Book Description

The Chess Player's Guide to Opening News

Forum
Readers 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 Viktor Moskalenko, Pavel Skatchkov, Jose Vilela, and many others.

Benjamin's Opening Takes
Joel Benjamin's helicopter view on openings swoops to the choices of the 21st century's World Champions, Vladimir Kramnik and Vishy Anand. After Kasparov's reign we have now entered the years of 1.d4. Benjamin takes an in-depth look at the 4.Qc2 Nimzo-Indian and the Lasker Variation of the Queen's Gambit Declined on the highest level.

Book Reviews
In his Review Section, Glenn Flear signals a trend towards 1.d4 openings. He follows John Emms' book on "the Nimzo-Indian 'move by move" and gets captivated by Vladimir Barsky's The Ragozin Complex, 'the author's best book yet'. Very detailed theoretical stuff is featured in Aagaard's and Ntirlis' The Tarrasch Defence. The Alterman Gambit Guide: Black Gambits 1 would appear to be on a lighter note, but Flear thinks it's high-quality and a good way to spice up your repertoire.

    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!

  • The Nimzo-Larsen Attack - Move by Move
    The Nimzo-Larsen Attack is an ideal opening choice for players keen to avoid mainline theory but still wanting to set their opponents problems from the outset. In the Nimzo-Larsen, White begins 1 b3 and then develops in hypermodern fashion – planning to undermine any central structures Black dares to erect. A key attraction of the Nimzo-Larsen is that White can steer the game into either sharp play or elaborate strategic battles. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala invites you to join him in examining the many different variations of the Nimzo-Larsen. Lakdawala studies the typical plans and tactics for both sides, offers repertoire options for White, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about playing the Nimzo-Larsen Attack.
