Schandorff's book on the CK from QC isn't current enough?


For some of the sidelines it probably is still ok, however, for the Classical and Advance you're setting yourself up for some painful losses if you play against a booked up opponent. Houska's book is good and more relevant but I would like to see someone tackle the Advance head on in the 3...Bf5 lines. I won't continue along this line of query though as I don't want to derail the thread.

I got my book few days ago, looks good so far. Most likely switching from Caro-Kann to Breyer next season.

Whilst we're suggesting things; I'd also love to see a "Playing the Caro-Kann" book by QC .

Playing 1.d4 d5 Classical Repertoire for Black is also a good idea, I hope the TMB and or Lasker is considered, the way Kramnik plays it these days with an early ...Nbd7 deserves some attention too, I can't think of any repertoire book that recommends it. Kasimdzhanov briefly covers it in 3 video clips, for his ChessBase DVD "Trends in modern openings (2014)", he doesn't go into much depth though.

We are listening guys...keep asking for the "Playing 1.d4 d5 A Classical Repertoire" and you never know...it might come true!  Cheesy

Thanks for the support and really nice words. Much appreciated.

It would be great if you could write another book for Black: Playing 1.d4 d5 A classical Repertoire


You've got

Dear Nikos,
first of all I want to congratulate you for your new book. I' am working my way through it and for now I liked most the chapters about 2 Knight Defence. Interestingly it was the variation where I was at most sceptical in advance.....
Really impressive is your bibliography....there are all books and stuff you could think of...great!
I' am looking forward to read more and play some if not all of your recommendations.

One thing: It would be great if you could write another book for Black: Playing 1.d4 d5 A classical Repertoire ( also with recommendations for Black other than 2.c4, because I feel that your choices are practical....more than others.) Is there a chance for that?

Thanks for a very interesting book!
Paul

I believe Bologan says that he thinks 8. ...Ng4 doesn't quite equalize and so he recommends 8. ... Nd5. Seems to me, based on recent games involving 9.Nf3 Bd6
10. O-O Nf4 when both Nc3 and Re1 seem very playable.


Bologan recommends 8. ...Ng4 and isn't keen on 8. ... Nd5 because of 9. h4!.

Nikos recommends 8. ... Nd5 and presents a new approach after 9. h4!.

My thought is that Bd3 is now arguably the mainline,and somewhat sticky, too.

Apart from a middle game book, I haven't gotten any new books/DVD's in a year and a half. I'm leaning towards buying an e5 book ...I have Davies from long ago, and  Lysyj's book. I am trying to figure out if I should just stop at Bologan's or maybe pick this up as well.

So, of course, I'm curious if he goes for 8. ...Nd5 or something else.


I have both. I find this new one much easier to follow. Bologan's is just a really wacky layout. Who on earth conjured that one up? Just horrid. My favourite format (as chess player and as a professional educator) is that of Chess Stars btw.
But I digress.

In terms of lines, I do not know enough to offer informed comment about the Bd3 line, tbh, sorry.

I think Bologan actually recommends 8...Ng4.

No discussion here on the Two Knights 8. Bd3 recommendation?

I have it. Looks nice, I'm amazed that you managed to fit so much into under 400 pages.

I suppose that means analysis is thin in some variations?

Personally I don't mind as I also have both Bologon's books and Open Games for Black by Chess Stars and the Opening repertoire in the Open Games by Everyman. I'll pick and choose the lines I like from all those sources.

It's now out on Forward Chess.

Congratulations Nikos. This will be the first book I have bought in a while.
