I remember a relatively recent repertoire book advocating, among others the "quiet" line with Nf3, Bg5 and e3 vs the KID, but I somehow forgot its title and author. I may have seen it on Amazon... anyone has an idea of its title, author, etc? Thanks!


Varuzhan Akobian has a number of lectures on Youtube singing the praises of this system, as a KID devotee myself and I can only hope his vids go viral.  Wink

Yes I meant the Smyslov Variaton, and perhaps the book is "Build Up Your Chess 3: Mastery" (Yusupov's Chess School)

Although this might certainly be the case, I am not sure, because there are no previews of "e3 Poison" to this day. It was something on the lines of "Beating the Indian Defences" or "Winning with 1.d4"... and then advocating some offbeat, relatively non-aggressive lines.


Your right. Was it a DVD by Pert you were thinking of? The line does ring a bell.

Rudel had an anti indian book out a few years back which involved e3 in some lines (including his anti benoni line) not sure if he used the line you have asked about against the KID (is it the Smyslov variation?)

I think that might be the new quality chess book e3 Poison by Axel Smith?
