Sosonko’s Corner
This Corner is fully dedicated to the memory of the recently deceased David Bronstein. Sosonko takes a closer look at King David´s contributions to opening theory, which reveal many aspects of the exceptionally fertile mind of the former vice-World Champion. The story is, of course, brimming with anecdotes that no-one but Sosonko could tell you.

Book Reviews
A treat for bloodthirsty players, this Review Section! Glenn Flear pronounces his verdict on Everyman´s new ‘Dangerous Weapons’ series: on the Nimzo-Indian (by Emms, Ward and Palliser) and on the Sicilian (Emms & Palliser). Even more dangerous may be the subject of Hannes Langrock: the dreaded Morra Gambit! Flear overcomes his doubts on this gambit and commends at least the work by the young German theoretician. For slightly lower-rated readers Flear recommends the prolific John Watson’s new project for Gambit, ‘Mastering the Chess Openings: Volume 1’.
