Sosonko’s Corner
What did Jose Raul Capablanca think of the Sicilian? You will be surprised by the legendary World Champion’s ideas, illuminated by Genna Sosonko in this time’s Corner. An investigation follows of the merits and drawbacks of the great Cuban’s favourite reply 2.Ne2, and we are given some surprising thoughts of modern top players on the classics.

Book Reviews
These days, Glenn Flear points out, opening books seem to be all about violence: fight this, kill that, use dangerous weapons. Milos Pavlovic’s ‘fighting the Ruy Lopez’ is a case in point. It turns out to be a pragmatic repertoire book. The same can be said of Semko Semkov’s ambitious ‘Kill K.I.D.’, the cover of which would even scare Uma Thurman! ‘Win with the Stonewall Dutch’ by Sverre Johnsen and Ivar Bern contains some nicely unconventional ideas. Flear also compares the second edition of ‘Pirc Alert’, by Alburt and Chernin, with ‘Dangerous Weapons: The Pirc and Modern’ by Palliser, McNab & Vigus. As always, several refreshing examples illustrate Flear’s own take on the material.
