The Yearbook contains all major new chess opening developments in 35 chapters. Each issue brings dozens of new ideas on the cutting edge of modern chess theory. An accessible way to keep up to date with main line opening theory.
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. Including some very special Olympiad coverage by Viktor Moskalenko and Guliskhan Nakhbayeva!
In Benjamin’s Opening Takes and Kuzmin’s Harvest, grandmasters Joel Benjamin and Alexey Kuzmin present their views on novelties and opening tendencies in the latest top tournaments.
In this issue, Glenn Flear reviews Mayhem in the Morra, the latest Sicilian craze, by Marc Esserman, Victor Bologan’s new opening book The Powerful Catalan, The Complete Slav by Konstantin Sakaev, and Lars Schandorff’s 1.d4 – The Indian Defences.
