I hope the author rounds up the repertoire coverage with variations like:
2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Bc5 and 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 g6 or 2.Nc3 Bc5 3.Nf3 d6

The Four Knights Game by Andrey Obodchuk

240 pages, ISBN-13: 978-9056913724,
€18 / $16 , forthcoming november 2011

The Four Knights variation is one of the oldest chess openings, dating back to the 16th century.
In recent years it has been injected with numerous fresh ideas and has shaken off the reputation of
being a peaceful choice. White has quite a few ways to create tension and play for the attack.
Russian International Master Andrey Obodchuk has written a repertoire book for white players
based on the Spanish Four Knights variation
. He covers a range positional themes as well as
amazing, sharp adventures, and creates an easy-to-handle toolbox for amateur chess players of
intermediate level. Players of the white pieces will discover how to build on the strong points of their
position, while black players will learn how to defend. As a special extra there is an additional chapter
on the Belgrade Gambit
, another variation of the Four Knights Game, containing some fantastic lines,
ideal for uncompromising players.
