Forum
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 Alexander Bangiev, Arthur van de Oudeweetering, Pavel Martynov, Ahmed Odeev and many others.

Columns
In his Opening Takes, Joel Benjamin looks at important tendencies in the latest top tournaments, and Alexey Kuzmin collects the most important novelties from the Tal Memorial in Moscow.

Book Reviews
In this issue’s Reviews Glenn Flear checks three opening books that have in common that, instead of detailed computer analysis where things can easily go wrong, they offer solid solutions: "The Berlin Defence" by Igor Lysyj & Roman Ovetchkin, "Slay the Sicilian" by Tim Taylor, and "The Modern French" by Dejan Antic and Branimir Maksimovic. He also takes a peek at Arkady Naiditsch’s new Chess Evolution series.
