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. The Forum has, among others, Viktor Moskalenko’s analysis of the Budapest Gambit Vasily Ivanchuk played so surprisingly at the London Candidates’.
In Benjamin’s Opening Takes, Joel Benjamin studies pawn sacrifices by top grandmasters, and in Kuzmin’s Harvest, Alexey Kuzmin takes a close look at the Candidates’ tournament, which will also feature in several Surveys. Youth World Champion Alexander Ipatov debuts with a Survey, and Sergey Tiviakov is back!
