En helt ny utgave av stormester Kaufmans glimrende repertoarbok for både hvit og svart. Hvitdelen av boka er faktisk endret fra 1 d4 til 1 e4 siden førsteutgaven i 2013. Svartdelen av boka er derimot "bare" en grundig oppdatering av flere varianter. Boka er uvanlig nøye computersjekket.

En bok som kan benyttes i sin helhet eller i utvalgte deler av repertoarvalgene. En imponerende innholdsrik og godt forklart bok for spillere med ratingnivå helt fra cirka 11-1200 og godt opp i mesterklassen som også vil finne interessant stoff.

For hvit velger Kaufman trygge og sunne varianter som kan gi en liten fordel å spille på. Mot 1... e5 viser han både Italiensk med d3 og c3 og Spansk med 6 d3. Mot Siciliansk 1... c5 viser han både 2. Sc3 og 2. Sf3 og styrer mot anti-Sveshnikov-systemer med Lb5 eller alternativt Lc4. Mot Fransk foreskriver Kaufman Tarraschvarianten 1 e6 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Sd2. Mot ett av sine egne favorittforsvar, Caro-Kann, viser han faktisk tre ulike fortsettelser for hvit, uten å gå i dybden og uten å påstå noen vesentlig fordel.

Forlagets egen omtale:

Seven years after his acclaimed and bestselling The Kaufman Repertoire for Black and White, Grandmaster Larry Kaufman is back with his new repertoire book, covering the entire scope of chess openings for both White and Black, in one volume.

Two important developments made this new book necessary. Larry Kaufman, who himself routinely plays the lines he advocates to others, discovered that after 1.d4 (the recommendation in his previous book) it became nearly impossible to show a consistent advantage for White, especially against the Grünfeld and Nimzo/Ragozin defenses. The other factor was that chess engines have become so much stronger.

Larry Kaufman presents a completely new White repertoire with 1.e4 aiming for an objective advantage in the simplest practical manner. You are presented with two options, while you don’t have to play the sharpest lines. The Black repertoire has been thoroughly revised and updated, and three new chapters have been added.

Kaufman’s New Repertoire for Black and White is the first opening book that is primarily based on Monte Carlo search. The highly original analysis has resulted in loads of improvements on existing theory. This is a lucidly explained, ready-to-go and easy-to-digest repertoire with sound, practical lines that do not outdate rapidly and are suitable for masters while perfectly accessible for amateurs.

Larry Kaufman is an American Grandmaster. He has been involved in computer chess since 1967, when he worked on ‘MacHack’, the first computer that competed in tournaments with human players. More recently he has been working on the programs Rybka and Komodo.

Grandmaster Glenn Flear, on The Kaufman Repertoire for Black and White: "Kaufman isn't fobbing the public off with Mickey Mouse sidelines. He keeps things simple, but lucid. The book serves a purpose and does this very well. I have been hunting for something like this for a while. Thanks, Mr. Kaufman, my search is over!"
