BDGer Quinones + Thoughts on Scheerer

My second posting from Jorge Quinones is a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Ziegler 6.Bc4 e6 variation. As is common, the game in this line between Jorge Victor Quinones Borda and Claudio Correa De Almeida transposes to what could be reached via a BDG Euwe 5.Nf3 e6 6.Bc4 c6. White works up a very powerful attack. Jorge Quinones writes:

"On a different topic, I have been checking Mr. Scheerer´s book for some days, and I have found until now at least two or three really bad suggestions (that lose the game or at least leave you much worst), do you also found some bad lines suggested there?"

Yes. However I remember that Christoph Scheerer published improvements to his book in It is hard to write perfect commentary. What I really appreciate from Scheerer is that he wrote the book at all! I know from the four books that I wrote that the whole process is very hard, and one gets paid very little. Probably if an author got a job at McDonalds he would make far more money per hour than by writing chess books.

Clearly he revised it. The publisher announced the coming book many times, each with a larger number of pages. Another good thing I like about Scheerer's book is that he has clear evaluations and expresses definite opinions. Since he IS an International Master, Scheerer's assessments are more accurate than most chess players. Most of the book seems good to me. I am sure some of the games cited would have turned out better if one of the players had played differently. It is hard to write perfect commentary.

There are "some bad lines suggested" in every chess book. Even Larry Kaufman who writes computer perfect opening books changed some of his lines from his first book to the second. For me, some of those lines Scheerer covers have given me many creative and beautiful victories. I play some "bad" lines because (1) I am more comfortable in them that in "better" lines, and (2) Black often misplays these "bad for White" lines.
