I've just noticed this game in TWIC 861



22 a3, 23 b4 looked a bit insane Cheesy, but I guess it was just equal before that.

Hopefully Tim Sawyer's Blackmar-Diemer Keybook IV will be coming out in a timely fashion next year!

The book came out in February 2011. I bought my copy at the United States Amateur Team East on February 20.

As for Everyman's BDG book, I will believe it when I see it published.

Markovic is right. I'm sorry for my off-topic posts. As for the book now, are you sure that it will be out eventually? Wink

I've deleted that post as well.

It was a specific reply in this thread – whereas leaving it up as a stand-alone makes it seem like a diatribe on CC, which was never what was intended.


I thought it stood well enough on its own, but that is your privilege.   In any case, its context would have been missing here as well, once I deleted a whole series of posts from which it sprang.

Off-Topic replies have been moved to this Topic.

Which means, Jon Tait's lucid post on computers in CC, in reply to Lev. 

I have also deleted a slew of recent posts of the I-will-beat-you variety.  Posts of that kind have no place in a forum devoted to chess theory.  Will everyone who wants to thump on his chest about who he can beat please do so either in private messages, in General Chess, or wherever?  I don't care which.  The same goes for issuing challenges.

I also deleted one or two posts from Lev ranting about the lateness of Christoph's book.  The subject was all right, but the tone was immoderate.

Yes, it's true, since it's on the "coming soon list" ... at least Feb 2011 : http://www.everymanchess.com/chess/books/The_Blackmar-Diemer_Gambit%3A_A_modern_...
Ok, now let's see if it has been updated ... it was supposed to be published in 12/2009 !
I hope this book is like wine !  Wink

Herr Wisnewski, this is outrageous procrastination on the part of the editors! They are procrastinating idiots who don't know one thing about responsibility. As someone who was Executive Editor of a weekly student newspaper, I know firsthand about meeting deadlines. This kind of procrastination would have had an employee fired a long time ago at our paper.

These so-called Everyman editors should stop keeping the back of a chair warm and do some work. The way they treat your manuscript is disrespectful, ignorant, asininely stupid and just plain un-journalistic! Who do these false editors think they are, the Emperors of China? No, they are just as human as you and me. And that means they have a responsibility to uphold!

I seriously believe you should pull the contract and give your final version to a better company, such as Doubleday, McKay, or Russell Enterprises. Everyman just plain stinks, to put it diplomatically.

Of course there are 4-letter words to call them, but this is not the place for that, so I won't. However, my plain language more than conveys my feelings about the delayed BDG book. I am probably not the only one who feels that way.

To be honest, I don't know anything more about the book's progress than you do.

Fact is, I handed in my final draft a long time ago, but there seems to be a problem in the editing process.

Suffice it to say, that I will most certainly have to revise it when I get the edited version...  Huh
