For those interested, the is a freely available 1...e5 repertoire for Black available at https://1e5.org . It includes the Two Knights. It does not cover the Spanish, a Black repertoire versus which will eventually be available at https://ruylopez.org.

The book really needs to cover the Two Knights defense.
The last 3 sources have all covered 3...Bc5 (Gustafsson DVD, Lysyj & Ovetchkin for ChessStars, and Kaufman Repertoire).


Mikhalchishin has some good Two Knights material on his recent Chessbase DVD.

There is another book on the horizon: A vigorous chess opening repertoire for Black: Tackling 1.e4 with 1...e5 but the author is a mystery. 

David Vigorito would be  a good choice, if only to justify the title.

It has been said that chess players are good at two things, Chess and Excuses.  It has also been said that Chess is where all excuses fail! In order to win you must dare to fail!

At the Everyman page, Hawkins is no longer the author and the publication date is moved a year away.


I would like to see Emms write it, he did a good job on The Open Games for Black (Gambit)

On this wepsite it isn't a problem, but after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4: c3 Nf6 5: d4 exd4 5: cxd4 Bb4+ 6. Bd2 Bxd2 7. Nxd2 d5 8. exd5 Nxd5 9. Qb3, he gives 9.. Na5, which indeed equalises after 10. Qa4+ Nc6 11. Qb3 Na5, but he gives no lines if black has to play for a win. And he is generally glad to go into drawish endgames. Not that its not possible to lose, but the draw is probably most likely.

Yeah, the same old recipe against the KG. I would rather the book look at g5 or my personal preference, 3...Ne7 ideas.

This repertoire has been done by Chess Stars very recently. Their Giuoco Piano stuff was based on early ...d5 lines, maybe this will have ...d6 lines instead?

However you could argue that the Two Knights and 2...Bc5 against the King's Gambit was done by Nigel Davies in Everyman's Play 1...e5 book.

Seemingly not if it´s based on Hawkins´ own opening repertoire.

Then it will be 3...Bc5 vs. the Italian, 2...d5 3 exd5 exf4 vs. the King´s Gambit etc. His choices are mostly solid as far as I can see. That´s not bad of course.

But I would love to see a good recent work covering the Two Knight´s, 3...g5 vs. KG and so on.
