Returning with another Vienna question:

Seems possible many books focus on 2...Nf6. Which book goes deepest into 2...Nc6 instead?


I give 2...Nc6 in my book, but that's a repertoire for Black. I'm guessing you want the White side.

If you want to play 3 Bc4 against either knight move, then Ovetchkin & Soloviov's The Modern Vienna Game covers that, including 50 pages on 2...Nc6 without ...Nf6.

Returning with another Vienna question:

Seems possible many books focus on 2...Nf6. Which book goes deepest into 2...Nc6 instead? I have the Petrov video from The Chess World, and it had only one game; Corbat,P Nagley,T 2000, 1-0 (excuse my poor citation). But I would welcome video sources if they were honestly helpful in looking at 2...Nc6 lines.

TIA!

The Kenilworthian was a great resource.

Well, you could try _The_ Internet Archive. For example:

And after a 7-year hiatus in this thread...

I am waiting for a copy via Ebay of his Bishop's Opening book from the 70's since I want to review what was with what is in that opening. I read somewhere of the value of his Kibitzer newsletter. Does anyone know if they are archived anywhere on-line?

I put together a bibliography devoted to 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.f4, which is a challenging line for juniors and club players:

http://kenilworthian.blogspot.com/2014/05/vienna-gambit-c29-bibliography.html

Most of the books mentioned also cover 3.Bc4 lines.

Also, an analysis based on games from the Alrick Man theme tournament:

It's by no means the only move for Black, but 3. .. Nxe4 is well-known for generating positions of extreme boredom or extreme imbalance.

The Modern Vienna Game
by Ovetchkin and Soloviov is out

The book is 100% based on 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Bc4 rather than 3.f4 (3...d5! simplifies to easily)

Extract from pre-face:
The Vienna set-up is aimed at very aggressive play, which often include sacrifices, but White prefers to be on the safe side, without burning all the bridges and to try to justify his actions from the point of view of positional play as well.
At first he develops his minor pieces to active positions, then he advances the the thematic move f4, castles (usually kingside) and begins an attack only after all this.

Does anyone know anything about The Modern Vienna Game by Ovetchkin & Soloviov from Chess Stars? I see a table of contents, but no publication date. Any word?

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Just finished going over this one and I found it very helpful, although I only focused on the 3. f4 lines.  I would suggest checking their analysis against your database and using your engine because I did find some instances where I don't necessarily agree with them. 

For example they prefer the Pierce over the Hammpe-Allgaier and therefore don't put much info on the Hammpe-Allgaier but the line they give as busting the Hammpe-Allgaier seems to rely on white making an error and as far as I can tell it seems easier for white to play than the Pierce.

They suggest after 6...h5 7Nxf7 Kxf7 8. d4 d5 9 Bxf4 Bb4 10. Be2 that the Hammpe-Allgaier is refuted.  I agree that Be2 looks bad for white, but after 10. Bd3 white seems fine?
