Maybe you are right. But there are still some places in the book where analysis by another author is given without any attribution. At least the books are listed in the bibliography. Wink

Not surprising the comments to Qxc6 are so similar - really not sure what else you could say about Qxc6 in that position Smiley
(The move itself vs bxc6 is of course much less obvious.).

As a standalone the book makes a well organised and researched impression.

I´m especially happy to see coverage of the lines
A) 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ Nc6 4.0-0 Bd7 5.Re1 Nf6 6.c3 a6 7.Bf1 and
B) 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.g3, while the option of
C) 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ Nd7 4.d4 Nf6 5.Nc3 (instead of Jones´ 5.0-0), retaining the possibility to castle long in some lines, also looks interesting.

Thanks to the tree structure and the index of variations the book is easy to work with.

However, there are also some things I find annoying, like the author stating the obvious, e.g. after black plays ...g6 in some position I have read countless times something like "Black prepares the development of his bishop to g7."

Also I´m under the impression the book lacks somewhat in proper attribution of lines analysed in earliers works of other authors (Jones, Greet).

A strange example I have found:

* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
*

Here Greet in "Experts on the Anti-Sicilian" wrote after black´s next move 12...Qxc6: "Black wants to retain the possibility of ...b5."

And this is what Kornev has to say: "Black preserves the possibility to play b7-b5."

I have found some cases where the analysis of other authors is used without giving credit.

There might be some other things to critize but overall I think the book is a good addition to Jones´ earlier work.

Aha. I liked his d4 first volume.

Despite my cynicism this might be worth a look.

Is Kornev the same guy doing the 1.d4 repertoire book?

I have tried Greet's idea in a correspondence game, and did not get much of anything- Black basically was comfortable throughout the game.
[pgn][Event "WC-2015-S-00008"]
[Site "Lechenicher SchachServer"]
[Date "2014.01.13"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Frendzas, Panayotis"]
[Black "Daurelle, Herve"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[WhiteElo "2381"]
[BlackElo "2279"]
[PlyCount "69"]
[EventDate "2014.01.18"]

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. Bb5+ Bd7 4. Bxd7+ Qxd7 5. c4 Nf6 6. Nc3 g6 7. d4 cxd4 8.
Nxd4 Bg7 9. b3 Nc6 10. Bb2 O-O 11. O-O Rfd8 12. Rc1 Rac8 13. Rc2 e6 14. Nxc6
Qxc6 15. Qe2 a6 16. Rd1 Qc7 17. g3 Ne8 18. Kg2 Qa5 19. a4 Rc6 20. Rd3 Rdc8 21.
Qd1 h5 22. Rcd2 Qc7 23. Ne2 Bxb2 24. Rxb2 b5 25. axb5 axb5 26. cxb5 Rc5 27. b4
Rxb5 28. Nc3 Rb6 29. b5 Qb7 30. Rb3 Nf6 31. f3 Qb8 32. Rd4 Nd7 33. Qd2 Rc5 34.
Rb2 Kg7 35. Ra2 {Draw agreed} 1/2-1/2



Should be a slight edge for White, not much admittedly, but its a boring solid line.

12.Re1 intending Nd5 forces Black straight into the ...e6 structuresw. Well not really but you know what I mean.

Yeah looks like they updated it, or the table of contents. That's a good thing. Now we'll have to see how it compares to Jones' early work on basically the exact same topic.

My only issue with this book is that it leaves you hanging on 2...e6.

Apparently it doesn't. There are chapters on each of Black's second-move alternatives, including one on 2...e6 3.g3.

I have also tried Jones' idea against 2...d6 (the one with 0-0 and Qe2) and did not manage to achieve any advantage against the modern ...g5 plan.

My only issue with this book is that it leaves you hanging on 2...e6. If a reader wants a repertoire, it feels like that's the major snag - it's not awful to figure out 2...g6, 2...a6, 2...Nf6, etc, by yourself, but 2...e6 is a large complex in and of itself.

Still, I look forward to hearing what he has to say - in my opinion, he has a lot of measure up to vs. the Jones book, which I thought was pretty good, and Greet's chapter on the Moscow in Experts vs. the Anti-Sicilians.

Another book another dollar.

Does sound interesting mind. But there is already a glut of material on the Bb5 systems.

chess-stars.com has announced a new book on Bb5 Sicilians, presumably a repertoire book for white !?
