This is really good idea to use.Get a old repertoire and cut and copy in repertoire or just change some lines and paragraph and make your own repertoire.And no one know about it,if you do it properly.Thanks

GM Kosten should decide what is the better option for ChessPubs Subscribers and ChessPubs Forum Writers.

In my humble opinion, if the repertoires are going to be part of ChessPublishing and ChessPub Forum should have a Separate Forum, where the compilers have Moderator/Administratos Roles, in order to make a better job.  Wink

I think it's probably time then to divide some of the "general chess" section out and create a "Repertoires" section.

Wouldn't it be possible to have a public access as well if references in the repertoire is pointing to the game as such?
Then Subscribers have access to the commented ChessPub game and the non-subscriber must get the game from his own reference database - prerhaps too complicated?
  

What kind of proof is that?

Yes, it is enormous. I certainly think that doing one opening at a time and see how it looks is the way to go. Smiley

I suppose that ChessPubs is interested in maintaining the Repertoire ebooks.

Yes, that is certainly my intention.

TN wrote on 12/15/10 at 22:36:00:
Currently I have some references to games from the ChessPublishing archive, since I'm not sure whether these repertoires will be only available for subscribers or not. 

My thought was to use the ChessPub annotated games, and even copy and paste text from the playable eBooks/PDFs, to make new playable eBooks, but in that case the repertoires would only be for subscribers, of course. If you want the repertoires to be available to everyone on the Forum then that won't be possible.

Thank you for your feedback TN.

I used to play 2...d5 vs the Alapin, however in the last times, I am thinking in change to 2...d6 for a less known theory.

I still use the 2...Nc6 move order, because the annoying 6.Nxc6 was marvelous for white in the lates 1980s, according with my old analysis.

KID as a second weapon is fine.

I used to play Slav & Semislav in my personal repertoire ( Grin)

TN wrote on 12/19/10 at 11:13:14:
Against the Alapin I strongly recommend you choose either 2...Nf6 or 2...d5. 2...Nf6 is probably the cleanest equaliser but 2...d5 usually leads to more complex positions.

2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 is usually called the 'Anti-Sveshnikov' since most players who play this way meet 3...Nf6 with 4.Bb5 and other moves such as 3...g6 with 4.d4.

I'd recommend the 2...Nc6 move order because of the annoying option of 6.Nc6 in the 2...e6 move order.

King's Indian.

I'd suggest 1.Nf3 c5 and 1.c4 c5, but that may overlap with my intended repertoire.

Against the sidelines I would recommend playing a similar answer to what you recommend against 1.Nf3/1.c4 since transpositions can occur.

Following LeeRoth suggestion, I am thinking in afford a less ambitious approach to the Active Black Repertorie.

Repertorie I: Play the Sveshnikov vs 1.e4

Second Line: Kalashnikov

Anti-Sicilians to be fixed

1.e4 c5 2.c3 (Alapin)
1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 (Closed Sicilian)

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 (Rossolimo)
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 (Name?)

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.c3 (Deferred Alapin)

Other Anti-Sveshnikov to be covered?

I must look for the way GMs play the Sveshnikov in the XXI Century.

Questions:

Do you Prefer 1.e4 c5
2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nf3 e5 or 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 and arrived to the same position one movement later?


Repertorie II: Play the Grunfeld vs 1.d4

Question: Second Weapon: KID or Active Slav/SemiSlav?

Repertoire III: Play something related with I or II vs 1.c4, 1.Nf3, 1.f4, 1.g3 and soon

1.Nf3 Nf6 to look for a Grunfeld-ian Structure.
1.Nf3 c5 to look for a Sicilian after 2.e4
1.c4 Nf6 to look for a Grunfeld-ian Structure.
1.c4 c6 to look for a Slav Structure. Be careful with 2.e4 going for a Caro.

1.f4, 1.b3, 1.g3, and so on  are not fixed yet.  Wink

As everything, any feed-back is welcome and appreciated.

My original idea was to prepare a repertoire book in the spirit of the Winning with Series.

Using model games, to be used as a pattern recognition of Key Movements, Key Maneuvers,  Key Attacking and Defending Plans, Key Endgames if are relevants.

May be the great work of GM Bronstein on the KID could be used of inspiration: Bronstein on the King's Indian. David Bronstein and Ken Neat. First Published in 1999 by Everyman Publishers plc, formerly Cadogan Books plc.  Wink

My view is that it is more important to cover mainlines and some important side lines together with 1. Key positions, 2. Middle game plans, 3.Typical end games (if there is) in each variation and 4.Good game references that can serve as model games.

To build  “a complete repertoire” will take time and a lot of details will be changed along the line according to your own practice and experience. That is something that should be designed on an individual basis to make it your own repertoire.

Also I think it is better to start with one of the core variations e.g. Ruy Lopez Breyer and then expand.  With that approach you will get much better feedback from the Forum members. You don’t really know what is good or bad until you have something to complain on (in a positive way of course).
  

What kind of proof is that?

I originally underestimated the sheer volume of work entailed in creating a complete repertoire for Black.

To complete the repertoire under my original plan would take up to six months of hard work, and this would probably be too slow for ChessPublishing.

Therefore I am thinking of changing the repertoire format as follows:

a) Instead of trying to cover all the theory, an annotated model game will be provided for the relevant variation. I haven't decided on how detailed the annotations will be or whether I will mostly annotate the opening phase or the middlegame/endgame.
b) Alternatives will be suggested for Black so that the repertoire is not refuted by one mega-novelty.
c) Sources will be recommended so that the purchaser can do their own repertoire work more easily.

This format should be sufficient for players below 2000 to play the repertoire, but those above 2000 will have to do their own work to successfully play the repertoire.

What is your opinion on these changes?
