It is strange...It would look like he's trying to give the solid players sharp lines and the sharp players solid lines. Except for that bit about the Benoni... Shocked

I used play the Petrosian as part of just such a varied-but-more-positional repertoire. I used to combine the Petrosian KID with the Leningrad Nimzo, the Bg5 (Lasker) Gruenfeld, the Bg5/Ne2 Exchange QGD, and the Bg5/e3 Benoni. Really, I could have designed a pinning 1.d4 2.c4 repertoire book ("Bg5: Pin Intended!").

Amazon has this bit:  "Lakdawala recommends lines with f2-f3 against the Nimzo-Indian, the Petrosian System against the King's Indian and the Flick Knife (f4 with Bb5+) against the Benoni."

A surprising combination, isn't it? When I think of a typical Petrosian KID player, I picture someone like ... Petrosian, or Cummings, whose English repertoire book is quite varied but probably on the positional side on average. While those other two lines are something for swashbuckling attackers ready for sharp and non-standard positions.

Maybe I'm overgeneralizing. We'll have to wait and see how he pulls it off.

Christof Sielecki also has such a product in the works.
