I remember that it was years ago supposed to be a Queen's Gambit repertoire book for White, and now I see that it is QGD for Black. So maybe some change was made in between.


If you search "Opening Repertoire The Queens Gambit"  on the Everyman website it says "Grandmaster Damian Lemos presents a repertoire for White in the Queen’s Gambit" so it still looks if it is from white's prospective.

It may be out next year – is about as definite as you'll get.

In that I seriously doubt that the books in the release date schedule with ?? in the proposed publication date column will  be published at all. So much time has now elapsed since two of these three books were originally announced and now it looks like the Reti is heading down a similar path delay wise.


That Play 1. Cf3 book has been "coming soon" for a long time, that is true. But the others like the Réti book I had never heard much about it before anyway, even though it should be an interesting one.

However that QGD book, unless my memory is failing and I confused books, I remember that it was years ago supposed to be a Queen's Gambit repertoire book for White, and now I see that it is QGD for Black. So maybe some change was made in between.

OK, I have been waiting for this book.  So What is the update on the ETA for this book ?


I'll be able to give an ETA once I've dealt with all of the problem lines. There are still a few left, but they are dwindling over time, ie: a headache in the Anglo-Queen's Indian just got squared away.

Even in positions that are admittedly equal, I intend to offer things that require Black to work hard to prove it.

When I stop playing whack-a-mole with problem lines.

Writing a repertoire book for White is a fool's errand.


My heart goes out to you, BP.  I know writing a book like schandorf's can be tough.  He eagerly and energetically tries, bless his heart, to find a line where White pushes really hard for the edge, even if he admits that with correct play Black can defend and hold the draw.

IM Watson, in his "Strategic Opening Repertoire " for white, takes a mixed route.  He does try to find an edge for White or he takes the route of providing a rich strategic struggle where it is not that easy for Black to have an easy life.   I have used his suggestions for a whole lot of correspondence games, and I enjoy winning positions where I know the strategic understanding will trump over any player who just let's his engine do all the work, or who gets involved but really does not know how to handle the issues presented to him strategically as Black.

So, BP, I hope you give us something along these lines.  I will not hold you to anything if on a given line or lines you do not end up with an edge for White.   I am happy with just giving me enough tools to really pose some issues for Black to solve but where engines are likely to help black very little.

1.Nf3 h6 is covered. It isn't that bad and scores well enough. I made no attempt to refute it.

However, it didn't take long to find continuations in which I felt White to be better. I have other fish to fry at this point.

Not sure about 2.e4
Gives Black the possibility of 2...c5!?

Yeah, quite so. In my youth I planned to write a book: to show a forced win for White in the King's Gambit. Where to start with such an ambitious project? I decided to do it Jaenisch's way, starting with a refutation of the worst black lines. But when I looked at 2...Qf6, I learned a lesson: it is hard work to kill a chess opening beyond any doubt.

1.Nf3 h6 2.d4/e4 and white is better or is this an insider joke?

We will have to wait for Bryan's work until we know. I agree that the position after 2.d4/e4 may be good for White, but it isn't legal to move both pawns at once.

It is a bit I guess. Stefan rather likes defending marginal seeming openings. Rather good at it too Smiley

Of all cities in the world, why Pforzheim?!  Undecided Wink

The opening sequence I call after Pforzheim isn't 1.Nf3 alone, of course.

I dont play any of those openings but i do love buying chess books and would be interested in that one  Cheesy

Well I'll buy it if you ever do.  I noticed that your Semi-Slav book is now available in electronic format, so that I can pick that up.  I'm still down in Brazil.

I imagine that it's easier to write a repertoire book for Black; if you can't always prove full equality, that's OK because you're Black, after all.  Not to get too far off-topic, but any thought of doing a Nimzo/QID repertoire book in the future?
