En rikholdig utgave av ChessBase Magazine med alle de gode åpningsartiklene om seriøse varianter.

Også levende filmstoff som Anand-kommentarer til VM-kampen mot Kramnik og diverse nyttig treningsstoff. Rogozenko ser på det han kaller Carlsen-varianten i dragen. Åpningsartiklene er denne gang disse:

Prié: Nimzo London System A46

1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.Bf4 c5 The author takes a critical look at Moskalenko’s article on 4.e3 Qb6 in CBM 125 and then concentrates in detail on what he considers a superior move: 4.c3!

Stohl: Caro-Kann B12

1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 c5 (4.c4) With 3…c5 Black successfully avoids the main variations. A very recent reply is then the radical 4.c4 (or also first 4.Nf3, and then c2-c4).

Rogozenco: Sicilian Defence B78

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0-0 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.Bc4 Bd7 10.0-0-0 In 2008 there have been some developments in the Dragon Variation. Rogozenco sums up the innovations in the Chinese Dragon (10…Rb8) and in the Carlsen-Variation 10…Ne5 11.Bb3 Rc8 12.Kb1 a6.

Langrock: French Defence C03

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Be7 4.Bd3 c5 5.dxc5 Nf6 6.Qe2 After 4.Ngf3 in the first part, Langrock this time deals with what he considers the more critical variation 4.Bd3. But here too things are ok for Black, and from the position in the diagram he even examines two possible moves (6…Nc6 and 6…0-0).

Kritz: French Defence C11

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.f4 c5 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.Be3 Be7 8.Qd2 0-0 Holding back with the capture on d4 is actually very venomous, because after, e.g., 9.0-0-0? there is the strong reply 9…c4. However, Kritz shows how, beginning with 9.dxc5, White gets good chances of an opening advantage.

Karolyi: Ruy Lopez C68

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Bxc6 dxc6 5.0-0 Qd6 6.Na3 b5 The Exchange Variation of the Ruy Lopez remains a popular choice, and it is important to have a good weapon against it. Karolyi offers a repertoire for Black based on 5…Qd6.

Postny: Ruy Lopez C88

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 0-0 8.h3 Bb7 9.d3 d5 Like 8.a4, the move 8.h3 is one of the important Anti-Marshall Variations. But after 9…d5, as analysed by Postny, we are again reminded of the Marshall Attack: Black sacrifices a pawn and obtains good compensation for it.

Marin: Ruy Lopez C90

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 Na5 9.Bc2 c5 10.d4 Qc7 If as Black you play the Chigorin Variation (8…0-0 9.h3 Na5 10.Bc2 c5), then adopting the Accelerated Chigorin Variation as introduced by Marin allows you to avoid the Yates Variation (8…0-0 9.d4).

Breutigam: Queen's Gambit D06

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c5 As the author shows, it is not at all easy for White to obtain an advantage against the bold pawn advance. The danger of a draw is high, but if you do not know what you are doing you can quickly land up in worse positions.

Rogozenco: Slav Defence D10

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 dxc4 4.e4 b5 5.a4 b4 6.Na2 Nf6 7.e5 Nd5 8.Bxc4 e6 9.Nf3 Ba6 3.Nc3 allows White to avoid numerous lines, but the immediate 3…dxc4 constitutes a disadvantage. Black can easily equalise with the variation introduced here and above all with the surprisingly simple 9…Ba6.

Ftacnik: Slav Defence D11

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 Bg4 5.h3 Bh5 The author follows up his article in CBM 126, where he examined 5…Bxf3. After 5…Bh5 the bishop is at first preserved, though it is usually exchanged later on g6. White probably does not obtain an opening advantage.

Krasenkow: Semi-Slav D45

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 e6 5.e3 Nbd7 6.Qc2 Bd6 7.g4 Nxg4 8.Rg1 Why should one not actually accept the Shabalov-Shirov Gambit? After a Morozevich-Kramnik game, this logical continuation could gain in popularity; as Krasenkow shows, it is surprisingly full of possibilities.

Marin: Catalan Opening E05

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 d5 4.Nf3 Be7 5.Bg2 0-0 6.0-0 dxc4 7.Qc2 a6 8.a4 Bd7 9.Rd1 Bc6 10.Nc3 After 8.a4 and once more 9.Rd1, White can in this case choose a sideline, but nevertheless there are still prospects of an opening advantage. Marin once more analyses the variations in great depth.

Grivas: Queen's Indian Defence E16-E19

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6 4.g3 Bb7 5.Bg2 In the second part of his repertoire for White against the Queen’s Indian, Grivas looks into the old main line 4…Bb7. Our author is once more able to offer his some of his own games for consideration.
