@Viking:

Thanks for sharing you thougts  Smiley

Have been playing the pseudo tromp lately without any resources available before now(being bored meeting the slav).

Half of the coverage is devoted to 2..f6 which is perhaps the theoretically most difficult reply to meet. Bh4 is main recommendation but also Bf4 and Bd2(totally new to me) is covered.  He is not able to show any advantage but positions are unorthodox and white is most likely the one with more experience.

I had hoped Pert would show me some new brilliant way to handle the 2..h6 3.Bh4 c6 4.Nf3 Qb6 5. Qc1 Bf5 which I find very solid and is a very natural slav like way of handling the opening. Unfortunately there is no magic. But it is still a normal game of chess of course.

I have not studied the section in detail (I wonder if I ever do Embarrassed) but it has so far given me inspiration and new ideas to continue playing this interesting practical opening.

Hmm.

What about the line with 1.d4-d5 2.Bg5. Does anybody have an opinion about that chapter, or is it still too early?

(he mention 7.Ne2!? as a move to consider but he doesn't analyse this move further but Bf5 and black seem to be with no problem see Vitiugov-Karjakin 2010!)


Pert on P 181: Quote:
If you would prefer to delay the exchange even longer, you could consider 7.Ne2!?


In my opinion Pert wanted to say "maybe you want to try Ne2" because Vitiugov played it.

Ok I will bring two examples (1- is a main line which I play against as black and the 2 is a sideline- but I want to show a phenomenon  that return over and over):

1) 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 3.Bf4 d5 (I play this line as black and against this he give just one recommendation) 4.e3 c5 5.Bd3 cxd4 6.exd4! (his exclamation mark- he prefer this move over Bxe4) Nc6 7.Bxe4 (he mention 7.Ne2!? as a move to consider but he doesn't analyse this move further but Bf5 and black seem to be with no problem see Vitiugov-Karjakin 2010!) dxe4 8.Ne2 (he shows why 8.d5 doesn't work) and now he give 2 moves: 8...e5 as a mistake and 8...Bg4 as the main line, but 8...g6! seem to give black very good game for example: 9.d5 (9. Nbc3 Bg7 10.d5 transpose because 10.Nxe4 Nxd4 seems fine for black) Bg7! 10.Nbc3 (10.dxc6 Qxd1+ 11.Kxd1 Bxb2... ) Ne5 11.0-0 (11.Nxe4 Nc4 looks fine) f5 with the plan h6 and than casteling if black can, and I think that just black can be better in the long run (and he even doesn't mention g6!)

2) Sideline: 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 Ne4 3.Bf4 d5 4.e3 and beside the four moves he give for black, he give as a sideline 4...g6 and than : 5.Bd3 Bg7 6.Bxe4 dxe4 7.Nc3 f5?! (my marks- why not c5?) now he give 8. f3?! (my marks) and now instead of c5 for black he give just exf3?! Nxf3 and continue in showing the game until move 14 and than he claims for white advantage.
that phenomenon that he just showing a game without any analayse of the sidelines is all over the book and is annoying!

So, I can bring much more analyse for my bad fortune Sad (I'm little more than 2200 elo and I plays against GM's So If I found a lot of mistakes so easily so how can I use It against a GM?!)

Agreed.  Examples are fine and I'd appreciate it if you posted them!

One or two concrete lines is completely fair game.

Carlsen playing it against Kramnik in the Tal Memorial is good publicity. The downside being that it may have rewritten the theory.

I agree, looking forward to this. More familiar with his brother Nick, but IM strength is nothing to sneeze at. Hopefully he will keep up the tradition of fine English chess authors.
