There will be just one final book on 1.e4 e5, at least this is what Negi writes in his "Minor Defences" work.

What is the source for Negi advocating the Ruy vs. 2...Nc6?


He "teasered" the Ruy Lopez via analyzing the Steinitz Variation in the Move order 1.e4 nc6 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 e5 4.Bb5; He said he could have postponed this line for the next book but added it as a bonus for part 5. This is a clear hint that he will recommend the Ruy Lopez.


Not necessarily, since you can also get this move-order via the Scotch Game.


Please not another book on the Scotch.  At least there is the Dokjnas repertoire book on the Ruy Lopez already.

Negi himself hints in his current book on minor defences that he will cover the Ruy in the last volume of the series. I am quite happy about that. Smiley

Basically Negi has still to deal with minor replies to 2.Nf3, such as the Latvian and Elephant Gambits, the Petroff, and 2...Nc6. Assuming that he will cover the Ruy, it all depends if he'll choose the main line Ruy or, for example the recently fashionable 5.d3 or similar. I suppose that it could be at least two volumes... maybe "Petroff and Ruy without 3...a6" and "Ruy with 3...a6", but it could also be a 3 volumes effort, too.

It's all speculation on the QC blog. The thinking is that Negi played the Ruy Lopez most so he would write about that. It's plausible. I attach extra weight to Andrew Greet's speculations, because Negi at some point might have stated his intentions to the editors.

I always attribute "does anybody know what will be in X book?" type questions to "slow news day".

You may be correct about the Sept 30th date or maybe the people who make the Foward Chess app on iOS app store jumped the gun a little too early? In any case I purchased my copy that way.


Quality Chess books are typically released on Forward Chess 1 week before print.

Hagen Watch1: you said "1.e4 vs Minor Openings was just published"; isnt the schedulled date September 30?

Concerning the e4-e5 volume(s), this is what Andrew Greet said in the QC blog

"I would say that Volume 6 will be quicker to write as unlike Vol 5 the author has faced these lines regularly and think Easter next year is likely unless the consequence of the pandemic enables PG to increase his output. I think it’s possible to do all of this Spanish/Petroff in 1 volume but it will be 600 pages! I’m expecting 6 d3 or 8h3 Spanish as I don’t think he will refute the Marshall."

8.h3 Spanish is a curious choice; isn't 8.a4 currently viewed as more critical?

And of course he isn't going to refute the Marshall, but is he going to refute the Berlin?  Wink
I feel like it would be easier to write a book with pretenses of "advantage in every line" featuring the Italian at this point.. is the Spanish even confirmed yet?

Even Negi himself doesn't know.

Negi's 1.e4 vs Minor Openings was just published. Does anybody know if his final unpublished book 1 e4 e5 will be one volume or split in two volumes?
