Benjamin's Opening Takes In this new column, Joel Benjamin picks up where Genna Sosonko left off. The American GM, a prolific chess writer, shows us the recent opening novelties that appealed most to him. With special attention for two highly creative young theoreticians from Poland: Grzegorz Gajewski and Radoslaw Wojtaszek.
Book Reviews Glenn Flear speaks his mind about the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, which is the subject of an ambitious new book by Christoph Scheerer. He also reviews Mathias Wahls' The Modern Scandinavian, recently revamped by Karsten Müller and Hannes Langrock but still a quite unusual opening book. Top-level theory is found in Alexey Dreev's The Meran and Anti-Meran Variations with which the strong Russian GM completes his Semi-Slav repertoire series, and the bulky Scotch game by Elena Dembo and Richard Palliser.
