Hey katar!

Another great video! I'm really enjoying this series and can't wait for the last two to come out. I've watched most of them twice by now -- and will probably go a couple more rounds taking notes and getting serious about it when it's all complete.

Thanks for doing such a great job and sharing all this with us!

Hey , thx for the nice comments. Here is an index of previous videos:

#1. 1.e4 e5 for Black: Intro and Scotch Game [22:03]
viewtopic.php?t=5921

#2. 1. e4 e5 for Black: 2 Knights, Ulvestad [25:57]
viewtopic.php?t=5953

#3. 1.e4 e5 for Black; Two Knights Defense [34:49]
viewtopic.php?t=6046

#4. 1.e4 e5 for Black: Danish, Goring, Ponzi [24:20]
viewtopic.php?t=6130

#5. 1.e4 e5 for Black: Vienna, Bishops, KGD [34:13]
viewtopic.php?t=6244

I have 3 more videos planned for King's Gambit; Four Knights (Spanish, Scotch, Glek); and Ruy Lopez (Berlin). I also think i will make a video to address the weak spots that i've noticed in the videos.

I encourage people to look for things they disagree with, wrong analysis, etc... do your own investigations, find alternative lines that might suit you better personally, make a notebook or PGN files with SCID or Chessbase, look at GM games, etc... and of course, don't get too bogged down with opening minutiae. Most likely these videos contain plenty enough "theory" for a 2000 player with reasonable middle/end-game skills i would say.

EDIT:
I just realized Marin covers the "main position". But i don't have access to his book.

Katar-

Thank you for the PGN file, as that is the perfect companion to the video! If possible, please include it with the future videos.

Take care and keep up the good work,

Gmonster

A trick in the Vienna Gambit, 5. d3 line:

1. e4 e5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. f4 d5 4. fxe5 Nxe4 5. d3 Nxc3 6. bxc3 c5 7. Nf3 Nc6 8. d4 cxd4 9. cxd4 Bb4+ 10. Bd2 Nxd4! 11. Bxb4?! Nxf3+ 12. Qxf3 Qh4+ 13. Qg3 Qxb4+ 14. c3 Qb2 15. Rd1 O-O

White's pawns are very weak with 4 pawn islands, and Black is a pawn up and ahead in development.

(This has been posted in the other relevant threads too- since the original post where I linked to the CPT repertoire has long since dropped off the radar, I thought it made sense to link here):

I have transcribed Katar's e4-e5 complete repertoire into Chess Position Trainer format. See the link at the end of this post.

Please note that for my ease in transcription, I divided the repertoire into several sub-repertoires however many transpositions exist from one opening to another that are not addressed by this method of organization. Fortunately, CPT allows one to merge the sub-repertoires (discrete sub-reps or altogether) to create one super-repertoire that does address the transposition issue. If you do this (and you probably should for training purposes), first make a copy of the original in case you want to split off any of the sub-repertoires at a later date.

Also, databases are very tricky to proofread and Katar didn't speak the moves aloud at many points as he whizzed through variations making transcription a real challenge at times, so undoubtedly there will errors and oversights. Please let me know when you discover these as I will continue to update the repertoire over time.

All the material covered in his videos including comments (though often condensed) and evaluations is included. I also drew on other sources- articles, books and computer analysis in places where I thought it was useful to flesh out the lines or investigate obvious looking replies that were not originally covered in the videos. The only video of his 9-part series not included is the Main Line Berlin Defense ("The Berlin Wall") as the types of positions that arise (i.e. based on ideas rather than variations) do not lend themselves to a database treatment very successfully. You should watch his video for the ideas involved as well as Dennis Monokroussos' two excellent videos (albeit with a different approach to the opening than Katar's recommendations) and Cox's book (The Berlin Wall).

Many thanks to katar for his hard work and diligent research and also a big shoutout to Wildman whose PGN transcriptions proved invaluable at times.

Enjoy!
