At the bottom of the page, there is a telephone number !

Fight 1.d4 with the Tarrasch! A Complete Black Repertoire vs. 1.d4


Call long-distance to find out when the book shall be published, because they ignored my e-mails?

Certainly some better customer service would be the solution here.

Or they could just put the projected publication date on the book webpage.

In any case, after about a month I still have no reply to my e-mail about when this book is actually published at Russell Enterprises publishing house.

A few months ago I had e-mailed them about another book and no reply, so I expect that they just ignored my e-mails.

Got an email this morning from Amazon saying that they think they will now have it in stock between December 10 2019 - January 16 2020

I would not trust Amazon's prediction dates. I remember in 2009 summer I pre-ordered Awrukh's GM2. It was not released until February 2010...

Sure. But the release dates are based on what the publishers tell them - and so usually they give a good idea as to when a title is likely to become available.

For example, last week Amazon notified me of Everyman's changing the publication date of their new book on the Modern Benoni

Still no answer after more than three weeks from my e-mail sent to Russell Enterprises about when this book is published.

Amazon UK still has it available on 8 November. I have it on order with them, so i should find out in the next few days if they will have it in stock before then.

Regarding the Tarrasch book by Kotronias I‘m also very curious on his analysis of the Queen‘s Pawn Games: 2.Nf3 c5?! , 2.Bf4 c5! and 2.Bg5 f6! .

2.Nf3 c5 is surely okay, and if black wants a Tarrasch then it is best! -- 3.c4 e6.

I contacted more than one week ago Russell Enterprises by e-mail to ask when this book is released. No answer.

Amazon UK has it down for Friday 8th November.

Can someone recommend a good source for the study of this particular 3 vs. 4 Pawns Rook endgame (articles, books which cover it) ?

Last year I had to defend this 3-4 rook endgame (pawns on one wing) twice in correspondence chess (not from the Tarrasch but from Semi-Tarrasch and English).
I have allmost all important endgame tomes on my book shelf (Awerbach, ECE, Dvoretsky, Müller, Nunn, Speelman etc.) but the most useful source in this case was really The Survival Guide to Rook Endings by John Emms (Gambit, 2nd edition 2008)! Very practical!
For playing these 4-3 rook endgame you have to know some things about 2-1 rook endgames (what is no problem in corr because of 7-stone-tablebases).

Regarding the Tarrasch book by Kotronias I‘m also very curious on his analysis of the Queen‘s Pawn Games: 2.Nf3 c5?! , 2.Bf4 c5! and 2.Bg5 f6! .

No answer up to now from Russell Enterprises. It cannot be that difficult to answer a simple question.

Amazon I do not really know when their exact release dates are. I tend not to trust their release dates when concerning chess books.

The endgame advice is pretty good. Can someone recommend a good source for the study of this particular 3 vs. 4 Pawns Rook endgame (articles, books which cover it) ?
