The book has 216 pages but the appendix with 100 games to understand the Berlin Endgame only starts on page 211 ?! (316 pages in total would make sense)

According to Niggemann the book is available in the next few days! (nov 21th?!)

tracke 🙂

@motörhead: Maybe the real problem in german politics is the pseudo-educated high-snobiety in the west which overrates idealism and existentialism?! Btw I‘m a wessi.

An incident that is still fresh in my mind happened in the World U-16 Championship in 2009, when I was paired against an opponent who was 200 points lower rated than me. I was scared to play the Berlin as I thought he might hold me to a draw, but my coach, GM R.B.Ramesh, told me to go and play it confidently, and the result was a 31-move victory!


Here is the game. I can't do an attachment from my phone.

[Event "World Youth ch u16"]
[Site "Antalya TUR"]
[Date "2009.11.16"]
[Round "6"]
[White "Szalay, Karoly"]
[Black "Priyadharshan, K."]
[Result "0-1"]
[ECO "C67"]
[WhiteElo "2128"]
[BlackElo "2343"]
[PlyCount "62"]
[EventDate "2009.11.12"]

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nf6 4. O-O Nxe4 5. d4 Nd6 6. Bxc6 dxc6 7. dxe5 Nf5
8. Qxd8+ Kxd8 9. Nc3 Ne7 10. Bg5 h6 11. Bh4 Ke8 12. Rad1 Bg4 13. h3 Bxf3 14.
gxf3 Nf5 15. Bg3 Ke7 16. Rd3 Ke6 17. Rfd1 Be7 18. Ne2 g5 19. f4 Rad8 20. Kg2
Rd5 21. Kf3 Rhd8 22. Ke4 Bc5 23. fxg5 Nxg3+ 24. Nxg3 hxg5 25. f4 gxf4 26. Nf1
Rxe5+ 27. Kxf4 Bd6 28. Kf3 Rh8 29. Kg2 Re2+ 30. Kg1 Rg8+ 31. Kh1 Rgg2
0-1

I am curious whether he can instill some life into the 5.Re1 line.

Ha,
we in Germany just had the jubilee of 30 years of the fall of the Berlin Wall on nov., 9th. And now I read, it will be modernized  Huh Cheesy Grin

Is somehow in the line with political feelings. The east of Germany has some tendencies towards extreme right wingers as the elections show.

Okay, that's only politics...

Let's focus on the really important items - let's focus on chess Cool

Seems to be rather strangely proportioned - the 4 Knights Spanish, which *can* be dealt with via "Go ..Bd6 and then play chess", has over 40 pages to its name, while the Berlin Ending, one of the theory-densest and most complicated positions in modern chess (causing Cox to write an entire book on it; with 250 pages of explanation), somehow is covered in 35.

Perhaps the 100 games at the end are commentated & majorly cover the endgame, so the author felt like theory doesn't need to be delved into that deep? Either way, curious to me.

Not shown on Thinkers Publishing own website yet. But interesting book looks like. Though I have never heard of this author before.
