Deep Junior is back and how! This incredible killing machine understands tactical play much better than more expensive engines as Fritz or Houdini.
This is the perfect engine for players who prefer sharp lines as the Marshall Gambit,because Junior Yokohama will play lines that are hardly
touched by other engines, as for example after the moves:1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 0-0 8.c3 d5 9.exd5 Nxd5
10.Nxe5 Nxe5 11.Rxe5 c6 12.d4 Bd6
13.Re1 Qh4 14.g3 Qh3 15.Be3 Bg4 16.Qd3 Rae8 17.Nd2 Qh5 18.a4 Re6 19.axb5 axb5 20.Bxd5!?
The Power book move here is 20.Qf1. Funny enough Deep Fritz prefers here 10.Nf1.
After: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f5 3.Bc4 fxe4 4.Nxe5 d5 The Svedenborg’s Variation,called after the Norwegian player Svedenborg but this move was already
 quoted by the good old Bilguer,back in 1843. 5.Qh5+ g6 6.Nxg6 hxg6 7.Qxg6+ Kd7 8.Bxd5 Nf6 9.Nc3 Deep Junior Yokohama
considers moves as 9…c6 and 9….Bc5.
Tony Kosten only considers  in his book The Latvian gambit Lives!  9….Nc6!? as an alternative.
In the Poisoned g2 Pawn Variation Deep Junior gave me new moves as:
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f5 3.Bc4 fxe4 4.Nxe5 Qg5 5.d4 Qxg2 6.Qh5+ g6 7.Bf7+ Kd8 8.Bxg6 Qxh1+ 9.Ke2 Qxc1 10.Nf7+ Ke8 11.Nxh8+ hxg6
12.Qxg6+ Kd8 13.Nf7+ Ke7 14.Nc3 Qxc2+ 15.Ke1 d6 16.Nd5+ Kd7 17.Qxg8 Qxb2 18.Rd1 Qa3!?
In the famous Fischer – Tal game from Leipzig 1960,Deep Junior Yokohama comes with the new move 14.Rb1!?
Fischer,Robert James - Tal,Mihail [C17]
Leipzig ol (Men) fin-A Leipzig (5), 01.11.1960
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Ba5 6.b4 cxd4 7.Qg4 Ne7 8.bxa5 dxc3 9.Qxg7 Rg8 10.Qxh7 Nbc6
11.Nf3 Qc7 12.Bb5 Bd7 13.0-0 0-0-0 14.Bg5 {14.Rb1!?N} Nxe5 15.Nxe5 Bxb5 16.Nxf7 Bxf1 17.Nxd8 Rxg5
18.Nxe6 Rxg2+ 19.Kh1 Qe5 20.Rxf1 Qxe6 21.Kxg2 Qg4+ ½-½
Deep Junior comes with the new Deep Fritz 64-bit program interface (+ 32 bit program interface) Online access
to the world’s largest
 database “Let’s Check”, with over 200 million extensively analysed positions. Access to ChessBase engine cloud
Premium membership to a rustenPlaychess.com (6 months) Database with over 1.5 million games etc.
Conclusion: Deep Junior has become a tactical monster!

Grandmaster Robert Ris provides the user of this DVD with a very interesting repertoire line DVD based,  on the exciting Traxler or as the
English say,the Wilkes-Barre variation where black must be prepared to sacrifice.
And be aware if you like to play 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5!? You must have a good memory  and a great love for tactics,other
wise go for one or other alternative which are also included on this heavy loaded DVD.
For example: Jakymov,Volodymyr (2281) - Mamedyarov,Shakhriyar (2493) [C56]
EU-ch U16 Chalkidiki (2), 01.09.2001
1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nf3 Nc6 5.0-0 Nxe4 6.Re1 d5 7.Bxd5 Qxd5 8.Nc3 Qa5 9.Nxe4 Be6 10.Neg5 0-0-0 11.Nxe6 fxe6

50.Kc6 Rc2+ 51.Kd7 ½-½
Complicated are lines after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Nxf7 Bxf2+ 6.Kxf2 Nxe4+ 7.Ke3 but I am missing here
 correspondence games with there  latest developments, because there is much more material than the video analyses from Ris show us here.
By the way,interesting to mention is the following lost from Bobby Fischer: Fischer,Robert James - Henry,Robert L [C57]
San Francisco sim San Francisco, 1964
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5 5.Bxf7+ Ke7 6.Bd5 Rf8 7.0-0 h6 8.Nf3 d6 9.Bxc6 bxc6 10.d4 exd4 11.Nxd4 Kf7

Grandmaster Robert Ris does not only explain in his 16 video files all the  ideas and strategies, behind the Queen’s
Gambit Declined 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Bg5 c6 6.Qc2,but also covers a lot of latest information as for example the following game:
Vitiugov,Nikita (2729) - Halkias,Stelios (2568) [D31]
29th ECC Open 2013 Rhodes GRE (3.3), 22.10.2013

The key idea for black in many structures is to place the dark squared bishop on the b8-h2 diagonal in
order to put pressure on white’s kingside,while at the same time defending his weak queenside dark squares,but as we can see in the
following game it is all not so easy for black: Lputian,Smbat G (2545) - Petrosian,Arshak B (2495) [D35]
Yerevan Yerevan, 1986
1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Be7 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Bf4 c6 6.e3 Nf6 7.Bd3 Nbd7 8.h3 Nf8 9.Nf3 Ng6 10.Bg3 Bd6 11.Ne5 Qc7

International master Lawrence Trent presents here a enjoyable repertoire for white with the sharp and dangerous Grand Prix Attack.
This opening leads to complicated play right from move one,and it was the great Evgeny Svesnikov who wrote in his book
The Grand Prix Attack that the move 2.f4 is one of white’s deadliest weapons against the Sicilian Defence.
As we can see in the following model game,Trent knows what he is doing here on this DVD:

This ChessBase DVD is well filled with all the world championship games and the best part is that grandmaster Daniel King has analysed all ten games in video format!
Included is also a WorldChampionship file with excellent annotated games:
Anand,Viswanathan (2775) - Carlsen,Magnus (2870) [E25]
World Championship Chennai (9), 21.11.2013
[Gutman,L]
1.d4! "I should have played 1.d4 from the start. That was one of my greatest mistakes in my preparation", Viswanathan Anand after the match. "Ich hätte von Anfang an 1.d4 spielen müssen. Dies war einer meiner größten Fehler bei der Vorbereitung", Viswanathan Anand nach dem Wettkampf. 1...Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.f3 d5 5.a3 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 c5 7.cxd5 exd5 [In the match Anand-Kramnik, Bonn 2008 Im Wettkampf Anand-Kramnik, Bonn 2008, kam 7...Nxd5 was played. aufs Brett.] 8.e3 c4!? In any case the choice of opening by Carlsen should have ben no surprise, since his previous trainer and confidant GM Simen Agdestein had already played this at the start of the year and  even revealed after the game, "that the Norwegian national team had recently been lookng into this variation", Ian Rogers.
 Allerdings sollte die Eröffnungswahl von Carlsen keine Überraschung sein, da sein früherer Trainer und Vertrauter GM Simen Agdestein bereits Anfang des Jahres so gespielt hat und  nach der Partie sogar verriet, "dass die norwegische Nationalmannschaft sich kürzlich gerade mit dieser Variante beschäftigte", Ian Rogers.

 Mit seiner Eröffnungswahl dürfte Anand zufrieden gewesen sein, er bekam genau den Typ Stellung, den er bei seinem Rückstand im Wettkampf gebraucht hatte - kompliziert und scharf.
 13.Ra2 In contrast to the Botvinnik Variation White does not need a rook on e2 in order to get in e3-e4. Im Unterschied zur Botwinnik-Variante braucht Weiß keinen Turm auf e2 um e3-e4 durchzusetzen. [The move Der Zug 13.Rb1!? has been less explored, but in view of the counterplay for Black on the b-file it looks to make more sense and would perhaps have been less pleasant for Carlsen to face. ist weniger untersucht, erscheint in Anbetracht des schwarzen Gegenspiels auf der b-Linie sinnvoller und wäre für Carlsen vielleicht unangenehmer gewesen.] 13...b5 [13...h6 see Kasparov-Polgar siehe Kasparov-Polgar;

The New Winawer Report by Sean Coffey
http://www.irlchess.com/tnwr/ is a free, monthly electronic newsletter on the theory, practice, and history of the French Winawer.
Price: Free



Sean Coffey wrote me: (In fact I had originally started a comprehensive update of Moles {The French Defence Main
Line Winawer,Batsford 1975} to the present day, line by line and word by word; but based on what I completed, this would take about 2,500 pages in the same format today. The newsletter aims to keep the same depth and approach as Moles, though.
Conclusion: High quality material!
