    NIC Yearbook 105 - HARDCOVER EDITION

    Vladimir Kramnik is More Equal Than Others in the Scotch

    Product Code: B0105HYB


    The Yearbook contains all major new chess opening developments in 35 chapters. Each issue brings dozens of new ideas on the cutting edge of modern chess theory. An accessible way to keep up to date with main line opening theory.

    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. Including some very special Olympiad coverage by Viktor Moskalenko and Guliskhan Nakhbayeva!

    In Benjamin’s Opening Takes and Kuzmin’s Harvest, grandmasters Joel Benjamin and Alexey Kuzmin present their views on novelties and opening tendencies in the latest top tournaments.
