    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.

    ForumReaders 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 Alexey Kuzmin, Viacheslav Zakhartsov, Nenad Sulava, and many others

    Sosonko's CornerSosonko's Corner features some striking examples of players who violate all the opening rules this time. Sosonko looks at the famous decisive European Championship game Nepomniachtchi-Jobava in detail, and gives examples from other notorious rule violators like Morozevich and Zviagintsev.

    ReviewsGlenn Flear reviews a quite varied collection of books this time: from comprehensive works like Volume 2 of Boris Avrukh's 'Grandmaster Repertoire: 1.d4' and the English edition of Paul van der Sterren's 'Fundamental Chess Openings' to the highly specialized 'The Moscow & Anti-Moscow Variations' by expert GM Alexey Dreev, to labours of love like Vladimir Barsky's 'The Scotch Game for White' and 'Play the Ponziani' by correspondence players Dave Taylor & Keith Hayward. And if you want to learn a cutting-edge grandmaster repertoire, 'Wojo's Weapons' by Jonathan Hilton and Dean Ippolito might be a good try.
