Too many late nights. I got my wires crossed and somehow thought I was talking about the d3 line that a couple of people had identified as frightening them off proper consideration of the Arkhangelsk. Don't know why that happened...

Just looked at the contents/guiding text and I don't see 7.d3.

Well, that's sad. Actually, on Youtube, they never reply to my questions or PM's.


Is this line covered at all in the DVD?
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O b5 6. Bb3 Bb7 7. c3 Nxe4 8. d4 exd4 9. Re1 d5 10. Ng5 Qf6


Just got it a little while back and then remembered your question and looked at the contents. I don't believe it's covered.

7.Re1 and then 8.c3 is.

Feel free to ask me anything you want.


In fact this important line IS covered, in Game 19 Palac-Bartel, 2011.

I agree that this DVD could have been better, but nevertheless I found much of it interesting and useful. There are far, far worse "products" out there!

This is a warning for everyone who want to buy this crap produced by Lilov. Michalchishin was never honest with his analysis even whith his pupils in Poland (ask GM Kaminski) but Lilov is just lazy and he is giving worst stuff available on DVDs. Much worse than higly criticized Dzindzi. So this is a warning: Michalchishin DVD is not good but save your money and don't buy anything from Lilov because it's 1000x worse than from Michalchishin. This is a good place to write a bit about level of these Dvd's. People should know who is not treating them seriosly and just want their money for giving back analysis full of flaws and repertoire holes. Michalchishin DVD is full of such things and even more of them you can find in works of Lilov who is "Eric Schiller of chess DVD's"


I would often agree with Markovich on such.
But Lilov is so incredibly inept that an exception can be made in this instance.
A public service announcement to potential customers to avoid like the plague.
Indeed, Schiller on DVD.

In their defence, Chessbase usually produce much better products. I liked the exchange sac DVD, Gustafsson, the Scandinavian (with some reservations but no doubt quality) and many of the '60 min' series. But forgetting to include a video and declining to comment altogether is lame.

LOL, correct! I guess I was curious about 3...g6 and his handling of the Vienna and Four Knights, plus the King's Gambit. But it's way too hurried in a lot of places and he doesn't choose the best lines. There is some food for thought though...

However, this is going to be the last chessbase DVD for a long while...

That seems entirely reasonable Smiley (Fun to contrast this with the thread just above of course Wink)

I still find the idea that such a natural move as 6.. Bc5 spent so long being 'unplayable' deeply amusing. A tiny bit scared of the 20+ move deep theory that nn vs Shirov has developed in its main line mind.

Martin C, yes the Kasparov-Kramnik line can be improved earlier with White getting a bigger edge form the endgame one.

Paddy, i agree on everything you said. Maybe it is not obvious to everyone, but i have analysed a lot and i have a large file with analysis on this ...Bd6, so my "conclusions" are not based ONLY on general terms. But of course you didn't know that and i didn't say  that in my previous posts. But yes, i cannot but agree simply with everything in you last post. I haven't checked your analysis in the pgn yet though....

From what i have seen, the ...Bb7-d3! system is at least annoying in practise with many positions being slightly worse for Black all the time. That's why i like the Neo-Archangel with ...Bc5 much more. This is my opinion.
