NIC Forum Readers from all over the world join in discussions of previous surveys. Both (grand)masters and club players shed their light on new opening developments and search together for the truth. With contributions by José Vilela, Bogdan Lalic, and many others.
Sosonko's Corner In several of his previous columns editor-in-chief Genna Sosonko has turned his attention to the move g2-g4, which gets ever more popular in many different opening systems. Now he wants to do the same 'One Final Time'. Meet the faces of Hein Donner, Alexey Shirov and David Bronstein, all members of the illustrious g2-g4 club.
Book Review Reviewing The Jackal Attack, a private publication by Adrian Skelton, Glenn Flear lets his mind roam over the tendency to name off-beat openings after animals. His conclusion about the book: fun variations but skimpy contents. The difference with the other two books under review could not be much bigger. The Two Knights Defence by Jan Pinski and The Catalan by Alex Raetsky and Maxim Chetverik are both serious monographs, be it on totally different openings. The former highly tactical, the latter more with a strategic flavour.
