Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-14-06  Whitehat1963: Almost a great player.
Jan-30-07  Bent Bexley: Check out his recently published Play the Ruy Lopez (Everyman). It is a whopping 376 pages! I'll guess it is the largest opening book Everyman has ever published.

The first 240 pages or so cover all of Black's possible replies without 3...a6 and fourth move alternatives as well. The rest of the book is devoted to the Worrall system (5.Qe2).

I'm just starting to go through the book but it is already clear this is not a database dump. Greet put a lot of effort into this work and it shows up on the page.

Those who play (and play against) or want to take up the Lopez should at least take a look at this book.

Mar-29-08  notyetagm: IM Greet is currently writing <"Play The Queen's Indian"> for Everyman Chess.

At the forum he says that he should be finished by the end of June 2008.

May-05-09  whiskeyrebel: I really enjoyed his book on the Accelerated Dragon Sicilian. I don't intend to give up the Caro Kann over it, but I think I learned enough that I can use it with confidence as an alternate secret weapon. The book is organized very well. Like all good opening book authors (IMO) he directs comments to both folks who might employ it as black or face it with the white pieces; he clearly isn't just being a cheerleader for either side. I think Greet worked his tail off on this book and look forward to future works by him.

  Pulo y Gata: I've read the first two books listed by <wordfunph> above; great books IMO. IM Greet is among the good and conscientious chess authors out there.
Jul-31-17  diagonal: Andrew Greet wins the <Dundee 150th Anniversary Chess Tournament in 2017> as an IM! GMs Simon Williams, Martin Petr, Spyridon Kapnisis and Ketevan Arakhamia-Grant shared 2nd-5th places; a half point back, in total 10 players (8 GMs, 2 IMs).

The Scottish player had in the last round to defend for 135 moves against Rozentalis to seal the tournament title, suffered one loss (against Pia Cramling), and won four games.

This year, Dundee hosted an International Chess Tournament marking 150 years since the famous Dundee Congress (1867)

Dundee 1867 is widely acknowledged as <the first *international* tournament to implement draws as 1/2 points>. (An oddity was that then the players tossed for colour at the start of each game!) (1867) (1967) (Official Site 2017)
