With contributions by Viktor Moskalenko, Igor Stohl, Viacheslav Zakhartsov, Nenad Sulava, Ufuk Tuncer, and many others. Benjamin's Opening Takes
    In his Opening Takes, Joel Benjamin shows how you can fight against over-prepared opponents, looking at Magnus Carlsen's practical approach in the London Classic and Tata Steel tournaments. Kuzmin's Harvest
    In his new series, insider Alexey Kuzmin collects the most important recent novelties for Yearbook readers. This time the novelties are from the European Championship in Plovdiv. Book Previews and Reviews
    In this section we present a sneak preview from The Modern French by Dejan Antic and Branimir Maksimovic. Our reviewer Glenn Flear notices a growing influence of subtitles in books like Ivan Sokolov's The Strategic Nimzo-Indian, Larry Kaufman's The Kaufman Repertoire for Black & White, Alexander Delchev's The Modern Reti and Ruslan Scherbakov's the triangle system. Of course the insides of these books are even more important, and Flear is an expert in pointing out the highlights!

    Catalog Code: CB0345RB

    When these two authors undertook to revise their 1983 treatment of the Schliemann Defense, they found that the opening had enjoyed such exercise in tournament (including Candidate Match) and correspondence play, that it would require four volumes to contain the current theory in adequate depth. This first volumee treats the lines after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 f5 4 Nc3 fxe4 5 Nxe4 Nf6, known as the Tartakower Variation.
