I wouldn't read too much into Bezgodov endorsing it though - his previous works include books on the 2. a3 Sicilian, the Double Queen's Gambit (1. d4 d5 2. c4 c5) and the Baltic Defence.

Writing a book on an opening is not necessarily equivalent to endorsing it. I have Bezgodov's book on the Double Queen's Gambit, and I'm very happy with it. It's not a black repertoire book at all -- it has original suggestions, wide coverage of transpositions, as well as objective assessments of the critical lines (+= verging on +/-). If indeed Bezgodov is endorsing this ...cxd4 line, I would give that as much weight as any other GM's opinion.

I haven't looked at this line enough to assess its soundness, although with Dubov playing it four times and now L'ami endorsing it one would expect it to hold up pretty well. I wouldn't read too much into Bezgodov endorsing it though - his previous works include books on the 2. a3 Sicilian, the Double Queen's Gambit (1. d4 d5 2. c4 c5) and the Baltic Defence.
I'd also caution against viewing it as a theory saver. White can (and really should) avoid this line against the classical move order (1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 c5) by playing 4. cxd5 exd5 5. Nf3 Nc6 6. dxc5, where black has been getting pummeled ever since the release of the Aagaard and Ntirlis book; while in the Catalan move order (1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. g3 c5) white typically castles before playing Nc3, meaning that the early ...cxd4 doesn't work. If you look at Dubov's games with it you'll see that they all arise from an English Opening (e.g. 1. c4 c5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. g3 e6 4. Nf3 d5). The other thing about this line from the perspective of time saving is that it's supposed to lead to very forcing, concrete play - that's how Dubov was able to blitz out so many moves against Nakamura - and so if you haven't done a good deal of memorisation I'd imagine that a well prepared opponent could claim an easy point against you.

Looks like Erwin l'Ami is about to publish a repertoire on Chessable about it.


@JFugre
That looks very interesting. I looked around and couldn’t see though.
Some helpful inside knowledge there? Smiley
Do you know when this may be available? Is there a release date set for this?
Thanks!


Chessable dont usually give specific release dates. They have a list of things due to come out in the current month, and a list of things confirmed as coming out soon.

The list below gives L'Ami's 'book' as due for release this month, so it should appear within the next few days as all the other titles due out in September have been released (i got an email about the Weterchek book today and several others yesterday).

I don't know, but in Bezgodov's Tarrasch book of about a year and a half ago, that (7...cd 8. Nxd4 Bc5) was claimed to be one of several "bad" lines that are actually good.

What did you all think about his approach against Nakamura in the gran prix?  I have a soft spot for the Tarrasch and this would certainly cut down on theory since it deviates relatively early from the main lines.

*I can't post a link before 15th message, but chessbase has a writeup of the game if you search Moscow GP drawing is better than losing.
