Unfortunaly there is no  given improvments over whites forced draw line.

"17 Qh4 A quiet draw offer." "19..  kh8 and a draw was agreed in Shirov- Giri Hoogeveen 2014"

I have actually met it myself in many internet blitz games via a Caro Kann move order and many white players played this line even in unrated games.


Thanks! I guess I won't be playing that line as Black then. Maybe I'll try 4.e3 b6 or some other line.

Does the author show any ways for Black to avoid a perpetual in the Karpov system? I've seen some lines where White can draw, if he wants, by playing Bxf6 and checking on g5 and f6 with his queen.

Interesting that he recommends

4 f3 c5
4 a3 Bxc3 5 bxc3 Nc6!?

when they can transpose in case of 4 a3 Bxc3 5 bxc3 c5 6.f3 (as I played as Black last Sunday) Smiley

In general, what do you think about the book? High standards as usual in QC works?

thx !

This is a book I was planning to acquire when it was announced, but lately everybody is playing London systems against me, or systems with no c4 at all. So I think that for the moment with my actual sources (Bologan video series primarily, Gustaffsson video series and Emms Move by Move book) I am ok.


Yeah those are good Nimzo sources. I was wondering, what do you play against 3.Nf3 and what sources do you use?


I play the Ragozin nowadays. With Ramirez DVD as primarily source. I have also the new QC Pert's book, which I am not digested entirely yet. But I think Alejandro Ramirez DVD is enough to play confidently the Ragozin.

Salut,

First look indicates regular QC standard. The author also shows why certains move was recommended in some positions and also shows a couple of TNs.
