Still that is a light concession, as Black (assuming, that White will not play x.d4) will have to lose a tempo with e6-e5. The same is true after 2.g3.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

I emailed IM Donaldson again asking for detail on the changes, specifically about the dutch since d3 has become extremely popular since the publishing of the book and this was the reply:

"There are no major changes in the repertoire. The bulk of new material is in the second half of the book where I cut some corners last time. 1.Nf3 f5 2.d3 is a promising line for White but if you play 1.Nf3 e6 2.c4 f5 Black avoids it."

So, is there some serious planning for this expanded edition, or is it just prophylaxis against a possible update of English books such as Kosten's Dynamic English ?


zoo: Read the earlier posts of the thread. "...very close to going to the printers." Also, listen to Watson's show on chess.fm.

I asked JD a while ago about it:


"Jonathan, a greatly revised edition co-authored with FM Carsten Hansen is due out in a few months. It will be published by Russell Enterprises (Chess Cafe).

John Donaldson"

I haven't seen anything on lists on forthcoming books on Gambit, Everyman or Batsford. Could it be a Quality Chess book?



That's why I was asking. I could not find anything on it anywhere at amazon.com.

I should also add that the book that I have been co-writing with American IM John Donaldson, A Strategic Opening Repertoire for White, is now very close to going to the printers. For those who are familiar with the first edition, it is more along the same vein, a presentation of ideas through complete annotated games. Compared to the first edition, there will be considerably more games, more verbal explanations, more analysis, more game references and more improvements over existing theory, which overall amounts to many more pages of chess. The repertoire suggestions are, generally speaking, the same as in the first edition: the English Opening, Catalan, Réti, lines against the King's Indian, Queen's Indian, Grünfeld Indian and Dutch set-ups. That should be sufficient promotion for now.
