    Hope he’ll repeat the famous statement by Karpov on the Petrov (aka Russian game): “Black can’t win, but White can lose!”.

    I thought it was a Cruijff-quote: Italians cannot beat you, but you can lose to them 🙂

    It was a first class session if only to watch the Cochrane Gambit under stress. Very interesting indeed. May well purchase the book.

    I can recommend it – it’s a great book i.m.o.! Not too overwhelming (though sufficiently detailed in the critical lines such as 5.Nc3) and lots of explanatory text. The only drawback that was mentioned on this blog is that there are some forced draws, but I think it’s rather unlikely to encounter these in a actual over the board game on club level.
