Garry's Choice / from ChessCafe column, by Josip Asik:
"Garry Kasparov, the Thirteenth World Champion, tremendously influenced the development of chess with his games, analyses, and writings. The quality of this work has greatly enriched our chess culture, and Chess Informant has had the privilege of presenting the fruits of his deep analytical work for more than thirty years.

The number thirteen has always been Garry's lucky number, and Chess Informant 113 sees the return of his analytical work in the pages of our publication. Seven years after his retirement from professional chess, we are deeply honoured to welcome Garry back to Chess Informant!

In the new column, "Garry's Choice," he will be annotating select games from recent practice, casting his critical eye on the efforts of modern chess stars – and mere "mortals" – in his trademark style (..)

The other major announcement concerning Volume 113 is that it kicks off our new publication schedule of four issues per year: March, June, September, and December. That is about 1,000 annotated high-level games per year! Stay tuned."
