I was wondering if there was any more interest in looking at the Furman variation: 1. d4 d5 2. c4 dxc4 3.Nf3 Nf6 4. e3 e6 5. Bc4 c5 6. Qe2 cxd4 7. exd4 Nc6 8. 0-0 Nxd4 9.Nxd4 Qxd4 10.Rd1

and now I'm curious what is recommended for Black, as after something like

10.... Qb6 11.Nc3 Be7 12.Be3 Qa5 13.Bb5+
a)13...Kf8 14.a3 Kg8 (14...a6 15.b4! +/-) +=
b)13...Bd7 14. Bxd7 Nxd7 15.Qf3 +/-

I think White should be satisfied.  11...Be7 is given in Palliser's line (which ends after 12.Be3) and of course there are alternatives.  I was wondering if Inn2 had some continuation in particular for Black that leaves White without compensation?  I've looked at a few lines, and in each case found positions that seemed somewhat favorable for White.

Hello,

The second edition does not consider this new move 9Qe2, and it looks very dangerous for black. In fact was nervous enough with the endgame after 9Re1, with king floating in the centre. The chapter on 7bb3 nb-d7 is quite light, think it is meant as a stop-gap, until the defences in IQP positon after 7bb3 nc6 get sorted out.
  Will also check out what Fritz thinks of this 9Qe2, in the game White was considerablely higher rated, so it might turn out things are not so bad for black as looks at first sight.

Bye John S

To IM Semkov;

The recent game:


Dautov,R (2609) - Mista,A (2497) [D27]
6th EICC Warsaw POL (6), 23.06.2005

1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 e6 5.Bxc4 c5 6.0-0 a6 7.Bb3 Nbd7 8.e4 Nxe4 9.Qe2 Nd6 10.d5 e5 11.Nxe5 Be7 12.Nxd7 Qxd7 13.Nc3 b5 14.Bg5 f6 15.Bf4 0-0 16.Rfe1 Rf7 17.a4 c4 18.Bc2 Bb7 19.Qe6 Qxe6 20.dxe6 Rff8 21.Rad1 Rfd8 22.Nd5 Bxd5 23.Rxd5 Rab8 24.Red1 Rb6 25.a5 Rc6 26.Be4 c3 27.bxc3 g5 28.Bg3 b4 29.cxb4 Nxe4 30.Rxd8+ Bxd8 31.Rxd8+ Kg7 32.Rd7+ Kg6 33.Rc7 Rxe6 34.f3 Nxg3 35.hxg3 Re2 36.g4 Rb2 37.Rb7 h5 38.gxh5+ Kxh5 39.Kh2 Kg6 40.Rb6 Kf5 41.Kh3 Kg6 42.Kg3 Kf5 43.Kh2 Ke5 44.Kh3 Kf5 45.g3 Rb3 46.g4+ Ke5 47.Kg3 Rb2 48.Rxa6 Rxb4 49.Ra8 Rb1 50.Re8+ Kd6 51.a6 Rg1+ 52.Kf2 Ra1 53.Ra8 Ra2+ 54.Ke3 f5 55.gxf5 Ra3+ 56.Kd2 Kc7 57.f6 1-0

This game shows new move against your 7.Bb3 Nbd7.I'm pretty sure this move 9.Qe2 is more in line with QGA then 9.Re1. Does your QGA 2nd Rev cover this move??

Thanks

Sorry to hear about that, friends. The only advice I can think up is to buy our books while they are still hot on the market. We publish only a few items, but they are quite rich on content.
You can always ask me on me E-mail about some line. I'll answer if there were important improvements in the second edition.
I hate to read completely outdated opening books so when the first edition was sold out, I prefered to spend a couple of months on revising the stuff instead of just reprinting. I hope you are not bitter on me for that!

Yeah, this happened to me too!  This has happened to me before a couple of times, when I would buy a book in German, and then find out a newer edition came out in English.  (I can only pick out simple chess phrases in German.)

it is promising and encouraging to see that the English in the Anti-Meran/Anand books is improved from the first QGA book.  Smiley

The only slightly annoying thing for me was, I recently bought the first QGA not so long ago, and only a couple of weeks later I found out about the 2nd ed.  Undecided

We try to improve the English and according to a recent review in Chess Today of the Anti-Meran, we make a progress. In fact native English-speakers are a minority amongst our customers and we prefer to print as soon as we are ready. Lately we reached about 10 days production time from the end of the creative work to the start of deliveries. For the games collections we do use lately an English editor - Mr. Jean Bigras helped a lot.

The book will reach USA and Europe in about 2 weeks. Of course it can be ordered immediately at our site. There are 24 more pages, a new chapter - on 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dc4 3.Nf3 c5 and everything is updated and refined, but as far as I remember, the corrections in evaluations do not exceed "0.3" - a small plus instead of equality and vice versa. No dramatic discoveries, just more variations to fill some noticeable gaps. More details - at

I thought the first edition was excellent for its chess ideas (the English was pretty bad, to be honest -- you could have used a native English-speaker to help you edit), and I very much look forward to this new one, which I will certainly will purchase.

hi, after looking at some games, it seems that even the "normal-looking" IQP positions after 7. Bb3 cxd4 looks slightly risky for black, as White seems well-organised for a d5 break and kingside attack in several lines.

Maybe there's a good reason why the new Sakaev QGA book recommends 7... Nbd7, and so many QGA players prefer to stick with 7.... b5 ? Undecided

Hello,

The recent bad news for black in the 7Bb3 line seems to be mostly after the immediate 7...b5. This line has always looked positionally suspect. Remember Kasparov being scathing about Piket playing it against him in the BCM '97.  The IQP positons are tricky to handle. At the moment white seems to get better prospects from these from 7Bb3, rather than 7Bd3. Which kinda of makes the latter move pointless. Will have to dig out Baburin's winning pawn structure book to try and get a grip on these things.

Bye John S

Hi, Inn2! Today I took from the printer the second revised edition of the QGA. We deal a lot with 7.Bb3 since it is extremely fashionable an White scores terribly well. Still I think that Black is not so bad in the IQP positions, but I recommend 7...Nbd7 8.e4 Ne4! if you don't mind a nearly equal ending. There is a new analysis of it, compared to the first edition.
3.e4 is probably the nastiest reply for every QGA fan. If you see statistics, Black is not too successful.
7.a4 is the first thing every QGA player learns to face. If he does not feel comfortable with it, he simply does not stay in that camp and changes opening.
The two knights gambit will always be dangerous, but you really need quite a home work for it, and reguarly at that.

Hello,

I was going to say, I think Botvinnik's favourite 7a4 is most dangerous because gives black problems getting white square bishop working. However, looking more closely does, does not solve your move order issue.
   Would say that Kasparov, and other top players, don't try to take on the gambit in the line you are worrying about. So probably the gambit is good for white.
