New In Chess Yearbook, which appears four times a year, contains the latest news in chess openings, and each issue brings you dozens of new ideas on the cutting edge of modern chess theory.

A must-have publication for serious chess students.

Yearbook 85 contains

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 Zoltan Almasi, Ruslan Scherbakov, Efstratios Grivas and many others.

Sosonko's Corner
Starting with a striking confession by The Great Preparer Mikhail Botvinnik, Genna Sosonko investigates in thistime's Corner what a confrontation with a big novelty can do to a player. As always, his story is illustrated by many interesting examples from present, past and own experience, and enhanced by anecdotes from the well that never dries up.

Book Reviews
Glenn Flear gives the stage to lady-writers Yelena Dembo and Jovanka Houska in his Reviews section. The two have delivered high-quality books on the Grunfeld and the Caro-Kann respectively. The same goes for Mihail Marin with'A Spanish Repertoire for Black', which contains 'world class analysis', as Flear asserts.Karpov's new work 'How to Play the English Opening' is a different story. It features interesting comments, but is less well structured and slightly dated. A better job is done by Reinaldo Vera inFlear's view. 'The Meran Semi-Slav' has not only structure and topicality, but also'intelligent synthesis' - just what should distinguish an opening book from the omnipresent databases.
