Does anyone know when Avrukh's GM Repertoire book will be released? Has the planned date of publication changed since the last notification?

Kasparov's series of books on Modern Chess and his matches against Karpov are good guides in general on openings. I'm not sure whether the book(s) cover the most fashionable lines against the Grunfeld, but obviously the Seville Variation would receive good coverage.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

What line do you want to play?

For the fianchetto Avrukh's second volume;

For the 7. Bc4 exchange, Sakaev's book is a good start but it is a few years old and you will need to do some work yourself anyway.

Otherwise you are basically on your own with some decent references here and there until Delchev and Avrukh's books are released.


Look at Kasparov's books, especially his match books with Karpov. Nice Grunfeld analysis.

this thread is such a joke.

of course books are written for 2300s. 2300 is still patzer level.

some books are written for IMs up like the grandmaster repertoire books.

anyway, the quality chess blog said that it's due later but it didn't explicitly say next year so I am guessing it will be out in december or january like delchev's book.

I hope you find something. good luck.

I really hope that either of these books can present ideas against the d4-specials and 1. c4 and 1. Nf3. That was a perennial problem for me that eventually caused me to lose some interest in the Grunfeld.

Chess Stars has announced a new book on the Grunfeld for Black by GM Delchev. So Avrukh will have some company....

These "no books for 2300+ players" remarks are overblown.  For instance, I think of a young Dutch GM who spoke highly of certain books (partially opening books) he was using to study from.

Not sure about 2300+ making books for themselves, but the material that Quality Chess have published is good enough for 2300+, probably even 2600+, especially the GM Repertoire books. That's why I'm so eager for Avrukh's GM Grünfeld, but that is going to take a very long time to be published.

Just discuss your variations in this forum and you get reasonable results. Smiley

Agree on ChessPublishing.

Specialized books on particular Grünfeld variations may still be useful though. Even I who play the Grünfeld only occasionally have bought Sakaev on the Bc4 Exchange, Dearing on the Rb1 Exchange, and Gelfand's best games collection (with a special section on, again, the 8.Rb1 Exchange).

If I wanted to take the opening more seriously I would buy something on the Fianchetto too, like Avrukh's 1.d4 Volume 2 and Janjgava's "King's Indian and Grünfeld: Fianchetto Lines".

But yes, Avrukh's black repertoire is probably what you're really waiting for.

At your self-reported level (2300+), the only realistic option is a subscription to Chesspublishing.com.

If you need it in book form, check office depot for a special on printer ink cartridges, and a sturdy 3-ring binder.   Wink

All the best.

There is perhaps Collin's Rb1 exchange repitoire book, dating from 2005. Detailed in what it covers (but its just Rb1 from a white perspective) but probably out of date in places by now of course.

So not sure Smiley A fully up to date, comprehensive Grunfeld book would be a deeply scary enterprise. Probably >1 book by now actually.


You mean Dearing?
