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 Viktor Moskalenko, Bogdan Lalic, Pavel Skatchkov, Jose Vilela, Endre Vegh, Willy Hendriks and many others.
 
Sosonko's Corner
This time's Corner is about Ivanchuk's experimental early queen outings at the Foros tournament. Genna Sosonko shows the background of Chuky's daring exploits, looking at other openings and previous top encounters and proving that we should never think too dogmatically in chess - not even in the opening.
 
Book Reviews
Glenn Flear reviews the 'lightweight' Play 1 b4! by Yuri Lapshun and Nick Conticello, finding more meat in James Vigus's Play the Slav, which contains good research and high-quality but readable analysis. As an author of an earlier book on the 4…a6 Slav, Flear takes an in-depth look at The Chebanenko Slav According to Bologan and discovers that a lot has happened in this fast-growing opening in the past five years. Next, he takes the opportunity of Chess Informant's jubilee issue 100 to discuss the relevance of Informant's pioneer work today, and investigates whether a tome like Nick de Firmian's Modern Chess Openings is useful for professional players, or whether it's suitable for club players only.
