Also thumbs up from me!

Very nice to see our questions answered (even if it means that 10.h3! is indeed strong and Black has problems)!

@Tony: there is a discussion going on about the Accelerated Dragon where we established that Chris Ward so far has not looked at a very critical attempt by White in the Classical Maroczy, namely 10.h3: https://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?num=1552746098/30#30

It would be great if he could cover this in one of the future updates, I think there should be no shortage of recent games.

I've only just noticed this, I will ask Chris to look at it. Smiley


Great, thanks a lot Tony (and of course Chris as well)! The last update included two out of Black's three most common responses to 10. h3!?

The new "e4 others" update is there and I had a look at the lines about 4.h4 h5 5.Bg5.

Big thanks to Dan for this very interesting and inspirational analysis!

This was not commented on in the latest update. I agree that it would be very nice if this is included in a future update!

I will ask him Wink

Apparently, Daniel's  current thinking is that 6...Qxd4 is not at all clear, and he won't be recommending it in the 2nd edition of his book next year.
He may give some of his analysis next month.

I have some comments about the November update of the 1.e4 ... section.

While Daniel Fernandez' comments on the game Vucinic-Kobalia are excellent and on point, I was rather puzzled by his endorsement of 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Bf5 4.h4 h5 5.Bg5 in Takacz-Murzin.
The website says "My point in pairing these games is to claim that 5.Bg5 is a more accurate move-order. Unless he wants to play the idea of ...Qa5+ before White has exchanged light-squared bishops, there seems little alternative for fighting for equality other than 7...e6 8.Nd2 c5."

This line is known for some time now to be dubious and the reason is 5. ... Qb6 6.Bd3 Qd4:!, which is not mentioned in the ChessPublishing analysis, but to add to the confusion is recommended by Fernandez for Black in his Caro-Kann repertoire "The Modernized Caro-Kann".  Shocked

So either there are some things which Daniel doesn't want to reveal or he has just forgotten about the line.
Or this is a way to get some cheap points from future opponents  Grin

I often look at annotated games (here and elsewhere) and wonder about an obvious move which isn't even mentioned.

I just thought I'd give a quick example that I just noticed in the October KID update. If you look at the Gligoric Variation diagram (https://www.chesspublishing.com/content/9/index.htm#cla), it says that Black played 16...Bf5!? Now, my immediate thought was: why can't White capture on f5 and then on d5? So, I looked at the analysis and David has devoted a lot of space to all the many alternatives that have been tried in this position, but no mention of 17 Nxf5. On further inspection I see that absolutely no-one has played it (from 14 games), so I suppose it must be really bad!
After 17 Nxf5 Nxf5 18 Qxd5? obviously loses to 18...Qxd5 19 Nxd5 Bxb2, but what about 18 Nxd5, then? According to SF 18...Nfd4 19 Nc3 Qe7 is a little better for Black but it's not much after 20 Kg2.
This is a well-annotated game, with a lot of research and analysis using powerful tools, and yet ...
Incidentally, 18 f4 (after 17 Nxf5 Nxf5) might even be a bit better for White!

If I'm reading your answer, quoting exactly the sentence which you have wrote

That's just the point, I didn't write that sentence so it wasn't an exact quote.
Anyway, rather than just forwarding the messages, we will also send an acknowledgement that we've received it from now on.
Chris Ward has promised to send me his update this morning, and also promised to respond directly afterwards.

I just summarised how I understood your answer.
We have to use the 'Mark & quote' button to quote exactly what another member has actually written. As soon as we start 'quoting' what we thought they may have meant, or how we interpreted it, or in a way to further our own argument, then I'm afraid we are on the road to anarchy.

Frankly, I don't see your point. If I'm reading your answer, quoting exactly the sentence which you have wrote, and tell you how I (and some others) understood the answer, it's not a road to anarchy but a discussion.


Sitting in front of a desktop Mark&Quote works here.

For me it's a discussion, probably disagreeable for all participants. So it's better to stay cautious with evaluations.

If a subscriber sends a mail an answer about the arrival and the further procedure should be given (and a copy sent to the author of the section). Isn't this usual buisiness conduct, is it?

Apart I don't really get the difference between "Mark & Quote" and "Quote" anyway.

'Mark and Quote' allows you to select a part of a post and quote it in your reply – as I've just done here – while 'Quote' causes the entire post to appear in your reply.
