At this point we have to suppose that there is going to be some delay...

By the way, Schachversand recently had the Moskalenko book as coming this week, but now they have changed it to early July.

I checked his line vs the Nimzo against Sielecki's repertoire:

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. f3 c5 5. d5 O-O 6. e4 d6 7. Nge2 b5 8. Ng3
bxc4 9. Bxc4 Qa5 10. Bd2 Ba6

And now he improves with:

11. a3 Bxc4 12. axb4 Qxb4 13. Ra4 Qb3 14. Qxb3 Bxb3 15. Ra3 Bc4

Unfortunately 12 .. Qxb4 appears to be just bad, and something like Qc7 is better.

It looks like it doesn't cover Roiz's line (d5 d6 e4 b5) at all.

Against the Benko I see:

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 b5 4. cxb5 a6 5. f3 axb5 6. e4 Qa5+ 7. Bd2 b4 8. Na3
d6 9. Nc4 Qd8 10. Bd3 e6 11. dxe6 Bxe6 12. Ne2

He gives d5 here, I have Nc6 in my repertoire but Be7 is maybe even better. In any case let's see how we refute d5, which is the most common move:

exd5 Nxd5 14. O-O Be7

He says this is better for white due to the weak c4 square, lead in development and the potential passer on the a file. The Bd2 and Ne2 don't look so hot to me though.

15. Qc2 Nc6 16. Be4 and now he gives Rc8 which is probably bad.

Most Benko players would be happy to get this on the board, I think.

Ah! The black queen is missing from my PGN because I copied it from the Everyman PGN. No wonder it wasn’t in my database.

Thanks a lot kylemeister!

i'm quite looking forward to the Moskalenko repertoire. i went through his book 'Revolutionize Your Chess' in a bit of detail.

his chapters on the Nimzo and 4 Pawns KID were nicely done, and i remember thinking that it would be great if he did a whole repertoire along the same lines. hopefully this is that book.

The new Moskalenko cover is rad - imo, the best chessbook cover in quite some time.

thanks kylemeister. I tried to answer but I got the moves wrong anyway. I saw your answer and was able to quickly delete my post. Everyman's pdf sample correctly has a black queen on d8. Their pgn sample is missing the black queen.

In the PDF introduction to Lakdawala's book, he gives the following position from the Meran Semi-Slav a digram. Does anyone know how this position arises?

MNb, I agree with your post except for two small things.

MNb wrote on 03/22/19 at 10:14:30:

The opponent also cares about the 100 Elo.

I do care a bit about those 100 points, as they would put me on the brink of the FM title... and probably clinch it eventually by a random tournament overperformance.

This can become complicated. It's typical for amateurs to stick with an opening that is not serving them well simply because they like it.

Among the many different ways to do this, one approach I've seen many times is improving players sticking to a limited repertoire while reaching for the FM and IM titles, maybe just discarding some dubious openings on the way. But then if they're going for the GM title, most people branch out to be less predictable.

Which makes me think as long as I limit my (Dutch) Leningrad adventures there's no pressing need to master the Nimzo-Indian at this point. Though being bad at IQP positions may well be seen as a fundamental flaw, so studying them and mixing in some openings that feature them is still a good idea in general.

Of course amateurs should keep the enjoyment in chess. But fun is such an individual thing. I find winning more fun than losing, as do most players. But for me, analyzing afterwards (win or lose) is actually even more fun than playing. My friends joke about this, that's their fun. In terms of study I enjoy learning something new, it could be an opening, and I enjoy it even more when I can use my new knowledge to win a game.

The right thing to do is of course to learn these position types instead of running away from them.

If you're a professional, yes. If your most important goal is to get a rating as high as possible, yes. Otherwise it might be the wrong thing to do.

Stigma wrote on 03/21/19 at 23:23:29:
But when I can play fianchetto-based defences instead and get both interesting, unbalanced positions and good results, sticking with the Nimzo would involve a sacrifice of short-term results for (hopefully) long-term gains.

An eternal discussion.
Sacrificing fun on the short term for long-term gains you don't seem to enjoy that much either doesn't sound like a smart deal in my ears. Sacrifing 100 ELO points (who cares about it anyway, except you yourself?!) for years of chess pleasure is a much better deal, don't you think? And it's even questionable if you do sacrifice those ELO points, because it's typical for amateurs to perform better in positions they like - even in the long term.
In corr. chess i've 5/8 with 4.e3 (exclusively as White). That's unsurprising, given our very different preferences.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.
