A review and annex of Nikolaos book can now be found on my blog: https://chess-brabo.blogspot.com/2018/03/e4-e5-openingbook.html


Great games and a reminder that there is more to an opening than just the opening. I've previously played out to move 17 in the last game and thought the black position looked rather solid.


Where are the pgn files on the Blog?

Below left each game you can find 2 icons.
The most left one allows you to activate/ deactivate an engine which is a fantastic feature.
The next one (3 points connected in a shape of the "less" sign) pops up a new window.

At the new window you will find at the top left a download  icon. If you press that then you see the pgn file. For downloading that pgn file, press the orange download button at the bottom.

That being said, actually, I wonder about 6 d3 (instead of 6 Re1) 6...b5 7 Bb3 d6 8 Bd2!?, and now on 8...0-0, you could play 9 Re1, transposing into Caruana's system. Alternatively, you might be able to start with 9 h3!?, to avoid the ...Bg4 stuff, and then play Re1 etc. I guess 8...Bg4!? might be an independent option.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this Bd2 should only be available against the Marshall move order, right, as after 7...d6 8 d3, you just have 8...Na5, "trapping" the Bishop.

Hi Nikos,

I really like your 1.d4 d5 book, so one of my next tasks will be to go through your Playing 1.e4 e5-book, because I need a solid line as backup, similar to 1.d4 d5 as backup system for my King´s Indian defense. I am not sure if I should take the Breyer as Main-Variation, I blitzed against the line that brabo mentions in the post #96 and this is quite annoying. Do you have any hint what to play against this idea? I would really like to pick up the Breyer, because my pet opening is Modern/Pirc and the Breyer leads to some structures that I am familiar with. Otherwise I am thinking about picking up the Marshal Attack.
Additionally I would like to ask for your opinion of the move 9.Bd2 in the game Caruana-Aronian, candidates tournaments 2018 Berlin. It avoids your 9…Na5 idea after 9.a3.
Thanks you very much and keep up the great work you are doing!

Playing 1.d4 d5 is a fine book. Well done, Ametanoitos. 27 books in the bibliography, including Scheerer's 2011 work on the BDG. Ten pages on the BDG recommending the Euwe Defence. As we all know, Euwe expressed his dismay about the variation's name in a letter to Diemer.  Smiley

Playing 1.d4 d5 is even better I think. Most awesome repertoire book I own. I like that it's not just lines but also explanation of plans. Especially the exchange chapter. I always felt that the plans were very easy for white and black struggles to find a plan, making it an annoying opening. After reading the book I love facing the QGD exchange! I feel like I understand d-pawn games much better in general. I hope this guy is going to write more (opening) books.

I just ordered both of the Ntirlis books, Playing 1.e4 e5 and Playing 1.d4 d5. Even if I don't want to play the Breyer or his main line in the QGD, the rest of the material will be extremely useful to me. I really like how much space he devotes to all the non-main lines. I like the idea of having both an aggressive repertoire and a more solid one. So I'll have the Sicilian Najdorf and NID/QID as one combo, and 1.e4 e5 and the QGD as another. Looking forward to delving into those two books!

What I was looking at was more like a still photograph of a bird in flight than a photograph of a medieval castle.

How is this book (Ntirlis, not Bologan) regarding lines against the Ruy when White avoids the Breyer? I am talking about the exchange, early d3/a4 quiet lines, etc., all of which seem to be popular at my level.


In my view Ntirlis´ coverage is great. The book is a must have for every serious 1.e4 e5 player, even if you don´t want to play the Breyer. But reading the book might convince you otherwise.  Wink

I am a Zaitsev player and intend to stay that way, but currently I no not have any materials on hand which cover these deviations from the mainline Ruy, and considering that there are often similarities between the Breyer and Zaitsev systems, I figure this book could be quite useful for me...

Cheers!

I think I’ll order the Ntirlis book. Looks very good and even if I don’t end up playing the Breyer, the majority of the book will still be very useful. I have both of the Bologan books and while they may be exceptional, they seem overwhelming to me.
