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.

  • Dutch Stonewall
    The Stonewall is an ideal choice for those players who are keen to avoid the reams of theory that surround more popular openings such as the King's Indian and Nimzo-Indian Defenses. By playing the Stonewall, Black stakes an immediate claim in the center and lays the foundations for a potentially dangerous kingside attack.

  • Bobby Fischer for Beginners
    Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all. The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants.

  • The Slav
    The Slav Defense (1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6) has been one of Black's most reliable defenses to the queen's pawn since its adoption by World Champions Alekhine and Euwe in the 1930s. Nowadays it is very popular both at grandmaster level (it is used regularly by Ivanchuk, Lautier and Short) and with club players. In this book, Grandmaster Matthew Sadler explains the strategy and tactics of this perennial favorite. Through the use of model games for both sides, the author provides a thorough grounding in the key ideas so readers can quickly and confidently start to use the Slav in their own games.

  • Alexander Alekhine - Master of Attack
    What separated Alexander Alekhine from the rest of his contemporaries? Why did he dominate the chess world for so long? The main reason was undoubtedly his brilliant attacking style of play. Alekhine had a combinative gift and thrilled the chess public and influenced every great chess player since. Garry Kasparov once said I fell in love with the rich complexity of his ideas at the chessboard. Alekhine's attacks came suddenly, like destructive thunderstorms that erupted from a clear sky.
