kamsky is also famous for playing the Chebanenko-Slav with early g6-lines, and the Caro-Kann with early g6-lines. These lines are quite solid, complex, and without much theory (compared to the mainlines of the Caro-Kann/Chebanenko).

How exactly can play ...a6 in the main line of the Caro-Kann? 3. Sc3/Sd2 a6 seems dubious at the least to me.

I think that the point would be to recommend the Caro-Kann regular lines with the Chebanenko because they are both light square defences and solid.

Bologan did DVD on the Caro-Kann but his line was for ...0-0-0 in the Capablanca. I think Black is fine theoretically here, but I prefer to play the sharper ...0-0 line, which is also much more popular.

I've heard that Chebanenko advised some of his pupils to play ...a6 in the Caro-Kann too, vs 3.Nd2/Nc3 - so that could be a connection when recommending both defences in a repertoire...

I look forward to this one. Although not my main defences, I often play Caro-Kann and Chebanenko slav in blitz. I tend to like the Chess stars books quite much and Kornev is a good author.

Bologan has made CB DVDs on the Caro and Chebanenko. Not bad ones. I expect the book to be more thorough and possibly suggest other lines though.

It would also be interesting to see Reti/anti-slav lines in the book.
  

Don't check me with no lightweight stuff.

The question is how many pages, distribution between 1. d4 and 1. e4, and for the Caro, is it Capablanca Variation, and if so, is it ...0-0 or ...0-0-0 (hoping for the first). Advance I expect 3...Lf5.

Maybe one work, but two volumes. Who knows...?

So it is a double repertoire book like the Karpow book from 2001? They just released a Caro book though, on 3. e5 but for White.


That's what we're led to believe. I am a bit pessimistic about how good the coverage will be, as the Caro-Kann and Chebanenko Slav have become quite theoretical over recent years. Taking into account Chess Stars books rarely break the 400pg barrier leads me to believe that this may be a superficial repertoire. I would rather they did a book for each system and give both defences the coverage they deserve. I hope to be proved wrong though, I will buy the book regardless.

Chess Stars future books pg has been updated to show a Black repertoire book by Kornev. I think this must be the Caro-Kann/Chebanenko Slav repertoire book Semkov was talking about. I wonder if they'll also give replies to 1.Nf3/1.c4 and d4 sidelines.

I can't see anything on the Chess stars web site, just mention of a Dreev book "Attacking the Caro Kann".

There is Houska (2007), Schandorff (2010), and Houska is due for soon (2015) as the only Black repertoire books for the Caro-Kann, especially on short castles. Not very many.
