http://www.qualitychess.co.uk/ebooks/Playing1d4d5-excerpt.pdf

One can't discern everything from a sample, but it looks good to me so far. I am curious to see the recommendation against 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Bg5 c6 6.e3 Be7 7.Bd3 Nbd7 8.h3!?, which aims to avoid the recommended ...Nh5 plan (I concur it's the most reliable for Black).

I suppose the main questions will be Chapter 2 and 4 - both variations I have quite liked in the past before rejecting for various reasons. Maybe I can be convinced to pick them up again  Wink

Since Ntirlis´ book on 1.e4 e5 also started on move 2 I actually do expect this for this book too.

I also expect this to be written in the same (very good!) style.

What I do not expect is the author to answer such questions here. This is probably reserved for their own blog.

I would not expect this since Quality chess already have a book covering this for all move orders, but interesting if this book has alternatives.
  

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations

On Quality Chess forum I noticed that Nikos Ntirlis is finishing his book on QGD, a Black repertoire.

Nikos, can you please answer following:

– this will be a GM Guide format for Black based on Tartakower and Lasker Orthodox?
– will you cover all lines starting from move 2 (Torre, London etc)
– will you provide 2 lines for readers (one solid and one agressive as Bologan in his recent books on Open Games and Ruy Lopez).

Last, but most important, I'm expecting you dear Nikos to write Playing The Kalashnikov with Tony Rotella and one volume book on Playing The King’s Indian.

This is my dream  Grin Fulfill it  Cool
