5)  Raja Panjwani - The Hyper Accelerated Dragon, a full repertoire for Black : 02.2017.

You can see that it is projected for February.


Yes, we shouldn't have to wait long now.
From the link I posted, " He covers all of White's main variations and sidelines, where even the most famous Maroczy Bind gets a ferocious new treatment.:

I didn't know the Maroczy Bind could get a ferocious treatment so I'm eager to see what he has in mind.


So how does this new ferocious treatment go?

I received the book today, and at first glance it seems very interesting, with lots of novel ideas. It's packed with variations, but unfortunately there is no index.


Judging from the intro it might be so called "labour of love". Is it correct?

It certainly looks like it is! There are also lots of verbal comments and explanations. Not only about the moves themselves, but also in a larger context.

I will buy it eventually, but maybe not right away.

In Holland it's already out for a few days. And yes, I am impatient! Wink

I am so impatient that I ordered the book myself!

I am very curious about this book compared to other / older publications. Any comments? Differences? Pro's and con's?

Thanks for the links - TP site is still not updated.
I'd like the intro to the book and I will buy it.

Thanks for the tip, CarriedbyGg!

Let my try to paste the links. Seems to work if you remove some caps:

https://www.schachversand.de/e/detail/buecher/15291.html

https://www.schachversand.de/DBBilder/leseprob/lopanthad.pdf

I was worried the publisher might be in trouble, but it looks like more books are coming now.  Smiley

Now there is!

The site also says the book will be published in a week or so.

Edit: I am sorry, chesspub won't allow me to post the url for the extract. I cannot attach it also.

It is from schachversand.de, you maybe find it there yourself!

I looked at some position before based on 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4,Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6. The game is kind of complex and forced. It requires a lot of study. Especially after 6.Nxc6 bxc6 7.e5 Ng8 8.Bc4 Bg7 9.Qf3 f5 I believe.

I wondered before if on 1.e4 c5 2.Nfe Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nc6 5.c4 Bg7 6.Nc2 would suffice to avoid complications based on ..Ng4 Qxg4 Nxd4 in the future or for a possible 5.c4 Nf6 6.Nc3 Nxd4 7.Qxd4. I have seen in some anti-cilians that black gets in ...f5 putting pressure on the e4.

On 5.c4 Bg7 6.Be3 Nf6 7.Nc3 Ng4 8.Qxg4 Nxd4 9.Qd1 e5 Andrew Greet's book talks about playing 10.Bd3 0-0 11.0-0 d6 12.a4 a6 13.a5. So I wonder what is the state of this variatoin.

There is no excerpt for The Hyper Accelerated Dragon (Thinkers Publishing) right?

That 9...e5 (which I recall getting some renewed attention in the '90s) had crossed my mind in terms of Black trying to play "ferociously."

The only game I've found where the author faced the Maroczy is this:
