Well, Donaldson really had next to nothing coverage against anything outside of  2...e6. There was some vauge suggetion of the exchange Slav as a possibility in response to 3...c6. He did mention 3 e3 in respone to 2...dxc4. But again, he presented no real coverage. There was no coverage  of 2...d4 either where White is forced to play a Benoni reversed. Personally, I never liked these reversed Benoni positions - Black gets lots of space and freedom - which is why I prefer 1. Nf3 d5 2. d4 ala Kramnik rather than the Donaldson moveorder.

To his credit Donaldson did acknowledge that the first edition had inadequacies in this area. It remains to be seen if they will be properly addressed in the second edition.

Then what can be the problem with the ...d4 and ...dc Reti ? 1. Nf3, d5 2. d4, no ?


As far as I remember, Donaldson reccommended 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4 in the first edition. Coverage of these lines was scant. Whether this will change in the second edition, we will see.

Am I right to  think it resembles Wojtkiewicz's white repertoire ?


You're right. It's even pointed out by John Donaldson in the latest JW show on chess.fm.

OK ALREADY, I don't see any indication this thing is coming out so what gives?


Both authors have stated on the John Watson book show on chess.fm that it will be out soon. (Hansen also on his section here.) Just last week Hansen said that it will be out in October. I guess that Russell Enterprises just don't tell in advance that a book is about to be released.

On a final note before I move over to this month's games, I can inform you that I have finally started receiving the page proofs for John Donaldson's and my "Strategic Opening Repertoire for White - 2nd Edition"; from here onwards it should be a relatively speedy process before it becomes available in stores.

Nyoke: Yes, it does resemble Wojo's White repertoire. In fact, in the introduction, Donaldson recommends that you study the games of a number of 1 Nf3 players. If memory serves (because I no longer have my copy) they included Wojo, Ribli, Anderssson, Kramnik, Alterman, and several others. Just to get an idea of the repertoire recommended, you could build a database of their 1 Nf3 games and scan it casually. The recommended repertoire response to a KID formation by Black is to play a Closed Sicilian Reversed (i.e. an English 1...e5 in which Black is already committed to Nf6 and g6), as in Andersson's 1980s games. I think that Wojtkiewicz regularly transposed into the KID Fianchetto Variation by playing an early d4.
