Comments? It is in our university library, I will hopefully have it this weekend.
I loved COTAP! It's a great book that has many interesting games, variations, and descriptions.
It's an absolute dinosaur now. The closest book in style to it is probably FCO by van der Sterren. I would also recommend Nunn's Chess Openings (about a decade old now) over MCO.
yes, it's a dinosaur, but a good one. My high school had a copy back in the early 70s. (1970s. I'm not that old, you know) The information may be dated, but I liked Horrowitz's presentation and explanations.
Something about Al Horowitz himself: https://www.chess.com/article/view/the-player-i-d-most-like-to-have-met
Does it have anything about 1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 de 4 Nxe4 Nd7 5 Ng5 ?
How about 1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 e5 Bf5 4 Nc3 ?
batgirl, I thouroughly enjoyed your article about Al Horowitz, but then I like all of your historical articles. Yes, he was as interesting a character as one could hope to meet.
