Hi Glen,

I think you're right that Bg5 is the way to go and am currently analysing to determine whether there is enough compensation.

Thanks for the response.

Nelson. Smiley

I got the message today that Rendle's book has been cancelled. It is deleted on Everyman's list of books.

I wonder what Rendles' antidote to 1 d4 f5 2 Nc3 d5 3 e4 de will be in the light of the comments to the BDG thread currently under discussion.

Nelson  Huh


It's quite possible that Rendle believes the 1.d4 f5 2.Nc3 d5 3.Bf4! of Leningrad System by Kindermann and will recommend 2...Nf6.  To me 3.e4 looks like a decent move too as long as White follows 3...dxe4 with Gambit's 4.Bg5!.  I remember looking at this a couple years ago and believing White had enough compensation.  I don't feel like an analytical debate though, so you'll have to draw your own conclusions (it's of case of just not caring enough to bother).

I am no expert but the market is small so I assume production time has a lot to do with the potential buyers' willingness to pay.

It takes roughly a month and a half to print a book at the lowest price but it could be done in less than one week if you pay premium prices. The same with transportation; by the cheapest boat rates it takes close to a month  to ship books from Europe to the US. By air I guess it would take only a day or two.

At thge risk of sounding totally ignorant, I wonder why it takes so frickin long to come out with these books. I think it has more to do with publishers not wanting to saturate the market and pace themselves rather than any technical aspects in book writing.

You are right (except that this ad http://www.everymanchess.com/chess/books/Dangerous_Weapons%3A_The_Dutch%3ADazzle...says January 2010). It will certainly be an interesting read. I hope the balance will be kept with as many weapons for Black as for White, and that not too many of White's weapons will be early g4 gambits.

It seems that Everyman will also be releasing Dangerous Weapons: The Dutch in the fall of 2009 as well.

The Leningrad with 7...Qe8 is still adequately covered by Kindermann's 'Leningrad System', Olms 2005.

Beim's 'Understanding the Leningrad Dutch', Gambit 2002, covers that line and also 7...c6 but is starting to date somewhat now.

I'm not a Dutch player (unless you count 1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5 3.d5!? f5! which I've played as Black and luckily got in tournament once) so please, what's wrong with 7...Qe8? It seems to me that's the best move.

With Everyman, you can never what "soon" means  Wink

It's not really their fault, a lot of Chessplayers aren't that punctual. I have to admit that even I only started writing the DW - Flank book after their final deadline had actually passed! Embarrassed
Maybe the author can enlighten us?

Amazon UK now shows this as 30 April 2009 (but curiously already fields two glowing reviews).

My suspicion is 7..Nc6, which I recall the author playing - a shame as this has accounted for the majority of my best wins against superior opposition and I am therefore keen to keep it out of the limelight Cheesy

It is also a great line to play in a simul.
