I think what I like about Marin is his obvious respect for chess history and for chess as an intellectual discipline. Sadly that increaasingly makes him a dinosaur, of course, but it does mean I can enjoy reading his books.

I emailed Chessbase recently pointing out in passing a grammatical error ('recuperating material': drives me mad) in one of his articles, and was surprised to receive a charming note from him thanking me for it. Most humbling, when you consider what my Romanian is like, not to mention the chap's sheer good manners.

That pdf excerpt confirms why Marin is my favorite author.  Something about his writing is just so interesting! I can't wait to get these two books, even though I don't even play 1.e4 e5! I just like an interesting read, oh, and also I'm a chess geek.

Looks like he is putting real effort in making this a very good book.

There are some sample pages now up at Quality Chess at http://www.qualitychessbooks.com/documents/Beating%20the%20Open%20games.pdf

Looks like Marin will be covering both the Two Knights and the Italian complex. I very much like the fact that he will be leaving that choice to the reader. However, some may be disappointed to see that like Daives he reccommends 2....Bc5 against the King's Gambit. But since that has long been my preferred line, I personally don't mind.

In addition he appears to cover the Ruy Lopez exchange variation...interesting.

For those wanting to know publishing dates (or indeed, who can travel to Bonny Scotland for a weekend) this may be of interest:

Great! Playing 1 ... e5 is supposed to be a great way to improve your tactics.

And speaking of tactics in 1 ... e5 games, make sure you examine this game from Aeroflot yesterday:

[Date "2007.02.18"]
[EventDate "2007.02.14"]
[Round "5"]

[White "I Nepomniachtchi"]
[Black "Vallejo Pons,F"]
[ECO "C22"]
[WhiteElo "2587"]
[BlackElo "2679"]
[PlyCount "72"]

1. e4 e5 2. d4 exd4 3. Qxd4 Nc6 4. Qe3 Nf6 5. Nc3 Bb4 6. Bd2 O-O 7. O-O-O
Re8 8. Qg3 Nxe4 9. Nxe4 Rxe4 10. Bf4 Qf6 11. Nh3 d6 12. Bd3 Nd4 13. Kb1 Ne2
14. Qf3 Ba3 15. bxa3 Nc3+ 16. Kc1 Nxa2+ 17. Kb1 Nc3+ 18. Kc1 Bxh3 19. Bxe4
Bxg2 20. Qxg2 Qxf4+ 21. Kb2 Nxe4 22. Rd4 Qf6 23. Qxe4 c5 24. Re1 h5 25. Qf4
Qxd4+ 26. Qxd4 cxd4 27. Re7 b6 28. a4 g5 29. Kb3 Kg7 30. Rc7 Re8 31. Rxa7
Re2 32. Rb7 Rxf2 33. Rxb6 Rxh2 34. a5 Re2 35. a6 Re8 36. a7 Ra8 0-1

Tactics galore!

Does anyone have any word yet on whether Marin will be chossing  the Two Knights or the Italian? Er....or perhpas the Hungarian even..... Grin ?


My guess is the Two knight.  Marin used to play the Italian, but then switched to the Two Knights in 2005 with decent success.

Now amazon announces TWO books in 2007 by Marin about Open Games:

a) Beating the Open Games (january07)
b) A Spanish Repertoire for Black (april07)

The second is obviously about the Chigorin defense (as the cover indicates).
Either a is replaced by b (and Marin has decided to concentrate on Ruy Lopez)
or he really offers two volumes for Black (as he has too much material for one)

I'm frankly more interested in his response to the King's gambit. Although I'm curious too if he goes over (?) maybe two different systems against 3.Bc4 given that by writing a separate volume on the Spanish he gets more room to please both Giuoco and Two Knights players.

Kaufman's choice was Bc5. "Chess Advantage In Black And White" was the title of the book.
