All Nimzo lines and most Bogo lines will be based on a dark squared setup, so moves like ...d6,...e5,...c5 are featured heavily. In the whole Nimzo part the move ...d5 is never played at all. I chose these lines as they have not received any or very litlle coverage in the past.

The Hübner line is part of the book, I couldn't make 4.e3 Nc6 work. 5.Ne2 is just too annoying to face, and even 5.Nf3 is not easy to play against.

Since the book combines Nimzo Indian and Bogo Indian the most logical lines is

4 Qc2 Nc6
4 Nf3 Nc6. According to Wards book whites best is Qc2 here transposing to Qc2.

I would also like to see the rare Taimanov variation covered (4 e3 Nc6). I dont play this line myself so I have no idea how theory goes.

I'd like to see 4.e3 c5 with the intention of playing the Hubner, as most recent literature has focused on various ...d5 lines.  Still, I highly doubt that the author will base his repertoire recommendations on what a few people in an online chess forum want to see!

So what would people like to see as a reprtiore for this new Nimzo-Bogo book?

Here is what I would like to see (it's what I play now at any rate!)

v 4.Qc2 d5 PCA variation against 5.cxd5 and maybe with Short varaiation against 5.a3

v 4.e3 0-0 (Specifically with Karpov Varaition). Wouldn't mind 4...b6 (Dutch variation)

v 4.Nf3 b6 (Nimzo/Queens Indian hybrid) although maybe not appropriate when not recommending the QID. However does avoid the main lines of 4.g3 and 4.a3. If not then 4...c5

v 4.f3 d5 with 5.a3 Be7 6.e4 dxe4 7.fxe4 e5 8.d5 Bc5

v 4.Bg5 I quite like lines with early ...b5

v 4.a3 Bxc3 5.bxc3 Ne4 6.Qc2 f5

What do you reckon then?!

Bogo Indian Lines

4.Bd2 I would think probably 4.Qe7

I also hope they have lines in the Bogo-Catalan with

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 Bb4+

And while Nimzowitsch may not have played 1.d4 Nc6 very often, it does invite a transposition to Nimzowitsch's defense with 2.e4.

In English, "bozo" is a humorously disparaging term: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bozo and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bozo_the_Clown.

I suspect that this is what the "Bozo-Indian" (1.d4 Nc6) refers to, not a combination of Bogoljubov's and Nimzovich's names.


It's both. At least the product blurb I linked to claims a connection to both Nimzowitsch and Bogolyubov. Though I don't think either of them played it more than once or twice.

For 1.d4 Nc6, the names "Bogolyubov Defence" and "Kevitz System" (http://www.kenilworthchessclub.org/kenilworthian/2005/08/1nc6-or-kevitz-system-b...) are also known.

This must be a first in Chesspub-land, though: a new book is announced without the first 8 pages of the thread asking which lines it will cover!

"Bozo-Indian" would not be very clever, since the name has already been used for another opening: 1.d4 Nc6 http://www.chesscentral.com/The_Bozo_Indian_Defense_p/371156.htm

Though it doesn't make much sense to me that a defence that doesn't start 1.d4 Nf6 can still be an "Indian".


Wow. That was new to me, and it strikes me as a confusing name for an opening. Not just because it does not look like an "Indian," but also because both Bogoljubov and Nimzowitsch already have an Indian defense named after them. I would think that if "Bozo-Indian" is the name of one single opening, it should be some kind of Nimzo/Bogo hybrid, and not a completely different opening.

Anyway, thanks for the info!

Grin

I understand the humour, and such an honest title would make me want to buy the book. But I do understand why you are reluctant to use that title.  Tongue

Hmm, I quite like that name for the Nimzo/Bogo combo. Unfortunately, most people will not have heard about the Bozo, and as LostTactic pointed out, the words Nimzo and Bogo should be in the title so that it shows up in searches.

Well, thanks for the advice.

"Not suffer too much as Black: The Nimzo and Bogo" was something that came to mind  Wink Not sure people would appreciate the humour, though...


If you look for something serious how about "play the  Bozo-Indian". Short and easy to remember.

Wait, are we honestly giving advice on book titles??  Really?

Fair point, indeed. We should all get out more.
Off for a long walk in the park, see everyone next year.
