The landscape on the cover is obviously the Sugar Loaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro.
Octávio Figueira Trompowsky de Almeida  (1897-1984) was a brazilian chess master.
He was born in Rio, lived there most part of his life, became Champion of Brazilia
there in 1939 and died there. Showing the landscape of Rio is a logical choice.

They have cover, release estimate looks 23.08.

Looks like Rook of Gibraltar in the background or something. Not sure what that landscape is  Shocked

Says on website that it comes out on Augusti. However, the contents page is not very detailed. I see 2...e6 3. e4 and White takes knight on 2...d5, 2...c5 and 2...g6. But what comes after that, no idea  Cheesy


Thanks for posting. The book looks interesting. Your right though, not much detail. I like to read the bxn chspters, I play the part stuff, it be a good back up. Also against e6 on move 2 for black, I been thinking of playing e4. I have not found a good line against it. Oh and if f3 is the move against ne4 I hope he gives the gambit lines. Last I hope this will be on forward chess.

I see the contents page has now been changed to 1 d4 Nf6 2 Bg5 Ne4, 3 Bf4 c5, 4 f3 rather than the original 4 e3.


I wonder if Semkov (Chess Stars publisher/editor) still reads here Smiley

What happens on 1...d5 ? Or maybe 2. Ag5 is not considered as good here  Huh

Maybe most who want to avoid 2. c4 play the Accelerator London with 2. Af4 instead.

Some do not like playing London against ...d6 setups--perhaps a combo with 1. d4 d5 2. Af4 and the Trompowsky for 1. d4 Cf6 could be interesting  Cool

In the meantime, I do wonder if there is a typo and it should be 2...Ne4 3.Bf4 c5 4.f3 rather than 4.e3.


4. f3 is possible and can lead to a Blackmar-Diemer type of position after 4. .. Nf6 5. e4. It was a line played by Julian Hodgson in the 1990s.

4 e3 with a slower treatment is the more popular move.

The Tromp can lead to some bizarre positions. Whether the book discusses these or suggests saner alternatives remains to be seen.

Playing Bxf6 is all very well, but when you play it repeatedly, after a while you miss not having a dark squared Bishop particularly against players who know how to use your lack of control to their advantage.


1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 3.Bf4 d5 4.f3 Nf6 5.e4 is indeed the old Hodgson favourite, but there the excerpt is definitely going 4.e3 as in all the other bookss.  But it seems to say also that 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 3.Bf4 c5 4.e3 is played, which would be a rarity, which is why I wonder about the typo.

2.Bg5 would be a deviation for me, so I'm not so worried about sticking with 3.Bxf6. I have Wells old book but some update would be nice.

I'm actually a bit interested in the book now with the choice of Bxf6 whenever possible - I'd use this as a backup simpler weapon so such clear ideas are nice (Pert was aiming for maximum complexity so I didn't like it so much).

In the meantime, I do wonder if there is a typo and it should be 2...Ne4 3.Bf4 c5 4.f3 rather than 4.e3.
