In the third edition I recommend 7 Nf3 Bd6 8 Qa4+ Bd7! BUT: 6 Qa4+ c6!

I haven't checked this, but IIRC Sadler's sacrifice was only after 7 Nf3 Bd6 8 Qa4+ Bd7!? (he played 7. Qa4+ c6 I believe)

Also IIRC 7...Bd6 was an improvement on a game by Miles.

Semko Semkov has published a third edition of his book on the Queen's Gambit Accepted - see www.chess-stars.com for more info.

Hello,

Adams commented on this game in a recent article in Sunday Telegraph. I  was hoping to find a link, but couldn't find one. (This one looks quite useful though http://www.rochadekuppenheim.de/coffee/chess-99/c04.htm).
         Semkov and Sakaev where less enthusiastic about 3...Nc6 in second edition, but don't remember any differences in this particular line.

Bye John S

Sadler's Sacrifice in 3.e4 Nc6 variation

After examining Rizzitano's proposed repertoire against 3.e4 and looking for alternatives I was following Semkov and Sakaevs 3...Nc6, where I remember a game Illescas-Sadler Linares 1995 that black won easily. The Sadler sacrifice is as follows:

1. d4 d4 2. c4 dc4 3.e4 Nc6 4.Be3 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5 6.d5 Na5 and now after

7.Qa4 Bd7 (of course 7...c6 is still an option) with tremendous practical results.

Checking the lines with Fritz 11 I have noticed that, after the further

8.Qa5 a6 (threatening to trap the queen with b6)

9.d6 Bd6 10.Nd5 Ne4 Instead of the given 11.Bc4 Fritz11 proposes 11.0-0-0! which looks pretty good.

For example 11...b5 12.Ne2 Bc6 13.Nec3 looks better for white

Is there any updates in this line? I am following the first edition of QGA, and after reading there is a third would buy it.

Thanks,




P.S.: One of these days I will get around commenting why the 2nd edition of Sakaevs 7.Bc4 against the Grunfeld was not that fantastic, although one must say that the quality of the opening books produced by Chess stars is simply phenomenal!
