41€ is 70$ ¿ Is this AUD ¿ Surely USD and CAD cannot be that low on the exchange rate


New Zealand dollars....the AUD would not be much different....

3/The book is 29,95 Euro, then the publisher wants to add another 11,00 Euro postage which makes the book around $70.00 in my money. For that I want to be sure I'm not buying a lemon and I'm afraid the sample pages don't tell me enough to make that call.

Personally on instinct, although I cannot see the detailed lines in either this book nor Moskalenko, I tend to trust latter more. Actually in this case both authors have a unique writing style, but Moskalenko is less annoying, in my view.

Let's hope that he has new ideas for White in the Slav Exchange, otherwise frankly I don't understand his decision to suggest it. It seems to me that most repertoires are "forgetting" to include a line vs. 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 dxc4, which seems a beginner's move, but is actually a very tricky line. Anyway, I will probably buy it, because I like the introductory parts with the main ideas, history, etc.

Undecided as too weather or not I will buy this book....whilst the actual repertoire variations look interesting and would compliment the lines I already play my reservations are as follows:

1/The only way I am able to buy the book is online as there are no chess book stockist in my country...hence I can't browse the book before buying to better establish what is in it and how up-to-date it is...

2/The index offered in the sample pages doesn't really tell me much about the actual variations...IMO a number of publishers need to do better in this area. I think Chess Stars do a good job of informing the buyer, whilst not giving everything away.

3/The book is 29,95 Euro, then the publisher wants to add another 11,00 Euro postage which makes the book around $70.00 in my money. For that I want to be sure I'm not buying a lemon and I'm afraid the sample pages don't tell me enough to make that call.

Option Amazon (who do a good "look inside" and will cost around $50). This means I have to wait a few months plus I understand that they drive a pretty hard bargain which means less for the publisher and author, which I don't think is a good outcome.

All in all, this looks like a similarish repertoire to the old Keene/Jacobs repertoire for white. Broadly speaking, that is.

The Benoni chapter looks interesting. The Be2+Bd2 stuff in the Flick Knife Benoni is new to me.

I’m not sure there’s enough in the book to tempt me. I already have Revolutionize your Chess, which contains the same lines against the Nimzo and KID. The suggestion against the QGD looks standard and well covered by other sources. The Dutch isn’t covered.

The only thing that might tempt me is if the chapters on the Gruenfeld and Slav are particularly original and thought provoking. There’s no info on this from the sample pages, alas.

Regarding the Moskalenko repertoire, how is the Slav Exchange an "ambitious idea"?

It's also somewhat unpleasant that he refers to his other book for the Dutch. Not truly a complete repertoire.


I didn’t even notice that! Also couldn’t find anything on the Budapest, unless the Indo-Benoni covers it, whatever that might be. Unless that’s a ‘refer to my Budapest book’ job as well.

Each opening looks like a few pages of theory with the bulk of the book being annotated games. I think I’ll pass on this. The Sielecki book is more my thing.

Anyone know what the Moskalenko rep is?


No idea, but I’d imagine it’ll be quite aggressive, with a liberal use of the f-pawn. I don’t have the book, but memory tells me he covered f3 setups in the Nimzo and the Four Pawns against the King’s Indian in one of his earlier books.

Just speculation of course, I might be completely wrong. I just can’t see Moskalenko recommending anything else. 


Quoting myself!

Well what timing! The sample pages are now up on NIC https://www.newinchess.com/an-attacking-repertoire-for-white-with-1-d4. Looks like I was right! f3/f4 systems abound Cheesy

I notice that Peter Boel of NIC wrote on May 27 that the Moskalenko book will be released in a few weeks.

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