For example, our analysis Yearbook 105 are copied but cites the source. What problem exists?, None ..... My problem may be that someone will forward to playing our news! and that is not problem! I will play and other as it has been, the ideas are free, chess is free

Henris cited in the literature sources and in many of the lines quoted the author. I do not see much of a problem, it is a very good book from my point of view. I think you need to put aside personal vanities and watch the chess players of the same virtues, which are many

I emailed the publisher and they have apologised, and I'm happy with that. Smiley

What amateurish copying.

If he wanted to rip off somebody else and get away with it he should of course be lifting chunks out of My Great Predecessors.  If he did that they'd give him a newspaper column.


The Golombek Gambit only works once.

Glenn Flear is currently reviewing the book, and was apparently shocked to find that there were several pages where his comments from chesspublishing.com were reproduced without any acknowledgment. Angry
“Opening the e-file seems to create some practical problems for White, but Tikkanen doesn’t panic”, or “Black makes a nuisance of himself” are actually Glenn's words not his...
Much of pages 454-456 has been lifted from a game Glenn analysed in the March 2013 update.
There are other examples where Harris has just changed one or two words...
I suppose copying other people's work would explain how he could write so many pages! Roll Eyes

Apparently it seems that Mr Henris is mentioned on Edward Winter's site Chess Notes (http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/extra/copying.html) with a 100 per cent copy of an article by Paul Szeligowski on the Hugh Myers Defense 1.c4 g5, previously published in Myers Openings Bulletin! Sad

How 'wonderful'.

The thing which confuses me is the idea that anyone should feel it to be worth writing so many pages about this opening. You could do a pretty thorough survey of a really major opening in less.

Yes that other line was John Cox's recommendation in his repertoire book. I like 4 a3 slightly more as my opps don't even know that they have to play a5 so I'm just a pawn up for nothing + all the advantages in activity that comes from the line.

@Hadron: Bronznik and Schandorff (in 2009 at least) both follow Topalov-Morozevich Monte Carlo 2005 (rapid) where Topa was just winning before drifting off.

9.Qxd4 is a good move, but I like the queenless middlegame after 5.Nbd2 (!) Nge7 6.Nb3 Nf5 7.e4 dxe3 8.Qxd8+ Nxd8 9.fxe3 even better
the doubled e-pawns are a bit unorthodox but not easy to neutralise


Interesting line that. Had a look at it and even though I like the look of Blacks position when you investigate it further it is not so easy to handle.

9.Qxd4!? as played by Karpov is an excellent practical choice, maybe not best theoretically, but just swap those Queens and simplify. Far more practical than trying to bust the opening.

personally I'm not really convinced by their main line against 5...Nge7: 6.b4 Ng6 7.Bb2 a5 8.b5 Ncxe5 9.Nxe5 Nxe5 10.e3 Be6 11.Bxd4 Nxc4 12.Qc2 Nd6 13.Bd3 Qg5 14.f4 Qh4 15.g3 Qh3 16.e4 Rd8 17.f5 Bc4 18.Nc3 and now they don't say what white is supposed to do against 18...Be7


You mean like in this one:

600 pages on this opening, that must be a record! Does anyone have this book? Does it provide an antidote to Schandorff/Bronznik?


Specifically sir, just what is Schandorff/Bronznik's recommendation?
Thank you.
Hadron.

I'm reminded again of something Short wrote recently, approximately "The biggest fallacy in chess is the quasi-religious belief in the primacy of the opening."

I can't believe that someone wrote 600 pages on this opening.

Let's do one of those crowd-funding things and send a copy to kingscrusher. I always see him play this in his YouTube videos.
