Hmm, I guess Eric can't tell us what lines he is planning to cover.

I support MNb. What I meant was what to play instead of that...like if Black plays Qb6, then what to play.

Mainly the line where black plays c5 (with out e6) then Qb6 and in response to Qb3, plays c4 and after Qc2, plays Bf5+ !


Seconded.
  

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.

I think White should avoid lines like 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Bf4 c5 4.e3 Nc6 5.c3 Qb6 6.Qb3 c4 - one of his goals is precisely to play that endgame with colours reversed! See eg a game Kovacevic-Piket which about began as 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Bf4 Bf5 4.e3 c6 (e6 5.Nbd2 Nbd7 6.c4 c6 7.Qb3 etc.) 5.c4 e6 6.Qb3 Qb6 7.c5.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

I am looking towards the London games by Eric. Specially the variation suggested for black in d4 deviation book.


Cox recommends 3 different lines against the London in his book. Which line are you looking forward to Eric covering? One of the lines he covers is 1 d4 Nf6 3 Nf3 e6 3 Bf4 d5. I have already found improvements for White in this line with the help of the book Win with the London System.

"London Feast"

Eric Prie in his July 2008 update said that he is planning a "London Feast" in the following months. I was wondering if Eric could tell us what lines he is planning to cover and if coverage of the following 2 lines could be included.

1 d4 Nf6 2 Bf4 g6 3 e3 Bg7 4 Nf3 d6 5 h3 0-0 6 Be2 Nfd7 and now I was wondering if we could get coverage of the main line 7 0-0 and my suggestion 7 e4.

1 d4 d5 2 Bf4 Bf5 3 c4 I asked Eric himself about this line and he said "after 3...dxc4! 4.Nc3 Nf6 5.f3 c6 6.e4 Be6 when you have to realize this is a real gambit proably inferior to Mamedyarov-Kamsky M-Tel Sofia 2007 because of the bishop on f4 hampering the key manoeuvre Ne2-f4!" I was wondering if we could get coverage of this gambit line.
