PDF extract is up. Looks good!

In short, there is no early g3, which facilitates transpositions to d4. I have to say that I'm happy to see opportunities to transpose to non-fianchetto d4 lines. This seems to crop up in the suggested repertoire, with transpositions into the semi-Tarrasch and Petrosian King's Indian.

Looks great from the extract. I'll likely wait until the eBook is released before pulling the trigger.

Why not take advantage of the central majority straight away with [1 c4 d5?! 2 cxd5 Qxd5] 3 Nc3 followed by d4 and e4? If 3...Qa5, then simply 4 d4 Nf6 5 Nf3 and then Bd2 at some point looks like it gives White a big advantage.

Nc3 can't be stopped and will be played sooner or later winning a tempo. The question was whether to fianchetto or not in this open position.

In the case of 1. c4 d5 2. cd Qxd5, I wonder why you wouldn't be inclined to play 3. Nc3.

IM Cummings, out of interest does the book have a line against 1.c4 d5? Probably not very good but potentially annoying. I would probably play 2.cxd5 and aim for g3 gaining a tempo sooner or later on the Queen on d5. Potentially this doesn't fit in the books idea of not fianchettoing so curious to see what is recommended.

Basing an English repertoire product on non-g3 lines?  Having White transpose to other major openings (not English/Reti*) in a number of cases?  The horror!
(OK, that's what I imagine some will think, but not me.)


*random historical tidbit:  I was reminded of the late American IM Kim Commons referring to "my usual English-Reti junk."

That's a good thing surely? Gives you options Smiley

That's true, but I don't like those options. Besides 1.c4 is most of the time not my first move... Wink

Is it going to be via a Kosten move order, or will a knight come out before g3?


When I read this I thought something like, "Well of course White doesn't have to go for g3 in the English, but I suppose the book will probably have him doing so."
I was wrong of course ...

Thanks for your interest in the book!

It has been sent to the printer so should be on track for the schedule quoted by gillbod.

I'm also told that the PDF excerpt will be posted on the Everyman website soon.

Actually, the answer to when is quite answerable: Everyman lists the book as coming out this December in Europe, and Feb in the US. Pretty soon!
