I don't have the book and can't answer BobbyDigital80's question; but, lest anyone be misled by my original post, the anti-repetition line offered after 9.h3 Bb7 10.d4 is not Johnsen and Johannessen's 10...Qd7!? (as originally stated) but 10...Nd7. Is this what the blurb means by "the super-trendy Svidler Variation"? I know Svidler has played it, as has Karpov.


I think the super-trendy thing is (or was) meeting 11. Nbd2 in the Zaitsev with 11...ed 12. cd Re8.  (10...Nd7 seems to be the opposite of trendy ...)

Does anyone have this book and is it any good? I'm interested in which lines Solozhenkin recommends. I saw what the basic lines are in the chapter titles but I wanted to know slightly more!

I wish they had chosen the Breyer or Marshall Attack. May still buy it as the stuff on the way to Zaitsev will still be relevant.

Chess Stars' "future plans" page shows a black repertoire book by Solozhenkin. Planned publication date is November. The contents page is already on the site. The book seems to offer a complete repertoire against the Ruy Lopez, centred on the Zaitsev, with 10...Qd7 (12...Qd7, etc) as a back-up in case White goes for the repetition. So it looks like a nice companion to the excellent Gambit book by Johnsen and Johannessen.
