    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.

      The Nimzo-Indian Defence continues to be one of Black's most reliable ways of meeting the queen's pawn opening. It's popular at all levels of chess and a constant source of anxiety for White players. How can White find a worthwhile line against this incredibly firm defence? How can White set his Nimzo opponent difficult tasks from the outset? Perhaps it's time to look somewhere different from the well-trodden main lines.
