The biggest problem with the 2.g3-English is: It's very popular today...

I bought the DVD in the weekend and saw the first couple of chapters/lessons yesterday. I really enjoyed it and I think and hope that this combined with Marin is excellent for 2100 players.

It's remarkable to me that very few authors even try to recommend an approach other than 2.g3 at all - this approach is my favorite way to play too so I don't necessarily mind, but it's sort of bizarre nonetheless.


A book like "Play the French" about 1.c4 2.Sc3 / Sf3 would be a good idea.

Nowadays the same feels true for 1.e4 and 1.d4 too though. It's remarkable to me that very few authors even try to recommend an approach other than 2.g3 at all - this approach is my favorite way to play too so I don't necessarily mind, but it's sort of bizarre nonetheless.

Thanks.

I find it strange that CB does so little to promote their own products. Some more info on the contents should be useful.
  

Don't check me with no lightweight stuff.

Many Marin-Lines, but against 6. e3 in the Reversed Dragon. In my opinion the DVD by Lorin D'Costa is a good introduction, but as Jonathan Carlstedt said in his English-Repertoire-book: If you want an (theoretical) edge, The English Opening ist the wrong choice!
