Two weeks have passed, the nominations so far are:

  • Playing 1.e4, volumes 2 and 3 by John Shaw (Quality Chess),
    Leningrad Dutch DVD's from Pruijssers & Williams,
    John Shaws two 1.e4 books: 'Sicilian main lines' and 'French defence  and Sicilian Sidelines',
    Chigorin bible by Sokolov and Sokolov (?),
    Bc4 Against the Open Games, Alexander Delchev, Chess Stars,
    First Steps: 1.e4 e5 by John Emms,
    The Modernized Reti by Demuth,
    Trompowsky Attack, Dmitry Kryakvin, Chess Stars,
    The Sicilian Najdorf by J & J Dojknas, Everyman Chess,
    How to Beat the Open Games, Sverre Johnsen,
    Grandmaster Repertoire: Queen's Indian Defence Michael Roiz


Any more? How shall I order the list, alphabetic?


Looks like you have the Shaw 1.e4 books there twice? There should probably be one entry for each of them.

I could nominate Keep it Simple: 1.e4 by Sielecki. I have only studied parts of it in electronic form, but I believe the contents is more or less the same as the book.

NB: The Chigorin Bible is by Sokolov and Salgado Lopez.

Nothing particularly excites me in that 2018 list. But for 2019, just give Matthew Sadler and Natasha Regan the award right now.

That means that there are no nominations for the following books on the original poll, unless I've made a mistake somewhere:

  • The Modernized Najdorf, The Modernized Nimzo and The Modernized Benko Gambit all by Pavlovic,
    Keep it Simple: 1.e4 - Sielecki,
    Bologan's Caro-Kann - Bologan,
    The Art of the Tarrasch Defence - Bezgodov,
    The Full English Opening - Hansen,
    The Modern English, 1.c4 e5 - Georgiev & Semkov,
    Play 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6! - Kornev,
    The Modernized Caro-Kann - Fernandez,
    Play the Queen's Indian Defence - Solozhenkin

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'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.

I also nominate First Steps: 1.e4 e5 by John Emms. This book is certainly not going to contribute anything to theory, but it lays out a surprising amount of theory in such a way as to explain thoroughly the tactical and elementary strategic basis of the moves--in more detail and better, in fact, than any book I have seen on the Open Games, and perhaps on any opening. In fact, it has become my first choice as a book to recommend to those wanting to begin opening study under 1700. The fact that it defines some basic terms is not indicative of its great usefulness at non-beginner class-levels.

For some reason the GM Repertoire Queeb's Indian by Roïz is not on list ¿

I would vote for that one if it were on list.

If not I will vote for the Chigorin Bibel.

I nominate the Chigorin bible by Sokolov and Sokolov (!). I very much like how the book is organized : 1st part is about historical and model games with lots of explanations, 2nd part is about hard-core engine assisted theory

Sorry. I meant two weeks each for proposal and voting. And start of the topic should not be on 1.1.

I think 3+ weeks is a more manageable suggestion, and it should start later to begin with

A book published shortly before christmas will have had 3-4 weeks total to be read if the voting starts mid-January, which might very well be barely enough to work through the first chapter, let alone read the entire book and form a real opinion on it.

I dislike the way that this has been run the past few years.  At a minimum, I think that we need to:

1. Have a thread started by someone in an official position of some kind (Mr. Kosten himself, another forum administrator, etc).
2. Solicit nominations and have members second those nominations, as we have in the past.
3. Have ending dates for both the nomination process and actual voting clearly posted when we begin the process.

I would personally also:

4. Limit voting to registered members, perhaps to those with a minimum number of posts if possible. It wouldn't have to be very restrictive, even simply 10 lifetime posts would be enough to prevent someone from having friends make accounts to vote for a particular book, for instance.

Ok, that's fine by me. If IM_serious doesn't mind I will delete the poll, and then we can start anew with nominations (in this thread, why not?)
How much time do we need for nominations and voting?
Regarding point 4, I propose that I clean up the members list and delete all who have never posted, and I can also stop accepting new members during the voting period.

How about adding John Shaws two 1.e4 books: 'Sicilian main lines' and 'French defence  and Sicilian Sidelines'.

I can't actually see how to add extra options (and I thought the Administrator was omnipotent!) maybe we should make some more suggestions and start a new poll?

It's strange to start with a long list from just one user. What sort of democracy is that?

Perhaps delegative democracy fits:

I have read it, and it definitely should be.

But it's not an opening book. That has always been a requirement here I believe.

I was wondering if it is possible to nominate a nonbook opening product. I recently purchased the Leningrad Dutch DVD's from Pruijssers & Williams. It is really excellent, so I would like to nominate it!

It's strange to start with a long list from just one user. What sort of democracy is that?

In previous years users have nominated one or two favorites each, and this has led to the best of the year being represented in the poll. It works; why change it?

And the poll should obviously not be open until all the nominees are in, that even gives those on the initial list an unfair advantage! Please delete the poll and start over by asking for nominations.

I have read it, and it definitely should be.

But it's not an opening book. That has always been a requirement here I believe.

Playing 1.e4, volumes 2 and 3 by John Shaw (Quality Chess) were published in 2018 and presumably deserve to be included on this list.

Opening Repertoire: The Sicilian Najdorf by J & J Dojknas (Everyman Chess) has a 2018 publication date, although I'm not sure whether it was available to buy before Jan 2019. Do we have a convention for such cases? (The book looks very good so far, by the way.)

I don't know, but I can always modify the poll if necessary.

ChessPub Book of the Year 2018

Can users add to the list?

It seems I've already forgotten how this works.

Moderators: If this is incorrect, go ahead and delete it.
