Baadur Jobava himself explains the big fun of the Jobava opening (1.d4, 2.Bf4, 3.Nc3), and Rene Olthoff pays tribute to Genna Sosonko: his Dragons, his Catalans, his deep knowledge and sparkling personality.

Joel Benjamin continues his column Repertoire Building , helping club players to create a synergetic set of non-labor-intensive lines. Here he concentrates on organizing an anti-IQP repertoire for Black.

In the 256 pages of this issue of the Yearbook you will further find answers to urgent questions such as:

  • How did Karjakin built his Candidates’ victory on a gritty QI line for Black?

  • Which radical change did Wojtaszek initiate in the Rubinstein Nimzo-Indian?

  • How do you crush a 2700+ player in the Berlin?

  • Why would you play the ‘patzer check’ 7.Qa4+ in the Exchange Grünfeld?

  • With which risky sideline did Li Chao shake up a 2600+ player’s Queen’s Gambit?

  • Which beautiful novelty did Denis Khismatullin introduce in the Krause Slav?

  • How did Adrien Demuth beat Anand with black in a half-forgotten Neo-Steinitz?

  • What tricky Alapin Sicilian should you avoid at all cost according to Adhiban Baskaran?

  • What to do against 6.g3 in the Paulsen Variation?

  • How did Vladimir Potkin surprise Wei Yi in the Hartston Variation of the Anti-Grünfeld?

  • Is Black in trouble in Levon Aronian’s pet line with 4...Bb4 in the English Four Knights?

  • How does Wesley So deal with the Breyer Variation?

  • What is Christian Bauer’s way to get active with black against 1.b3?

  • What is the sense of Magnus Carlsen’s 9.Bb5 sortie in the Steinitz French?

  • With which novelty did Mariya Muzychuk nearly knock Hou Yifan off her feet in the Open Ruy Lopez?

  • What can we learn from the World Champions in the Chigorin Spanish?

Moreover: 75 topical opening exercises, Glenn Flear reviews 5 recent opening books and Alexey Kuzmin harvests a lot of news at the Candidates.
