Sosonko’s Corner Sosonko’s Corner features some striking examples of players who violate all the opening rules this time. Sosonko looks at the famous decisive European Championship game Nepomniachtchi-Jobava in detail, and gives examples from other notorious rule violators like Morozevich and Zviagintsev.
Book Reviews Glenn Flear reviews a quite varied collection of books this time: from comprehensive works like Volume 2 of Boris Avrukh’s ‘Grandmaster Repertoire: 1.d4’ and the English edition of Paul van der Sterren’s ‘Fundamental Chess Openings’ to the highly specialized ‘The Moscow & Anti-Moscow Variations’ by expert GM Alexey Dreev, to labours of love like Vladimir Barsky’s ‘The Scotch Game for White’ and ‘Play the Ponziani’ by correspondence players Dave Taylor & Keith Hayward. And if you want to learn a cutting-edge grandmaster repertoire, ‘Wojo’s Weapons’ by Jonathan Hilton and Dean Ippolito might be a good try.
