Boki, all

Any views on this text?

Was expecting a few more pages considering the sizes of the systems. But if what is there is good, would be interested.

Couple of queries:

Does the 'Korchnoi' section also include anti-Nbd7, Glek etc? I.e. repertoirish?

How does the h3-makagonov coverage compare with that in  the chessbase cd, Grivas anti-indian book?

Both the Markos and Avrukh books are announced for December 1 on the Niggemann site.


Niggerman now has both as available. I wonder why this site always seems to have more information about chess books than anywhere else, and more promptly than anywhere else - sometimes even more detail and more timely than even the publisher.  Undecided


With a name like that, I hope he steers clear of Alabama.


LOL!

The problem might be that you don't have the latest version of Java.

I had problems too, until i updated and now works fine.

Switch off the PC, leave your parents' house for a bit, get some sun. Look on the bright side.

All games live is some feat. Some blips bound to occur, but noticed none myself following all England and Japan games.

Well done I say - best coverage yet.

Look forward to the KID book.


I am afraid I have too much of a tan already. I am afraid of the sun.  Sad

Perhaps the problem is with my browser or my ISP then. I have had no success with the link so far.

If I choose the KI I am really happy to see h3 played by White - it is clear, that there will be a fighting game ahead with all the counterchances the KI offers for Black. Furthermore Black is not forced to burn all the bridges as in the Classical Main Lines, where after closing the centre with f4 its do or die. From a psychological point of view I consider the g3-KI to be the most annoying - you dont get what you want as Black, but you have to concentrate on equalizing instead of counterplay.

I've tried the h3-line in a CC game. I wouldn't call it easy to play. (Is the KID ever easy?) White can easily overextend.


I ecko your sentiments totally. I have been trying it out myself. And finding the right moves for White are quite counterintuitive. Grivas covered it in his book - Beating the Finachetto Defences - but his book did not do a lot to help my understanding.  Personally I think the Breutigam CD is the best source if you really want to understand the themes. I have not given up on this system yet  since I think if I can master it, i will have a very good weapon against the KID that many KIDers will not be properly prepared for.
