what is Demuth suggesting against 1...d6 and 1...g6 ?

Against 1...d6 he plays 2.d4 and against 1...g6 2.e4.

He really doesn't cover 1....d6, and there are chapters about anti King's Indian and anti Grunfeld sequences, he recommends a queenside fianchetto against the King's Indian. He pretty well just recommends a standard sort of approach to counter the Grunfeld, though I haven't really gone through those chapters in detail.

I have the book also if anyone has questions that I can answer. I think it is a good source, lots of text and Demuth seems pretty objective.

Roumain is clearly on a level above mine (20xx Elo), but interesting because of the critical attitude to his own games. This teaches a lot imo. In short - something for serious work.

I have ordered it and will receive it this week. Will gladly give some info in a couple of days. Simultaneously ordered Roumain's 2 books on calculation. Does anyone have an opinion on them?

Surprised he didn't just plump for the Reti set-up against the Grunfeld too, since you can reach the same positions via the Slav move order.

Let me guess: Yet another book that goes for 1.Nf3 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. b4...??

Nope!


I'm also interested in what the book recommends against 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 d4. Personally I've never seen anything I'd like to play against that and it's been recommended recently in books from both QC and Chess Stars. If there was an interesting option there for White I'd seriously consider playing the Reti with more regularity.

Demuth advocates 3.b4 f6 4.e3 e5 5.c5 a5 6.Qa4+.

Do tell!

Against the KID he plays 3.b3!? and a later g3 and d4. He has a second "option" because against the GID he plays 3.Nc3 d5 4.cxd5 Nxd5 5.Qb3. So in case of 3...Bg7 there follows 4.e4 d6 5.d4 0-0 and "you can now choose your own system against the KID"...

I will wait for the release on Forward Chess.

At least then I don´t have to look at this cover on my shelf... Grin

Instead of criticizing the cover: does anybody have the book yet? Comments?

That has got to be the most hideous cover that ever soiled my eyes. I feel like I'm in a hospital or a prison just looking at the colors. And what is that hanging down from h2?!
