A swindle is not about luck, writes GM David Smerdon in our latest issue. Provoking an error when you are losing a game is as much a skill as any other chess technique. With a set of outrageous and instructive examples, Smerdon explains how swindles work. Great stuff! Magnus Carlsen’s second Peter Heine Nielsen reveals how his boss won the World Rapid and the World Blitz Championships. Surprisingly, Vladimir Kramnik returned briefly from retirement to finish third at the Blitz, and the former World Champion analyses one of his games in his usual crystal-clear way. Other stories to enjoy and lessons to be learned:

  • Jan Timman: who will win the Candidates Tournament?

  • Ding Liren won $294,833 in the Grand Chess Tour and annotates his brilliant win against MVL in London.

  • Judit Polgar: what I learned from Vishy Anand.

  • Matthew Sadler reviews five new books: The Anand Files, Soviet Outcast, Understanding Maroczy Structures, The Queen’s Gambit and Advanced Chess Tactics.

  • Alexandra Kosteniuk explains her nail-biting last-round win in the Women’s GP.

  • Nepo qualifies for the Candidates: a report from Jeruzalem by Erwin l’Ami with annotations by Anish Giri.

  • Just Checking: what was the last time IM John Bartholomew cried?

  • A fascinating interview with Kamran Shirazi, still chasing the grandmaster title at 67.

  • Howard Stern, chess player.

  • Openings that save time: Max Dlugy tells you what his favourite blitz openings are, and why.

  • And much more!
