Sosonko’s Corner
What does Genna Sosonko think about recent developments in his old pet line, the Sicilian Dragon? In this issue’s Corner, dedicated to the 65th birthday of his illustrious friend grandmaster Roman Dzindzichashvili, Sosonko shows he is still on top of things. He also reveals a surprising view on a topical line of the Max Lange Gambit.

Book Reviews
Glenn Flear scrutinizes every inch of a book, including the cover. The first book he reviews this time is Alexander Beliavsky and Adrian Mikhalchishin’s ‘The Petrosian System Against the QID’, a variation that needed serious covering for a long time – something we can leave to these seasoned grandmasters. More limited in scope is Andrew Greet’s ‘play the Queen’s Indian’, but it’s a great introduction to the QID. A new monumental book on 1.d4 openings is Lars Schandorff’s ‘Playing the Queen’s Gambit’, which focuses on the sharpest lines. And Valentin Bogdanov’s latest effort, ‘Chess Explained: The Grünfeld’ is so inspiring it might even make you turn off your computer for a while!
