    Informant 110 -  World champion joins a force of 73 grandmasters

    The present World Champion Vishy Anand in this volume joins a force of more than seventy prominent grandmasters, citizens from thirty-two countries, who analyze a total of 321 games and 387 game fragments.

    Grandmaster Michael Roiz, who analyzes six of his games for Chess Informant 110, called Informant "the last human chess book on earth." Meaning that the focus is on good old human logic – on those moves that chess players consider as possible options during the game – rather than on computer generated variations. It goes without saying that chess players utilize contemporary technology to check their calculations; however, it is the players who sign their names to the game.

    We dare to say that Informant is closest to the idea of an "open source project" among similar publications. Inside "110" there are more than 100 contributors in total, including well-known players, e.g. Anand, Judit Polgar, Sutovsky, Vitiugov, Kasimdzhanov, Bologan, Sasikiran, I.Sokolov, A. Beliavsky, Berkes, Ivanisevic, Sjugirov, Tiviakov, Volokitin, Gagunashvili, Bo. Vuckovic, Gajewski, Krasenkow, Rob. Markus,  R. Leitao, T. Gelashvili, Banikas, Al. Kovacevic, Radulski, D. Mastrovasilis, B.Amin, Gleizerov, Roiz, D. Solak, Gopal, S. Halkias, Golod, Ribli, Ar. Jussupow, Jan Timman, L. Christiansen, Ch. Lutz, Mih. Stojanovic, Haba, Mil. Perunovic, J. Benjamin, Du. Popovic, B. Damljanovic, Speelman, W. Browne, Mikhalchishin, ...
