I look forward to seeing if Marin has found an effective counter to 10. Qd2.

He has certainly put a lot of work into this, I have just been through his analysis on a board and it seems quite good - he proposes playing a line where Black has two knights for two bishops, but where the light-squared one is shut out of the game.

an additional chapter (Bishop's Opening)

Correction, there are two additional chapters as there is the Belgrade Gambit as well. I was a bit thrown by the 'original' numbering system which has two chapter 7s and two chapter 8s!! Roll Eyes

The 2nd edition just arrived through the post (from Poland!) and has an extra 40+ pages, and an additional chapter (Bishop's Opening). I have only had time to quickly look at the King's Gambit so far, it is the same up to page 28 when there is an additional 4 page discussion of 10 Qd2, and an extra line is added to the ECO-style lines. Smiley I will check his analysis over the next day or two.

I've been promised a review copy, must be my reward for being so complimentary to the first copy! Undecided


Considering that this forum was the "Minority Report" when it came to reviews on the first edition, i can see Aagaard wanting to be a little nice to you  Cheesy

This is good and bad news !!

Good that we will have an updated copy of the excellent book.

bad is, I have just bought the old one. They should have informed us that this is coming !


You will get the updates in a PDF file. What more can you ask?



PDF files are worth exactly what they cost.  My computer would be safer engaging in unprotected bathhouse gloryhole downloading than dealing with more pdf files.  





Edited 1X to add: My computer crashed when I posted this. 
  

I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.

However, I must say that this is really great gift from the publisher and we must praise this. Not everybody does this. Kudos to Quality Chess Press for this idea !

The following was posted on the Quality Chess website today:

"6 March 2008 - New edition of Beating the Open Games


Next week a new edition of Beating the Open Games will become available. It includes 48 new pages.

Most of the new book, meaning all major changes, will become available on this site, probably in PDF form, but only after we have finished the production of another book which' deadline is approaching.
