Are you serious ¿ Too much original analysis is bad ¿ Should it not be a good thing that it is not just game references, and instead has new original analysis ¿

I think he means that he is concerned that the analysis may not actually be original or new, not that having original analysis per se is bad in a book.

You are absolutely right, RoleyPoley. I think original analysis is a good thing, off course. But when I went through some of the variations I noticed there were games played with it, but no game references given. So sometimes I think it is difficult to see where the new analysis begins.

Too little own analysis

I have not studied the book thoroughly, but I think there is very much own analysis, also with novelties. Although the lack of more game references makes me doubt if some of his analysis is new or already played before.

@winawer77:

Yes, it is indeed 7 ... c6. It's a good, up to date book, unfortunately with the usual mistakes of a "theory" book.
Too little own analysis and too much known blabla. In addition, many inaccuracies ...
It may be enough for OTB, but not for corr / the abolute truth.

Does anyone have the book? If so, would you recommend it? Any thoughts or comments about the material suggested?

Also, which main line does he suggest? Id imagine its 7...c6.

Thanks on advance. I’ve always had a soft spot for the Dutch and I’m trying to convince myself not to buy it. Smiley

I think it's strange that Demuth doesn't mention the books from Karolyi in the Bibliography.

I find strange they spelt the title with American spellings though.

They do that with all their titles in the 'Modernized' series, though oddly they fail to adopt a consistent approach to '-ise' and '-ize' endings within the text from one book to the next.

This is the inkijksexemplaar:

http://www.debestezet.nl/catalog/images/PDF/The%20Modernized%20Dutch%20Defense.p...

I cannot tell from either the Tafel of Contents, Introduction or the excerpt pages itself if it is 7...c6 or not. My guess is it should be.

The guy has a vidéo series on London on chess24 (en français) and I thought that his Réti book was original in his recommending of qwirky lines. He seems to me be more of the kind of unorthodox player when it concerns openings. I am excited to see this book, probably will pre-order soon.

7...De8 seems to be over a cloud now, or at least it was my impression, due to when White tries to bust open the e-file quickly putting the rook on e1 and playing e4. I vaguely remember Pruijsser's Dutch repertoire with 7...De8, and the line where Black accepted a pawn sacrifice by taking loose pawn on c4 looked slightly scary for Black, to me.

A very qwirky choice would be 7...Cc6 like Nakamura, although in his game with Jeffrey Xiong he put the knight on a5. The only line that I remember from this line is Black puts it on e5 and tries to launch a mad KID-style kingside attack with ...g5/...f4.

I would be happy with 7...c6, and it looks like Demuth is going to choose this anyway.

I thought Quality Chess were also putting out a book on the Leningrad by Marin but they haven't said anything about it for a while now so I guess it is not going ahead.

The QC book is scheduled for the end of this year.

He has been playing the 7....c6 line recently so I suspect that your guess will be correct...

Sounds like another interesting book from GM Demuth and Thinkers Publishing. I thought Quality Chess were also putting out a book on the Leningrad by Marin but they haven't said anything about it for a while now so I guess it is not going ahead.

Another Thinkers Publishing book:

http://chessbookshop.com/katalog_detail.asp?ant=False&kodknihy=8680&page=1&id=&l...

It says that will publish in August 2019. My guess is Leningrad with 7...c6 (¿)

His Réti book was interesting, this book looks big too at 470

In addition to Delchew's Grünfeld, this makes two books on 1. d4 for Black in August.
