Are we splitters?

August 9th, 2011 46 comments

Because of the slow progress on, and the extensive material for, THE ALTERMAN GAMBIT GUIDE – BLACK GAMBITS, we have decided to publish the book in two volumes. We just don’t want the readers to wait around for the second volume for another nine months, while the book is finished. So, we will publish it in two, slimmer and cheaper, volumes. The first will be available quite soon.

Obviously this has happened before with us – leading one planned 128 page book from Mihail Marin to be split twice, after one chapter turned out to be 480 pages in book form (GM3) and other 150 (half of GM4). Recently this also happened with the Grunfeld books by Avrukh, which were simply too thick as one volume, and are quite comprehensive as two.

We don’t want this to be a bad habit, but certainly it has happened a few times…

New Version of the Newsletter pdf and pgn

August 2nd, 2011 9 comments

Not a new newsletter, yet. Instead at this pdf link you will find the same material in a more user-friendly layout. In fact, more like one of our books.

Also, a new version of the pgn. The only change in the pgn is making one of the puzzles slightly easier by giving the correct side to play (thanks to Adolfo for telling us).
