I see that the authors plan to follow this one with repertoires against the Sicilian (presumably not involving 3.Bb5(+), because Chess Stars already have one of those) and the Caro-Kann. Hopefully this will grow into a complete 1.e4 repertoire that isn't too daunting for a club player. It's great to see Khalifman back in action anyway.

On 2 Nc3, 2...Bc5 is a serious extra option.

The book is out on forward chess. He gives an early Bxc6 against the Symmetrical Variation, 5 0-0 against 4...Nd4 as mentioned in the table of contents, and what I understand to be fairly standard lines against 4...Bd6 and 4...Bc5.

1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 move order does not avoid the Elephant after 2...Nf6 3.Nf3 d5 4.exd5 Bd6.

I'm curious whether 2.Nc3 would be a better move order if one really wants to play the Spanish Four Knights:

Only if you dislike the Latvian and/or the Elephant.
1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 Bb4 as already mentioned is the Petrov.
1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 d6 is the Philidor.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Black alternatives to enter Four Knight after a Petroff move order  is 3 ..  Bb4 but it gives white a slight edge. One can also try to transpose vs Alekhin after 2 Nc3 but black has also 2 .. d5.

Not sure about Spanish Four Knights Nd4 00 c6 since I think I never met it,
We have to wait and see what El Khalif has in mind.
After Nxb5 Nxb5 I have however met both c6 and a6.

I'm curious whether 2.Nc3 would be a better move order if one really wants to play the Spanish Four Knights: Black nearly always responds with 2...Nf6.  I guess it depends on how you feel about Black's second and third move deviations in the regular Spanish move order.

The annoying reply to 4.Bb5 Nd4 5.O-O is c6! insisting on playing a gambit depending on White's reply.


It's also a way for White to avoid the Berlin.

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nf6 4. Nc3

I have played lot of Spanish Four Knights so this looks interesting. Most typical club players does not know theory very well on this line when playing with the black pieces.  I also  played 00 after Nd4 nad Bc5 00 and Bd6 d3. I will definetly buy this book when I gets out.

Now this book is announced for December 15th .

Btw, according to the ToC it‘s more about how to beat the Philidor!?
The treatment of 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 and 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 Nc3 d6 4 d4
has 115 pages, more than the Spanish Four Knights!

tracke 🙂

By the way, I never managed to find an edge for White in the following Symmetrical Variation either: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bb5 Bb4 5.0-0 0-0 6.d3 d6 7.Bg5 Ne7! = For this reason I think 7.Ne2!? is a better try for a little something and I predict that the Khalifman Book will go in this direction, although secretly I hope they have found something after 7.Bg5 Ne7! as the 7.Bg5 line has such a rich history.

It intrigues me that so few players choose 4...Nd4 5.O-O c6. I think it's a bigger problem for White than the regular 5...Nxd4 - not that that's a bad move. I'm curious what GM Khalifman will say about it.

Particularly interesting is the little known and easier to play for white in my opinion, option against the Rubinstein Variation: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bb5 Nd4 5.0-0!?


This was recommended by John Emms in the Dangerous Weapons book. What intrigues me about it is that it was a favourite of Joe Gallagher -- not exactly a timid or unambitious player.
