I'd be interested to see an update of the first volume, addressing, for example, the new 4...0-0 5 Ne2 c6(!) line, as well as one of the lines he recommends for White in the Karpov Variation just being a draw.

The funny thing was that shortly the after the book got out Sokolov played in an elite tournamnet and got a terrible score vs Nimzo so he swithed to Nf3 and met Ragozin instead in one game and lost there too.

I dont think Sokolov ever will realese a part 2 becouse of theoretical reasons.

Maybe Sokolov wanted to be able to recommend the Sämisch for White, but found he couldn't and got discouraged?

He dabbled a bit with the Sämisch around the time the first book came out, among other things with an early Ne2-g3 move order finesse. But I believe Black players found a good answer to that. Don't remember more details here and now.

Does anyone know the reason why the second volume was never published? It's a shame because the first one was so superb. Maybe not enough copies sold? It's hard because it is so often mentioned in the text that something will be covered in the second volume that it seemed like Sokolov already worked out most of the material. So why was it never published?
Maybe at some day, Thinkers Publishing is allowed to do so. I will forward this question to both publishers because I really enjoy Sokolov's expertise and Sämisch structures and lines are simply so fascinating!
Furthermore, because of that, the line 3. Sc3 Bb4 4. e3 d5 is not mentioned at all...


I'd be interested in what they have to say.  I bought the first volume and then never saw anything about the second.

That pawn sac was refuted by Leko a few years ago; the game's on this site.

If White is meant to be struggling when Black omits the standard ...Ne8 it's news to me.
One thing I would wonder about is a pawn sac Sokolov liked in his book of a few years ago:  9. e4 Ne8 10. O-O Ba6 11. f4 f5 12. d5
Na5 13. e5 Bxc4 14. Bxc4 Nxc4 15. d6, as played in a game Milov-J. Polgar.

maybe he saw that white is actually struggling after 4.a3 Bxc3+ 5.bxc3 c5 6.e3 O-O 7.Bd3 Nc6 8.Ne2 b6 9.e4 d6 10.O-O Ba6 11.f4 Na5 and gave up on it

Not that I've seen; I just checked the 'forthcoming books' section of New In Chess and couldn't find any mention of the volume.

True, but most restraint-type positions strike me as a grovel. Maybe my perception of them is wrong.  Wink

I don't play this with either color, but I find the restraint positions fascinating. The above first 20 moves can be found in Sokolov's book. On first glance, 18...Ne4 19.Bxe4 Rxe4 20.g5! with his supporting analysis almost looks like a forced win for White. What about 18...Nf7, though? Simply preventing g4-g5 ideas.

Sokolov indicates that Black needs to find a cure in this 10.Bb2 line. Maybe 18...Nf7 is it?

Just food for thought.

Very interesting book but I did say mainly written for white but black players should also gain something from the book so I will read it when I get some spare time. Quick look at some random places where some old black books call it equal Sokolov calls it slightly better for white and without computer check I think Sokolov is acutally right!

This book is a must for any white e3 Nimzo player. White 1 e4 players can also gaing something if they play Panov attack vs Caro-Kann since it transposes to Karpov variation.

This volume is from the white view point, and looks for most promising sides for white based on Sokolov's own rep on 4e3. Vol 2 will be similar I think but about 4a3.

Indeed, me too. The book is impressive and rare these days because to really explain structures and plans takes time and experience. I look forward to more books by Sokolov. This series remembers me the modern way of the old and excellent RHM series with great teachers like Mednis. I order it and only waiting for Anand games second edition to have almost 1000 pages of great quality to study. I hope Sokolov continues his Lord of the Rings series.  Smiley

As far as I can see from the index, Sokolov doesn't cover the lines (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e3 b6 5.Bd3 Bb7) 6.f3 and 6.Nge2. Does he mention especially the latter at all?

One bit I'm curious about:  whether the book cites any games by Jan Werle.  A few years ago Werle (a young Dutch GM), who at the time had Sokolov as his trainer, took up the White side of the 4. e3 Nimzo and played some nice games with it.  One of them involved a g4 pawn sac which struck me as an interesting novelty, but I never saw it repeated or commented upon.

This seems an extremely impressive book, just by looking at the table of contents and the pdf sample. In my experience Sokolov is very thorough in his analysis, this should be no exception.

Don't know if everuthing on the backcover blurb should be taken as fact. As far as I remember Sokolov played 4.Qc2 a lot, and he even wrote a book about it.

Anyway, the game vs Kasparov is very attractive indeed!

Saw it at another swedish book site as "The Strategic Nimzo-Indian: A Complete Guide to the Rubinstein Variation" with no mention of Vol 1. Expected release: 16/5 this time and 384 pages.

I wouldn't be surprised if he covers some of the 4.a3 and 4.f3 territory as well.


According to the actual publisher:

"The Strategic Nimzo-Indian: A Complete Guide to the Rubinstein Variation is the first of a two-part series. In this ground-breaking and clearly structured first volume, Sokolov investigates all lines after the move 4.e3. Volume 2 will be about 4.a3, the Sämisch Variation.

Inspired by great masters like Mikhail Botvinnik, Ivan Sokolov has played the Rubinstein Variation all his life, and he has even beaten World Champion Garry Kasparov with it.

Although play can become very sharp, the Nimzo-Indian requires a profound positional understanding. Ivan Sokolov does not simply give variations, but provides clear explanations of the structures and plans in the various branches, and presents new ideas and resources for both Black and White.

Each chapter ends with a summary containing key strategic and tactical advice"

Yes, I think it started out as 2 opehings covered. On amazon it says 4.e3 and 4.a3     Now the NIC website says 4.e3 Vol 1.  Amazon still says it is one book but it looks as if it has been split, hence Vol. one.  I got the impression that this would be a good guide from the white side or a complete guide for both sides, Sokolov being one of the main GM's to play and write about the white side of the Nimzo, I Pre-ordered it from amazon which says March 16th, but I have a feeling it is going to be delayed, because amazon is still listing 4.a3 in the contents.  I wonder if Sokolov is going to write a whole series on the Nimzo? 

hope this book comes out soon, until then, using Challenging the Nimzo by Quality Chess and some fresh updates is Kaufman's new rep book.  Also Quality Chess will release a book against the Indian defenses looking at the blog maybe 4. f3 but most likely 4.e3 as Jacob says three of the games on the nimzo chapter are Botvinik's.

I wish they would give a pdf on Sokolov's new book... Smiley

16/3 according to Bookdepository, but probably worth waiting for if you play or face the Nimzo regularly. His pawn structure book had some really nice analysis on the Nimzo.

It's not 100% clear what you get. Initially it was given as including bot e3 and a3 lines. Given the subtitle and expected other volumes, my guess is that this series has the point of view from the black perspective but tries to be fairly complete. It probably is a high class guide on how to choose lines as black (and maybe also white) in the Nimzo.

I think this would be interesting as the opening is a labyrinth. It's not easy to get a good overview of the opening. There are some repertoire books for both sides, but even the Starting out and Explained books were quite specific and omitted many lines. I haven't seen any complete overview since the old Gligoric book.

I think New in Chess has reasonable info on new books. Everyman and Quality chess often announce books which later are delayed for several months. Chess stars is better in that respect. I wouldn't use adlibris as source for publication dates. The chess dedicated book stores (Nic, Niggemann, London chess centre, et al.) are often quicker than the general stores. For swedes, Schackbutiken is the place to look. (You can always send them an email. They had the Kaufman book before they announced it on their website.)

For anyone who wondered, that's a New In Chess book. Looking at the sub-title it seems pretty clear what it's about "The Strategic Nimzo-Indian Vol. 1: A Complete Guide to the Rubinstein Variation".

New In Chess might want to consider their publicity measures, I'd think. It says "Pub. date: February 2012" and a google search doesn't even find the book, yet. When I compare that to the up-front discussion any of the more exciting Quality Chess, Chess Stars or Everyman books get on this site, they clearly could do more. Even looking at the entry for the book on the NIC website http://www.newinchess.com/The_Strategic_Nimzo_Indian-p-969.html, it's not 100% clear what you get. A couple guide, I suppose means he looks at everything there is in the Rubinstein and I assume it's not just a complete guide through a white repetoire, but who knows. A recent good book on the Rubinstein has certainly been lacking though.

I suppose the "Vol. 1" in the sub-title might suggest that he'll do the round around the various variations in subsequent volumes (presumably 4.Qc2, f3 or Nf3 next?).
