Fauzi's opening book started its way on 2006 with the very first version of the book : Fauzi 0.1.abk, and has recently reached the latest and strongest version "Fauzi 7.0.abk".
On version 7.0, we nearly reached the limit size for opening books in Arena (2Gb) therefore all the future versions will be focusing mainly on tuning the lines rather than adding new games, with the hope that Arena will increase the limit of the maximum size.
Huge work have been done with the book during this period and huge improvement has been noticed based on tests and results, the main resource which helped me to improve the book so much was the creation of "Fauzi.ctg" opening book, which is an opening book that works on Fritz and Chessbase and you can find the link for it in the bottom of this page.
This version took long time to be released because I wanted to be sure that all the main lines are tuned correctly, and now I'm much satisfied of the final result.
Working hard everyday to improve and keep updated my opening book based on theoretical and practical aspects, tuning by hand each and every line, adding recent high quality games and testing the book by many skillful testers which tested and confirmed the very good results of this book.
The purpose of this book is to be the most competitive and strongest opening book for all the competitions such as engines vs engines matches and tournaments, correspondence chess, preparation of Human players in specific openings for single matches or tournaments, this book is well known for being able to adjudicate the match result by dominating the game starting from the opening and increasing the advantage through the whole middle game, and is well known for covering all the opening phase and going very deeply into the lines reaching for many lines up to 80 PLY (40 moves for both White and Black).
The book contains more than 1,200,000 high quality top engines games, selected to meet some criteria as Long Time Control and it doesn't include any human game or any game ended by forfeit, crash or loss on time, since these games would only reduce the book's quality.
The book is tuned to play most of the time e4 and d4 for white, while for black the main responses against 1.e4 are c5, e5, and against 1.d4 are d5, Nf6, but the tuning goes on to reach very deep lines.
It completely refute some side-openings leading the strongest side easily to the victory.
You can do some researches online to see the results that this book has got in many tournaments, for example you can check the results that the opening book was able to achieve in the tournament that is constantly organized by g-sei: http://www.g-sei.org/wp-content/IGWOBT/html/hof.html
As you can see the opening book always finished first between the abk book, while sometimes finishing second behind some .bin opening books, but it surely shows that the book is consistent.
I hope that you will be satisfied with this book, and that you will enjoy using it, either by winning your engines vs engines tournaments, or winning your correspondence matches, or even just by preparing your own unique opening repertoire for your "On The Board" games.
*Please note that I have also included as a small gift inside, you will find the latest version of my other opening book "Fauzi Aggressive", which is a smaller opening book compared to the main book, but it is tuned in order to decrease the draw ratings by choosing only the sharpest and most aggressive lines which will always favor the stronger side and leading to more decisive and shorter games overall.
Please note that the format of this book is (ABK), which works just on a few GUI's , mainly Arena (www.playwitharena.com), and some other small ones.
