Personally I found it instructive to be informed in the publisher's sample (p.44) that 9...a6 is

This puts me in mind of another recent thread, on what publishers should/shouldn't reveal in sample pages.


Very little, if you receive emails from New In Chess, whose sample pages with this title are inadvertently those for The Wizard of Warsaw by Lissowski and Bogdanovich.

Chapter Three The Romanishin Variation has 11 games. After 3...b5 4.Bg2 Bb7 Pavlovic plays 5.Bg5, where Sielecki plays 5.0-0, which will probably transpose.

Thanks TD! As an 1.e4 player, I find Sielecki's 1.d4 book a nice way to vary, also works well with students (can't say the same of Sielecki's 1.e4 edition 1 or 2, openings look too lame, but perhaps 1.d4 players will say the same of sielecki's 1.d4). The early ...b5 lines are important (as well as Benoni & pseudo-gruenfeld) since they challenge White's intended d4/Nf3/g3/0-0/c4. Looking forward for your review!

I received the book today. Smiley The Romanishin Variation is indeed 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.g3 b5, but also 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.g3 d5 4.Bg2 b5. The book has many games of Ulf Andersson (a hero of mine) and also games from other players I know from playing this kind of repertoire, like Georg Meier and Oleg Romanishin (with White! Wink ). And also my hero from Wojo's Weapons, the late Aleksander Wojtkiewicz, is featured in a main game. There are 79 games in total. Throughout the book the move order may have been altered to fit Pavlovic's move order, which can make it difficult to find the game in question. I am now going to compare this repertoire with Sielecki's, among others. I will give you my findings when I am done.

Perhaps the problem might be that just because a chess writer is seen as making some claim to chess expertise, a chess book publisher might not know chess from checkers.  Roll Eyes

Whoever has the book first informs the rest of us, okay?  Wink
As a big fan of Sielecki's proposed repertoire, I am going to buy this book anyway.  Smiley

Like others on this thread I'm surprised publishers think, that with all the chess material available these days they can tempt buyers into making a purchase pretty much on blind faith. 

As has been said earlier, what does the author intend to offer against the KID, why is their no mention of the Grunfeld and I assume chapter 6, solid third moves for black will include Slav set-ups, but who knows?

Come-on Everyman help us out here please!
