Five stars for Huber's 'The Vienna Game (C23-C29)'
Review by Carsten Hansen

"This CD covers both the Vienna Game and the Bishop’s Opening, and once you start reading through the material, you can tell that this is clearly a labor of love for Canadian FIDE master Gregory Huber. He has considered everything. Every time a database text refers to a game, it has been fully annotated, often by Huber himself, with explanatory prose and analysis and improvements for both sides.



The material is divided as follows:

  • 1 e4 e5 2 Bc4 (1 text)

  • 1 e4 e5 2 Nc4 Nf6 3 d3 c6 4 Nf3 (3 texts)

Furthermore, there is a database with 27,578 games, of which 294 have been annotated (in addition to the ones by Huber in the database texts), a training database with 54 examples, and a database tree.

Huber has made a phenomenal effort in exploring these openings in depth. He clearly presents all the current data, with all sidelines labeled and evaluated, along with adding hundreds of his own suggestions and improvements over existing theory. This is an excellent effort, which I hope will find a wide readership. Anyone playing these opening as White or Black will definitely want to obtain this CD.

My assessment of this CD: * * * * *
