Around this time Kolev was also quite upset - because of his alleged co-author actually NOT working. I would have preferred to have on the cover page the name of Vasil Spasov, who is already 6-time Bulgarian champion. At least I could have bragged that I had tournament victories versus both of our respected authors. But Spasov has never contacted me "...by any means, in any form, electronic or mechanical...", not to mention in person.
You know, Milen, a contract has two sides: rights, but also obligations. So, the next time you decide publicly to take someone's side, perhaps it would be better first to hear out the other one, too. You have my E-mail and did not hesitate to use it a few months ago for personal reasons.

There are not yet any reviews on this book.
Returning back to the problem with authorship yesterday I found that in his article in NIC YB 84 (page 50 as i remember) GM Kolev mentions that at the time the article was published (mid-end of 2007) he is working on the book "The Easiest Sicilian" together with GM Vasil Spasov. So I can see why GM Spasov is upset.
Regards

Thanks in advance!

You cannot claim the history, the language or the name of another nation (that brought the lights to the Western Civilation) as yours. We are proud about the Alexander the Great the Macedonian who conquered and civilized the ancient world who of course was not a Slav but a Greek! But now everyone when hears the word "Macedonian" don't think of ancient Greeks but a Slav nation! Can 1,5 million people (that are Slavs) decide to call themselves Macedonians, that speak Macedonian and come directly from the Ancient Macedonians (which is the most ridiculus claim of course!) and 7 million people who really are Macedonians do nothing?  What about them?

And what about the claims that they want the "whole" Macedonia to get free (meaning to unite the Greek Macedonia and some small regions in Bulgaria and Albania.) Maybe you have not a problem, but i have a problem when my neighbors raise their chlids and make them believe that they are a nation who's most part is slave to Greece or Bulgaria or i don't know who else...

If someone want to be a part of the EU or the NATO or the UN or any other international organization ,has to respect the other participants.  We respect our neighbors and (although that is wrong, because their historical name is "Vardarska" or something like that...) we let them have in their name the word "Macedonia", but in a way that all the other people can seperate them from the ancient Greek nation of the Macedonia. What is wrong with that? And don't tell me that the Netherlands have such deep historical backgrounds!


  The so called macedonian nation and language ocured in the 40-50ies of 20th century, when Serbia tried to turn the slav population  in the region into serbs, without any significant result. Then to keep it`s influence in Macedonia, serbian secret sevices invented macedonian so-called scolars, who have discovered that there was macedonian language, nation and history. All this was fake, so there had to be assumed facts from the history of the neighbouring countries to be macedonian. The victims were Bulgaria and Greek. The same is with the national identity of the population.
  Today Macedonian politics and state administration keep the lie alive to get their salaires, otherwise there would not be a macedonian state.
  About the national identity of macedonians - let they decide by themselves, but they are slavs and many know their grandfathers were bulgarians.
  After all the Byzantine Imperor Vassili was called a killer of bulgarians not a a killer of macedonians.
  It is a funny story, if not the persecution of people with bulgarian conscience in Macedonia and the total cenzoreship.
   For referrence about historical facts see Encyclopeadia Britannica.

Yesterday I got my copy of the book together with the Khalifmans volume 10 about Anand. During the weekend I will went thru them and will try to make some conclusions. Also will check some of the variations I played in my corr games.


Make sure you store the books apart, otherwise they'll start fighting each other  Wink
  

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations

This thread is called "The Easiest Sicilian". So it would be better to create a thread to discuss the plans and wishes about other openings with Semko.
