    why? at your level its not like your opponents will play the most up to date daring stuff theory more often than not bring up old analysis and why its not really refuted or how to play for a diffrent route. the watson book is perfect for you since its by a IM so his analysis youll understand a little better than you studying a GM.

Even old books on the Slav are quite adequate, as there have been no major trends in the Geller Gambit for the last eight years or so.I'd rather say if you don't have any Slav book yet, to wait a bit and buy the two- volume "Complete Slav" by Sakaev, which will be out (the first volume only) after a couple of months or so. Happily for you, the first volume deals with the Geller Gambit.

    what rating aim is the 2volume set recommended for. or better yet what 1.d4/1.Nf3 opening books old or new would you recommend for a 1706 rated player like me if you dont mind me asking.
