    Book DescriptionNew In Chess Yearbook, which appears four times a year, contains the latest news in chess openings, and each issue brings you dozens of new ideas on the cutting edge of modern chess theory. The Yearbook not only covers the latest fashion, but also offers fresh insights into underrated gambits, rare continuations, and almost forgotten weapons. A must-have publication for serious chess students.

    Whatdid Jose Raul Capablanca think of the Sicilian? You will be surprised by thelegendary World Champion's ideas, illuminated by Genna Sosonko in this time'sCorner. An investigation follows of the merits and drawbacks of the great Cuban'sfavourite reply 2.Ne2, and we are given some surprising thoughts of modern topplayers on the classics.

    These days, Glenn Flear points out, openingbooks seem to be all about violence: fight this, kill that, use dangerousweapons. Milos Pavlovic's 'fighting the Ruy Lopez' is a case in point. It turnsout to be a pragmatic repertoire book. The same can be said of Semko Semkov'sambitious 'Kill K.I.D.', the cover of which would even scare Uma Thurman! 'Winwith the Stonewall Dutch' by Sverre Johnsen and Ivar Bern contains some nicelyunconventional ideas. Flear also compares the second edition of 'Pirc Alert', byAlburt and Chernin, with 'Dangerous Weapons: The Pirc and Modern' by Palliser,McNab & Vigus. As always, several refreshing examples illustrate Flear's owntake on the material.
