The last Yearbook
After 35 years, 142 Yearbooks, and more than 35.000 pages New In Chess Yearbook will come to an end.
The study of chess opening ideas is increasingly moving to online platforms and cloud-based solutions, not only for elite professionals but also for club players.
The production of a print book on opening news, four times a year, was great fun while it lasted but we feel that other media are more suitable for good coverage of today’s fast-moving developments.
‘A better look into the status of contemporary opening theory cannot be found in print anywhere.’
− Carsten Hansen at chesscafe.com
There is no better way to keep track of opening fashions.
A must-have book for both chess enthusiast and chess professional. Even the pickiest player should find something of his interest.
Recommended to all who want to sharpen their repertoire.
