With contributions by the world’s youngest grandmaster Illya Nyzhnyk, as well as Bogdan Lalic, Alexey Kuzmin, Nenad Sulava, Jose Vilela, Ufuk Tuncer and others.

Book Reviews
Glenn Flear reviews Viktor Moskalenko’s second important book on the French: ‘The Wonderful Winawer’. A must for every French player, and it also makes for a nice comparison with the daring suggestions of ‘gingergm’ Simon Williams on his two-part DVD ‘Killer French Defence’. The third review subject is Grigory Bogdanovich’s ‘The Zukertort System: A Guide for White and Black’, a relatively obscure but dangerous system frequently employed by Artur Yusupov. David Vigorito’s ‘Attacking Chess: The King’s Indian, Volume 1’ is the fourth and last production under scrutiny – definitely a good addition to the stock of King’s Indian books on the market!
