Thanks for the info, it looks like your post really put the kibosh on this thread, still it will be interesting to see how Negi treats Tiger's Modern.

Indeed.

Have a nice day.

Hello.

No anti-Modern!
1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 d6 4.Be3
Recommended. I asked on the QC blog.

I am happy. This move often leads to rich positions and who better to explain these than Negi?

Have a nice day.

Hi.

Ok. Here we go. I made a separate thread on:
1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Be3

https://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?num=1581367383/0#0

Have a nice day.

Heya.

Hi.

Yea. 4...Nd7 comes to mind as the most natural alternative. I wonder if there is still some known way to avoid a KID after
1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Be3 Nd7 5.c4
However. Both e5 and Ngf6 seem like very natural moves to play at some point. Will have to check.

Have a nice day.


I'll make a separate thread in 1...e4 Modern section as this is not related to the Negi book. It would be highly interesting if he goes for this anti-Modern 3.Nf3, 4.Be3 move order though.

Have a nice day.

Hi.

4...c5 5.dxc5 Bxb2 6.Nbd2 Bxa1 7.Qxa1 is a pretty cool blitz line btw. Basically trying to show why development might matter. I think I've seen it somewhere earlier but I suppose black can just not take the exchange (6...dxc5) and then it might not be totally clear if the exchanges of pawns really favours white.

Have a nice day.

in the Modern you can presumably go for:
1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Be3
When for example Tiger Hillarp in his 2014 book thinks 4...Nf6 is best (p.240); although then 5.Nc3 and we get this Pirc line.

Have a nice day.

I have long been interested in this move order for White, and also the similar attempt at forcing Black into a Pirc line with 3.Nf3 d6 4.h3. I get Tiger's point that in both cases 4...a6?! is met with 5.c4! when ...a6 is not optimal. However, I don't see why Black can't keep his options open with 4...Nd7!?, possibly intending 5...e5 or 5...c5 or even reverting to 5.Nc3 a6. In both cases (with 4.h3 or 4.Be3) White is denied his desired straight Pirc transposition.

This isn't mentioned at all by Tiger, but the also reasonable 4...c5 is. In the 4.Be3 c5 case a transposition to the Dragon is on the cards.

Agreed. Any Negi publication is always eagerly anticipated.

Here is some info from the QC blog by Mr. Greet.
"About Negi – against the Alekhine he’s going main line with 4.Nf3; against the Pirc/Modern it’ll be Be3/Nf3. We’ll announce the publication date when we are ready. We will not announce the announcement date."
Sound policy.

This Be3/Nf3 business against the Pirc is kinda interesting. I wonder if it is with all of
1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Be3
4...Bg7 5.Nf3
4...c6 5.Nf3
4...a6 5.Nf3
Or if he goes for 5.Qd2 against something; which overall is a little bit more aggressive.

I guess one plus of allowing:
1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Be3 Bg7 5.Nf3
is that in the Modern you can presumably go for:
1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Be3
When for example Tiger Hillarp in his 2014 book thinks 4...Nf6 is best (p.240); although then 5.Nc3 and we get this Pirc line.

Have a nice day.

No release date yet, but Quality Chess has it listed in their 2020 catalog. It will cover the Scandinavian, Pirc/Modern,
Alekhine, and other unusual defenses.

GM Negi's books are always a treat to read.
