Which line the autor suggests after 4. f3 c5    5. d5 0-0  6. e4 b5  7. e5?

Sielecky prefers 7.., Ne8 and Sokolov 7.., Nh5

Black has also tried 7.., exd5?!  but i'm not convinced.

Thanks


If you read my post he plays d6 instead of 0-0.
"4 f3 c5 intening  5 d5 d6 6 e4 b5."
0-0 is a sharper option that I think is covered in Dangereus Weapons Nimzo Indian.

Got this book yesterday.
The book is basically dived in three parts.
Part 1 varios 4th moves.
Part 2  4 e3
Part 3 4 Dc2

If anyone is interested  I give some quick lines

4 Qc2 d5 intending to met for example 5 exd5 with Qxd5 and 5  a3 with Bxc3 6 Dxc3 0-0
4 e3 0-0 intending Karpov system
4 f3 c5 intending  5 d5 d6 6 e4 b5.
4 Bg5 c5
4 a3 Bxc3 5 bxc3 Nc6!?
4 Nf3 c5



Which line the autor suggests after 4. f3 c5    5. d5 0-0  6. e4 b5  7. e5?

Sielecky prefers 7.., Ne8 and Sokolov 7.., Nh5

Black has also tried 7.., exd5?!  but i'm not convinced.

Thanks

Nice. Does he cover lines where White plays Bg5 and Nd2?


I have the book at home (not with me now), but I remember he does cover this line you point out.

d4 d5 c4 e6 Nf3 Nf6 Bg5 and then Bb4+, White covers with Nd2 (covering the check with Nc3 would be a normal Ragozin) and then dxc4 by Black. I can check tonight and confirm if was confused, but I think it's correct.

Salut,


I checked the book and there are 8 pages full of analysis in this line  Cool

Against 3.Nf3 - 3...d5 if you want a classical setup, 3...b6 if you really like the hypermodern approach, 3...Bb4 for the lazy player, 3...c5 if you want to attack, loosely speaking. Naturally there's a bit of flexibility within each of these options. For what it's worth, Pert gives a full repertoire from 3...d5 in his recent book 'Playing the Ragozin', which is easy to miss because he uses the 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 move order.

The Nimzo is a great opening! I just find it hard picking something against 3.Nf3 that I like.

One can't blame the author for giving the cleanest equaliser, even with it being drawish in nature. Various past repertoire books offered good ideas for Black to play for a win, though none mention 7...dxc4 8.Bxc4 Bd7 as in Gelfand-Anand - I'm still not sure White has more than the faintest of edges there. The beauty of the Nimzo in a way is how easily you can add new systems based on your opponent, tournament situation and own taste; for instance, I find the 4...0-0 5.Bd3 c5 move order is one players below 2500 struggle a lot with.

I've seen the extended Fianchetto with 6...b6 7.0-0 Ba6 suggested in the past too, although I think there are better options if Black wishes to possess genuine winning chances.

Returning to the book itself - I didn't yet work through that much of it, but I was pretty impressed with the depth of Roiz's analysis of the 7.Qb3 Romanishin. In an ideal world there'd be alternative options for Black depending on the tournament situation, but then the book would be two volumes rather than one, so you can't really complain.

I believe you can avoid the perpetual by playing 11...h6 12 Bh4 Nd7 instead of 11...Nd7.

Unfortunaly there is no  given improvments over whites forced draw line.

"17 Qh4 A quiet draw offer." "19..  kh8 and a draw was agreed in Shirov- Giri Hoogeveen 2014"

I have actually met it myself in many internet blitz games via a Caro Kann move order and many white players played this line even in unrated games.


Thanks! I guess I won't be playing that line as Black then. Maybe I'll try 4.e3 b6 or some other line.

Does the author show any ways for Black to avoid a perpetual in the Karpov system? I've seen some lines where White can draw, if he wants, by playing Bxf6 and checking on g5 and f6 with his queen.

Interesting that he recommends

4 f3 c5
4 a3 Bxc3 5 bxc3 Nc6!?

when they can transpose in case of 4 a3 Bxc3 5 bxc3 c5 6.f3 (as I played as Black last Sunday) Smiley

In general, what do you think about the book? High standards as usual in QC works?

thx !

This is a book I was planning to acquire when it was announced, but lately everybody is playing London systems against me, or systems with no c4 at all. So I think that for the moment with my actual sources (Bologan video series primarily, Gustaffsson video series and Emms Move by Move book) I am ok.


Yeah those are good Nimzo sources. I was wondering, what do you play against 3.Nf3 and what sources do you use?


I play the Ragozin nowadays. With Ramirez DVD as primarily source. I have also the new QC Pert's book, which I am not digested entirely yet. But I think Alejandro Ramirez DVD is enough to play confidently the Ragozin.
