The Scotch Gambit by GM Alex Fishbein (Russell Enterprises) is going to be published very soon - if I am not wrong - , which makes me very happy. There is a PDF preview on Amazon, and it looks good to me. Smiley


This does look very very interesting.

I wonder what he intends to recommend against 4.Bc5 5.0-0 d6!?  Huh

The "gambit" continuation with Qb3 and Bxf7 is not considered to be dangerous for black at all..

btw, does anyone know what the so called Von der Lasa variation is exactly ? Never heard about that one before..




As far as I can see Von der Lasa is exactly the line you mention above. Bologan calls it "Berlin Gambit".
Fishbein follows Sali - Strugnell (Baku ol 2016) with 11.Kg2 which was played after Bologan was published and therefore the move is not mentioned there. Fishbein tries to improve this game won by Black at move 12 and also gives an alternative for White at move 10. (Kh1).

I'm not sure however, this will alter the evaluation of the line. Still, Black seems to be fine, although it's quite complicated.

Does Collins talk about this line via transposition in his simple repertoire book?

Could be 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 which von der Lasa recommended in Handbuch 1843.

What??  Surely even the veriest tyro should follow the current grandmaster trend of playing such moves as d3/h3/a3/a4 in the opening  Smiley

I'm reminded of John Watson's view of that book ...

No. That's because of all the transpositions.
5...Nf6 is the Italian.
5...dxc3 6.Nxc3 is the Göring Gambit though even 6.Bxf7+ can arise via this.
5...d6 is the Italian.
5...Qe7 can become both.
4...Nf6 is the Two Knights with 4.d4.
4...d6 and 4...Be7 can become the Hungarian Defense.

Your best bet is Danish Dynamite, but the Italian proper is missing. The most recent ones about the Italian I'm aware of are the Palkovi and Pinski books. The first one isn't very good and the latter hasn't received too many enthusiast reviews either.
You also can consult

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Is there any fairly recent book analyzing in detail the 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Bc4 line? I mean this particular flavor of" Scotch Gambit", especially the line 4...Bc5 5.c3
