Of course, I forgot about a book that I found in my bookshelf today. Chess Explained: The Main Line Slav by Vigorito. It has coverage of the variation, and also gives an endorsement of Vigus main line.

Have you chess24 subscription? Unforttunately it is no book, but rather electronic, an e-book with video on a Classical Slaw repertoire by Markus Ragger, three sections on 7....Nb6:

No I haven't but thanks for the hint.

And you have Avrukh's GM1

I thought he recommends 4.e3 instead of 4.Nc3

I am also a Slaw-player, so I know this dilemma, what to choose against 6. Ne5. I actually play both 7...Qc7 and 7...Nb6. My personal opinion is that both are doing well theoretically and are of equal value, just a matter of taste. 7...Qc7 can be very sharp, 7...Nb6 usually a bit more solid and slower.

Have you chess24 subscription? Unforttunately it is no book, but rather electronic, an e-book with video on a Classical Slaw repertoire by Markus Ragger, three sections on 7....Nb6:

https://chess24.com/es/learn/advanced/ebook/slawische-verteidigung-ragger/13

The series is in German, so better "als du den Deutsch sprechen können, naturligtvis". But my German is not the best, and I have no problems watching the videos nor reading the e-books.

Edit: Oops, I saw that your location is Germany. So it should be fine Smiley

However, I currently aim to play according to Avrukh - GM17, i.e. the Morozevich line.

It's an interesting line, unfortunately I think white is better.
I will buy GM17 maybe I change my mind after studying  Wink Kramnik uses the line in Blitz and also Carlsen has played a slav with an early Na6, so it can't be too bad Wink

Cheers

There is Chesspub of course Smiley And you have Avrukh's GM1, but for the White side. I liked Vigus' book, much more than Sakaev's book. However, I currently aim to play according to Avrukh - GM17, i.e. the Morozevich line.

books and sources on the slav with 7...Sb6

I want to learn the following variation:
1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 dxc4 5. a4 Bf5 6. Ne5 Nbd7 7. Nxc4 Nb6 *

Sources, which I considered to buy:

Sakaev: "the complete Slav II "
Maybe a good choice, I read his analysis is quite well but the presentation is worse.

James Vigus "Play the Slav"
I own his book about the pirc(chessdevolpments...), I wasn't to impressed.

Lakdawala "The Slav Move by Move"
Seems to me it's more an introduction to the slav and maybe not best for stronger players.

Danielsen: An effective way of facing the 6.Ne5 slav in 60 Minutes
Seems interesting and I think I will buy the videos, anyone watched them and likes to share his/her impressions?

Are there any other good sources, maybe videos offered by chess24, chess.com or a good books.

Regards Tom
