I recommend 2...exf4 for sure. I have a few relatively unusual recommendations against 3.Nf3 and 3.Bc4  Wink

Another question by an impatient reader: What do you recommend against the King`s Gambit?

I recommend the traditional 5...Na5, where I think Black is doing well. Smiley
And I'm glad to hear that my double-edged approach in this book appeals to you.



Ok it seems very interesting. Can you tell us what are you recommanding against the scotch ?

The excerpt looks pretty good ! As i play both 5..Ng4!? in the 2 Knights and 5..Bc5!? in the spanish 4 Knights myself i will definitely buy this book.

May i ask what your recommendation will be against the “exciting 2 Knights“ ? The traditionell 5..Na5 ? The crazy 4..Bc5 ? Or maybe even 5..b5! ?
In the last case, i would pretty much fall in love with this book Smiley

I am also very fond of your concept going for sharper approaches instead of seeking early boring equality.

Looking forward for this one !

I agree that it might seem strange, perhaps I could've formulated myself better. I simply wanted to write about my own 1.e4 e5 journey, in which Gustafsson's DVD was very inspiring.

I can only hope that my own work will inspire some readers as well as Gustafsson inspired me a few years ago  Smiley

Perhaps I should add that the lines I recommend are not the same as Gustafsson's.

Best Regards
The Author (Lokander)

Sample looks promising.  Oddly, the intro is just an advertisement for Jan Gustafsson's chessbase DVDs.
I'm glad there are finally several good treatments of 1.e4 e5 for black on the market, which was not the case several years ago.

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


Later it was assigned to Matthew Sadler(!) but the author now seems to be Martin Lokander. https://www.everymanchess.com/opening-repertoire-the-open-games-with-black

Lokander is not a bad player. He drew me as white last year. Smiley I think he has two IM norms.

September, 2014 is a long time to wait for repertoire guidance, especailly when it excludes how to handle the Spanish.  My advice to anyone wanting to take up 1...e5 is to plunge in now with his own studies.

Tried to register but system of passkeys is so complicated that they won't get any registrants, let alone subscribers.


Please say or send me a message explaining your trouble with the passkeys.  Personally I send them to a webmail account, then just cut and paste each new passkey into the login.  Nothing could be simpler, at least for me.

The website is intended to store valuable user data; so it seems very important to make sure that every account is safe from brute-force break-in attempts.  Assuming that the user's email account has not been hacked (or is not otherwise accessible to an untrusted party), the passkey essentially guarantees that.  It would be a disaster, for instance, if someone's repertoire became visible to his competitors. 

P.S. Right now we have slightly over 100 registrants; not entirely satisfactory, but we hope to add more as we add more public repertoires and openings analyses.

I am apparently the only ChessPub user who managed to register with no problems. I have it all to myself!
