I will close this in a couple of weeks or so

Maybe I will leave it for another couple of weeks, to give more time to read all the 2018 books?

That was published this year? Then I second the nomination. I've been going through it on Forward Chess, comparing it to (print) Marin and Bologan. I love the format--for each section, a memorable game, then an outline of the main line, then a tree of variations. Seems to strike a great balance between being an indigestible tome and being light on detail. The lines are not too computer-y, despite what the blurb says.


Yes, it's my favorite of the many 1...e5 repertoire books that have come out in recent years.

It wouldn't be a BOTY thread if we didn't spend more time discussing procedure than we do discussing the actual books  Smiley

it's also why we usually wait a little longer to start the polls, so that people have had a chance to read those books that came out in November or December.

I can always extend the period for nominations.

We've always used the copyright date for the first printing in the past.  There has to be some hard and fast cutoff; it's also why we usually wait a little longer to start the polls, so that people have had a chance to read those books that came out in November or December.
