I am not a big fan of the Berlin but it seems that the recents results are really bad at high level! I don't have a list in front of me but there were 2 games by Carlsen, Vachier-Lagrave against Caruana, Smeets - Mc Shane at the Staunton Memorial, and somes other games.

Greetings,

I see that there are two editions mentioned on this site:
The Cheapest Book

Does this mean the second edition - or, at least, printing - will include the corrigenda (puctuation, missing Introduction) and, perhaps, addenda (additional material from the above-mentioned ChessPub thread)?

Between this book and Emms' Play The Open Games As Black, 1...,e5 players are "sorted"!  Cool

Kindest regards

Dragan Glas

I just got my copy from ChessCafe / USCF Sales yesterday -- very speedy delivery (to the East Coast anyway) but no real savings, even for USCF members (especially considering the shipping fees).  ChessCafe's service is always excellent, though, so if you don't mind the price I can recommend them.

Looks like a very balanced portrait of the opening with lots of very interesting endgames.  In fact, I think White wins most of the games in the book, which is probably accurate to reality but not a great selling point for the opening.

I've never encountered a book so hard to order before! Cheesy

Had it preordered at browseforbooks, when suddenly they realise they can't provide it...

Checked a danish game store in Cph and then skaksalg online - nothing.

Then tried amazon, only to find out it wouldn't arrive until April/May 2009.

Saw this thread and then went for schachdepot, only to finally run into: "Zur Zeit bieten wir Ihnen nur eine Versandart an. Deutsche Post Deutsche Post Es ist leider kein Versand in dieses Land möglich"

-Doesn't Deutsche Post know where Sweden is?? Merkwürdig  Shocked

And now I'm tired of wasting time registering for online stores that can't deliver.


Hey John, still wanna trade?  Wink

Today Amazon no longer has the book eligible for pre-order. The book is no longer available at all from Amazon.



that is not good... because I preordered it 6 months ago and it was supposed to be here yesterday but I don't even have a tracking number... its still listed in my account as 'deliver by 11/1' and they've already charged my credit card.

I got my copy of the book today and was amazed. Still did not have time to check in depth the content but for me it looks like the author raised up the level of all opening books which will be published in the future.
I quite like the style and cross my fingers that in the future we will have more books like this. After looking inside and checking some of the lines where i have some ideas i will share my thoughts.
Anyway, I want to congratulate Jacob & Co and of course the author of the book for the great work they have done.
Now i start wondering when a simmilar book about my belowed Sicilain Rauzer will appear  Roll Eyes Undecided
I am ready to help the potential author with some ideas and pure technical stuff for free, just to have such a book about that variation Wink

Regards

I have uploaded an excerpt. You can either find it on our site, or go directly through http://www.qualitychessbooks.com/uploadimages/39683.36646664351TheBerlinWallInte...

 The link does not work. Do you have a good one, as the book is not yet available in the US.

If you are in the US you can usually buy our books from Chess for less at their publication.


 The book is still not out in the US. Amazon does not have it.


Are you sure? It seems "orderable" from Chess4less:

Yesterday I bought this book in a shop. If you take a look to the content:

 https://shop.schachdepot.de//catalog/product_info.php?products_id=2037&osCsid=a6...

you see that Cox had written a book mainly about the endgame- and middlegame structures of this system. So you buy not a repertoirebook. It`s a nice book but not a "normal" openingbook.  

   That is OK, since this "opening" is mostly about the endgame anyway.
