@LittleKnownPlay: Thanks to you and NoNoo for the information on where you obtained your copies of the book.  I was fairly sure that you got them from a European source.  Chess book buyers in the US often have to wait several weeks to obtain books published in Europe unless we want to pay extra for shipping directly from there.

I check the Chess Stars site regularly but hadn't noticed its mention of that Dutch shop until you pointed it out. While I was at the site, I looked at the "Future Plans" page and was disappointed to see that it was blank.  Chess Stars usually has at least a book or two displayed on this page.  I hope this isn't a bad sign for them.

Indeed, as NoNoo suggested I got my book from this Dutch shop. I hadn't seen before that this site is now directly advertised to a Dutch audience on the chess-stars website.

Chess Stars is based in Bulgaria so it's easier to get the book in europe. I got mine at a german chess chess shop, but also found a dutch shop that could have delivered it to other EU countries already.

@LittleKnownPlay - Welcome to the forum, and thanks for your comments on the book.  It sounds quite worthwhile. I'm curious where you got the book.  It doesn't seem to be available yet here in the US.

My copy of this book arrived yesterday and for me the writer has achieved his goals perfectly. In limited space, he gives lucid explanations on all of his repertoire choices. To me his treatment of the Rubinstein was his big selling point and also where he delivered. I am new as a member (long time reader though) of this wonderful forum and as my name suggests I like to drag my opponents to territory they haven't seen as often and where they can't routinely play their main book moves.
In other variations he aimed for theoretically established main lines in which the main ideas for both sides are explained and anticipated on with his choices. In some of those main lines I would still rather play the White side. But I guess that is a matter of personal taste and wishful thinking of finding a perfect cure when working on a Black repertoire  Smiley Objectively, Black should hold everywhere in the suggested lines.
All in all, I think it makes for a great and concise repertoire book that I would wholeheartedly recommend to any experienced player picking up the Nimzo-Indian.

It's funny; I took you at your word and started analysing it out - takes, takes, Ng5+ etc, before I had a *wait a second!* moment  Smiley


Thank you for saving me from trying this sacrifice in a serious game. Cheesy

On page 127   12.Bxh7+ Kxh7 13. Ng5+  wins (Instead of 13.Qh5+). 


The Knight is on e2, rather than f3.

Someone has been playing with Leela, I presume! Although the NNet SF likes Re8 there reasonably too.

I did look at it a little bit, wasn't sure quite how different things were. Definitely not as much fun as 5 Ne2 Re8 Smiley The Nimzo is perfect for this sort of approach of course. So sound that you can vary the details in all sorts of ways early on.

A sample from this book was recently posted on the Chess Stars site.

http://www.chess-stars.com/resources/Nimzo_sample.pdf

The Index of Variations at the end of the sample is quite informative.  In the Preface, Lysyj said he's aiming the book at readers who want to adopt the Nimzo-Indian, but are leery of the theory-heavy lines. Hence he advocates less common variations such as 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e3 0-0 5.Bd3 Re8!?
