Book Description

 

The Chess Player's Guide to Opening News

Forum
Readers from all over the world join in discussions on previous Surveys. Titled players, correspondence players and club players shed their light on opening developments and search for the truth together. With contributions by Viktor Moskalenko, Pavel Skatchkov, Jose Vilela, and many others.

Benjamin's Opening Takes
Joel Benjamin's helicopter view on openings swoops to the choices of the 21st century's World Champions, Vladimir Kramnik and Vishy Anand. After Kasparov's reign we have now entered the years of 1.d4. Benjamin takes an in-depth look at the 4.Qc2 Nimzo-Indian and the Lasker Variation of the Queen's Gambit Declined on the highest level.

Book Reviews
In his Review Section, Glenn Flear signals a trend towards 1.d4 openings. He follows John Emms' book on "the Nimzo-Indian 'move by move" and gets captivated by Vladimir Barsky's The Ragozin Complex, 'the author's best book yet'. Very detailed theoretical stuff is featured in Aagaard's and Ntirlis' The Tarrasch Defence. The Alterman Gambit Guide: Black Gambits 1 would appear to be on a lighter note, but Flear thinks it's high-quality and a good way to spice up your repertoire.
