I have the book, Tay is a good analyst and seems to be very objective. I think the Schlieman would be great for a club player, and that you could probably spring it on titled players with some success. Again Tay is honest that there are some problems in some lines, but the book is well written and was mostly current when it was published.

I'm sure there is more than one Jaenisch player here, perhaps one of them will weigh in. In the meantime there is a review at chesscafe which may help you decide.

Updates on what? Junior Tay's book came out last year, if that's what you meant?


Would anyone mind to share your thoughts or review on this book?   Would it be a good book for a club player just learning the Schliemann/jaenisch?

Appreciate your time.

Everyman's new series "Disreputable Weapons" should sell well. I would buy the Open Games volume.


I guess I should hurry up and finish it then Smiley

My main issue is in what to play against 4 Ng5 in the Two Knights. I'm currently struggling as Black in a couple of online Traxler games, so it might depend on how I do in an ongoing Ulvestad thematic.

Well, at least point us in the right direction for the Scotch, Spanish Four Knights, and Vienna (Steinitz, Rubinstein, and Frankenstein-Dracula, perhaps).


It's a book on disreputable openings so, as regards those particular variations, look to:
Scotch 4...Qh4
Three Knights 3...Bc5
Vienna 2...Nc6 without ...Nf6

Yes, I'm still working on it. You can expect it in about 17 years probably Huh

Well, maybe not so long, but I've only finished one chapter so far: on 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Nf3 h5.

There were two books about Jänisch Ruy López that I bought few years ago I think. I cannot even remember when. But I know that author's name was Roman and surname was long and startte with "J". I cannot even remember where I bought her. Then I realise that it were those books mentioned above.  Cheesy

It was one book theory one book ideas, I remember quite small books. I think that it would be good to complement with Tay's Everyman book.

I read your above comment to imply that you were working on aggressive ways (as with the Jaenisch) to meet the quieter, non-Spanish lines. I was curious about those lines (I know that you're a major proponent of the Traxler).

I always wondered how to combine an aggressive, tactical style with the Jänisch in combination with the strategic openings like the Giuoco Pianissimo or Four Knights should White be a non Ruy Lopez player.


Actually, I'm working on something about that at the moment Smiley

Giuoco Pianissimo: head for either ...d5 or ...f5.

http://www.ianchessgambits.com/two-knights-defence-4d3-4nc3.html

Four Knights: 5.Bb5 Bc5!? is tactical but risky.

Of course there are quiet variations left, like the Scottish Four Knights.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

I bought these two books (book 1 on theory and book 2 on tactics) a whilst ago. If I remember well, they were not expensive. I am new to this opening, and since I really do not know the theory, I comment much about it. But the books look interesting overall, I would say a good purchase.

I do not know much about the Jänisch, but I always wondered how to combine an aggressive, tactical style with the Jänisch in combination with the strategic openings like the Giuoco Pianissimo or Four Knights should White be a non Ruy Lopez player.
