Opening Surveys

Breutigam: Leningrad Dutch A87

1.d4 f5 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2 g6 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.0-0 0-0 6.c4 d6 7.Nc3 Qe8 8.Re1 Qf7
The pawn sacrifice which is being examined in this article, 9.e4, represents a highly promising continuation and should prove to be something of a headache for players of the black pieces over and beyond the surprise effect.

Kritz: Skandinavian Defence B01

1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qe5+
After the Nc3 has been put on that unfavourable square (it blocks the way for the c-pawn) the next queen move also forces a piece on to e2. If Black can catch up with his development, he can achieve a level game.

Marin: Pirc Defence B08

1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Be2 0-0 6.0-0 Bg4 7.Be3 Nc6 8.d5 Nb8
If in the classical variation of the Pirc Defence, Black plays 7…Nc6, then of course he has to know what he intends to do after 8.d5. Marin recommends Chernin’s 8…Nb8 (instead of the most frequently played 8…Bxf3).

Kuzmin: Sicilian Defence B20

1.e4 c5 2.Ne2 d6 3.g3
The move 2.Ne2 is of independent significance only after 2…d6; if Black plays a different move you would transpose to a normal open Sicilian with 3.d4. Thus the move order 2…d6 3.g3 can be considered as an Anti-Najdorf system.

Langrock: French Defence C03

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Be7 4.c3
In the closing part of his series on a repertoire for Black against the Tarrasch Variation, the flexible move 4.c3 is considered. After 4…c5 there are frequently IQP positions, in which, however, Black seems to look surprisingly well placed.

Neven: French Defence C18

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 Ne7 7.Qg4 Qc7 8.Qxg7 Rg8 9.Qxh7 cxd4 10.Ne2 Nbc6 11.f4 Bd7 12.Qd3 dxc3
This powerful article presents the latest state of theory in this variation, which is enormously important for the whole of the French Winawer. Neven comes down on Black’s side.

Marin: Ruy Lopez C69

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 0-0 9.h3 h6 10.d4 Re8 11.Nbd2 Bf8 12.Nf1 Bd7
The setup with 9…h6 and 10…Re8 is called the Smyslov Variation. Despite its surprising lack of popularity, Marin considers it to be one of the safest lines in the whole of the Closed Ruy Lopez.

Ftacnik: Blackmar-Diemer-Gambit

1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 5.Nxf3
This gambit is still justified at a specific level of play, because it is not easy for Black to neutralise White's initiative nor to make the most of his extra pawn.

Ftacnik: Chigorin Defence D07

1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6
In the second part the main continuations 3.Nc3 and 3.Nf3 are treated, without an early capture on d5. White has a large selection of possible moves, but Black can usually prove his point.

Postny: Slav Defence D15

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 a6 5.a4 e6 6.g3 dxc4 7.Bg2 c5 8.dxc5 Qxd1+ 9.Nxd1
Players with White are still looking for a good variation against the Slav with 4…a6. The system which is presented here also only leads to level positions, but in praxis it has scored surprisingly well.

Krasenkow: Semi-Slav D45

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 e6 5.e3 Nbd7 6.Qc2 Bd6 7.g4
In this contribution various 7th moves for Black are investigated. The author devotes most attention to the continuations 7…Bb4 and 7…h6, the latter even being awarded an exclamation mark. White is supposed to reply to it with the quiet 8.h3.
