Sosonko’s Corner In his Corner, Genna Sosonko illustrates the dangers of not being sufficiently prepared. As he demonstrates, this can even happen to the likes of Alexander Morozevich, Lev Polugaevsky and… Genna Sosonko! What to do when you do not feel prepared? It even happened to the great Viktor Kortchnoi, but he knew what to do about it.
Book Reviews How to combat the Sicilian Defence with white? Glenn Flear reviews two books that deal with this eternal question: Jesus de la Villa’s ‘Dismantling the Sicilian’, a courageous attempt at a comprehensive system for White, and Alexander Khalifman’s ‘Opening for White according to Anand – 1.e4 (Volume 12), which investigates the Classical Sicilian in depth. A sharp Flearian comparison between the two follows. The English grandmaster further presents three repertoire books: Sergey Shipov’s ‘The Complete Hedgehog’, Mihail Marin’s ‘The English Opening’ (part 1, covering 1.c4 e5) and Ivan Sokolov’s ‘The Ruy Lopez Revisited’ on Spanish sidelines. All three are high-quality works, not to be missed by the opening fan.
