Benjamin's Opening Takes:

Benjamin's helicopter view on openings swoops to the choices of the 21st century's Champions: Vladimir Kramnik and Vishy Anand. After Kasparov's reign we have now entered the years of 1.d4. We get an in-depth look at the 4.Qc2 Nimzo-Indian and the Lasker Variation of the Queen's Gambit Declined.

Book Reviews:

Glenn Flear reviews Andrey Obodchuk's labour of love on The Four Knights Game, a valuable addition to existing theory. He welcomes Nicolai Pedersen's Play the Benko Gambit, as it is experiencing a revival. He compares the latest Sicilian antidotes: Experts on the Anti-Sicilian from Quality Chess, and Gawain Jones' How to beat the Sicilian Defence. He concludes the first is a must, and the second has great merit.
