Description / Yearbook 81

Readers from all over the world join in discussions of previous surveys. Titled players, correspondence players and club players shed their light on opening developments and search together for the truth. With contributions by Efstratios Grivas, Yochanan Afek, Tansel Turgut and many others.

Sosonko’s Corner
Genna Sosonko remembers a conversation with Evgeny Sveshnikov who told him that the Scotch move 3.d4! was better than the Ruy Lopez move 3.Bb5. In a special Survey Sosonko shows that the Scotch gives White just a small advantage, but for real players like Walter Browne ‘a little is enough’.

Book Reviews
Opening guru Sveshnikov returns in Glenn Flear’s Reviews with his book on the Advance French. In his customary lucid style, the English GM has a look at two wider-range opening books: Watson & Schiller’s ‘How to Succeed in the Queen Pawn Openings’ and ‘Chess Openings for White, Explained: Winning with 1.e4’ by Alburt, Dzindzichashvili, Perelshteyn and Lawrence, the latter being complementary to ‘Winning with 1.d4’. Useful weapons for amateur players, as is Karpov’s and Podgaets’s ‘Caro-Kann Defence’, a book with ‘charming comments’ that marks the start of a new series by the 12th World Champion.
