Very green isn't it? Two tone as well. It seems that they felt the need to compete with the 'exciting' colour schemes from the SOS series.....

Oh, ... can it be true? That I hold here, in my mortal hand, an opening book  of purest Green?  Cool

The KID is the one major defence where I deliberately avoid the main lines for White. You get interesting, unbalanced psoitions almost no matter what you play for White, so I think the main lines (Classical, Gligoric, Fianchetto) are not mandatory at my level.

But this book deals with most of the sidelines I do play, so now a) they will be higher on Black players' radar, b) they will be better prepared and c) I will have to buy the book myself!

I have mostly good things to say about Everyman, but this is downright annoying!  Angry

The majority of these "Dangerous Weapons" are from Black's point of view. However, this does have the advantage of presenting Black with an almost complete repertoire; the only major lines not covered from Black's point of view are the Makogonov variation, the 4.e4 d6 5.g3 line, and the Smyslov variation. However, the antidotes given for these lines by previous books are still valid.

By the way: 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 g6 3 Nc3 Bg7 4 e4 d6 5 Nf3 0-0 6 Be2 e5 7 0-0 Nbd7 8 Be3 Re8 9 Qc2 Looks promising for White and although Bologan and Bacrot have both recently posted wins on the Black side of this line, I am not totally convinced by their handling of the position.

Ideas welcome.

Toppy Smiley


I have been doing some poking around myself in this line since I stumbled across it, so I'm interested in what the book has to say. Delaying d5 seems logical. I think Black might be OK with 9. ...Ng4 10. Bg5 Bf6 11. Bxf6 Ngxf6 12. Rad1 c6 e.g.  

½-½ Gyimesi,Z (2610)-Nevednichy,V (2531)/Hungary 2008
0-1 Smirnov,A (2438)-Kozul,Z (2583)/Plovdiv 2008

but there's a lot of ground here.

This book was just promoted to the "Coming Soon" status at everymanchess.com.

I just asked them to send me a Table Of Contents for both that book and the Dangerous Weapons: Anti-Sicilians book.
