YB/75:Readers from all over the world join in discussions of previous surveys. Both (grand)masters and club players shed their light on new opening developments and search for the truth together. With contributions by Ruslan Scherbakov and an afterthought by Viktor Kortchnoi, who solves an intriguing riddle around a 1963 game against Matanovic!

Sosonko's Corner
YB/75:In this extended column, Genna Sosonko provides us with a bird’s eye view of the enormous impact that Garry Kasparov has had on opening theory. From his younger years, through his famous World Championship matches with Karpov, right to his last novelties in Linares 2005. Kasparov’s theoretical approach was revolutionary. He used the computer but did not overestimate its abilities. The man from Baku could beat all his rivals with his home preparation, which was an extraordinary broad mixture of modern, ancient and half-forgotten opening lines. Kasparov has stopped playing chess, but his work could keep top grandmasters, who cannot sit still for one week as it is, busy for years. And like many of his colleagues, Sosonko doesn’t rule out a comeback…

Book Review
YB/75:Supply and demand has motivated proficient writer Stefan Kindermann to write his ‘The Spanish Exchange Variation’ in English instead of his mother tongue, as Glenn Flear explains. Admiring its clarity, Flear regrets that this book is too thin! In Konstantin Sakaev and Semko Semkov’s profound ‘Latest Trends in the Semi-Slav: ANTI-MERAN’, Flear has spotted some amazing insights. And he finds Gary Lane’s ‘Ideas Behind Modern Chess Openings: Black’ more relevant than Lane’s version for White.
Who could better review ‘Play the Sicilian Dragon’ by Edward Dearing than our guest author Sergey Tiviakov? Read his expert opinion, but perhaps you should read the book first!
