This thread seems to have gone completely off topic, so I think I will lock it. Roll Eyes

Stop lying.

Do many BDG-eers have problems recognizing a joke? LDZ obviously does. Is there a relation between loving the BDG and lacking a sound sense of humour? Diemer never realized he was the victim of a Dutch practical joke on grand scale.


Maybe Christoph's book is a practical joke.  But what was this Dutch conspiracy?

Stop lying. I don't need any more than 2 copies, one for myself and another to give away. That said, BDG devotees did probably pre-order, but I was not among them.

I look forward to seeing the book in the stores this month.


I'm sorry, Lev.  It was intended with good humor.  I regret that I gave offense.

Allow me to re-phrase the question so that I might get an actual answer.

The new book, THE BLACKMAR DIEMER GAMBIT by IM Christoph Scheerer is now listed on amazon.com as OUT OF PRINT - LIMITED AVAILABILITY.

Could someone with inside information, (Christoph comes to mind), please explain why.


Information on book releases from Amazon.com is often not reliable. But if you really need to know, you might want to consider contacting the publisher directly (there is an email on their website), rather than posting in an open forum unrelated to the publisher.

Some jokes, if that is what they appear be, are in bad taste. That is my opinion.

I use to have a sense of humor. Just ask my lusty zionist girlfriend. Her global warming jokes kept me in stitches. Then I started playing the BDG and joined Chess Publishing to keep up on its latest theory...

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 was amazon.com just now looking for THE BLACKMAR-DIEMER GAMBIT: A Modern Guide to a Fascinating Opening. Surpringly, amazon has changed its status from available soon, to [color=#ff0000]Out of Print -- Limited Availability.

Anyone know what's going on with this book?



Gambit and like minded BDG devotees have clearly  preordered the entire print run.


No, Gambit alone has pre-ordered the entire run, and plans to sell it on the street corner, marked up by 25%.

Everyman's website still says it's supposed to be out in the States this month, and out in Europe next month. That said, it's not in their "Coming Soon" section, so who the hell knows.  Sad

I can try sending it again. Or don't you remember that I sent it to you and the email  came back to me for some reason?


No, I don't - as the email came back to you I did not receive it. Some more easy logics might bring you to the hypothesis that you might have typed my address incorrectly. I'll send it to you again.

Yes, probably the BDG does not lose.

Then again, neither does the Goering.
