A civic arrest

While in New Delhi for a teaching camp, I came across a well known fugitive and immediately conducted a civic arrest.

Grandmaster Parimarjan Negi, who played board one for India in their Bronze-medal performance in 2014. The author of four books in the Grandmaster Repertoire series of 1.e4 books, with two books missing! After he claimed to have made considerable progress on Volume 5, he managed to wrestle himself free and run away. Only time will tell how truthful he was.

    Ah, there is the fugitive πŸ˜‰

    It would be very sad, if we could never hold a GM-Repertoire about the Ruy Lopez in our hands.

    But Negi 5 will be about the “other” half open games if I remember correctly.

    Since Negi got away before you could chain him to a computer console, maybe the series will be completed sooner if you let John take it over?

    Just kidding!

    “Alright, listen up, ladies and gentlemen, our fugitive has been on the run for ninety minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground barring injuries is 4 miles-per-hour. That gives us a radius of six miles. What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your fugitive’s name is GM Parimarjan Negi. Go get him.”

    Ahhhh, he escaped?! You should have used a taser on him!

    Apparently it is not a serious crime to not write a book in India…

    Doesn’t mean you still couldn’t have tased him. πŸ˜‰

    You should also try to somehow get hold of Mauricio Flores.
    Long ago he was talking of a second or even third volume of his book…

    What were the 5th and 6th books going to cover?

    And we’re still waiting for some najdorf and scotch GM repertoires!

    It’s already been mentioned that they will be no GM rep Scotch, as it was covered in Playing 1 e4!

    The GM rep on the Najdorf…………..now that another question πŸ™
