GM2 out in the world! + updated Publishing Schedule

February 26th, 2010 61 comments

The first copies of GM2 have started to arrive various places. By luck, Niggemann seemed to get the books earlier than usual. People are telling us it is great – but we have not yet seen it!

We have moved a few things around in the publishing schedule, but with a new employee starting in two weeks, we hope that we will be able to keep those arbitrary deadlines now.

Grandmaster Repertoire 2 – 1.d4 Volume Two at the printer

February 8th, 2010 11 comments

Friday night 1.15 am we uploaded GM Repertoire 2 – 1.d4 Volume Two to the printer in Estonia. Today they have started printing, using more than 6 ton of paper! We are very excited about this book. It is clearly our best book to date, I think, if you look at the chess content. The novelties probably amount to a 1000 and the impact on chess theory for this book is certain to equal if not dwarf that of GM1, which was reading material not just for chess fans hoping to improve, but also for players at the absolute top.

The book comes to 616 pages and will be available in a chess shop close to you at the end of February, if there are no more incidents with the Polish Border Patrols…

A small random excerpt of an idea I find quite amusing has been uploaded and can be found in the free e-book section. I will try to put it on the book as well, but I struggle to do so technically, so it might take a day or two…
