The Lazy Man’s Sicilian from Bronznik & Steve Giddins is an expanded and updated work from Valeri Bronznik 2004 book “Sizilianisch fúr Müssiggänger Kania Verlag 2004.
In Yearbook issue 73 Srdjan Sale  described Bronznik work as a model for a good openings book so I am pleased that the fundamentals of
 this masterpiece has not be changed by Steve Giddins for this English translation.
Giddins has updated the theory for developments over the past 11 years where several Yearbook Surveys and other relevant printed material has been added,
and Giddins engine of choice for this book has been Stockfish 5.64.
A great game of interest is Hage,Henk H - Van der Berkmortel,Theo JG [B44]

Unfortunately Henk Hage,1943 – 2001 was not aware that his game made it in this master work.
Conclusion: This is a must have openings book!


Risk & Bluff in Chess
The Art of Taking Calculated Risks
by Vladimir Tukmakov

New in Chess
http://www.newinchess.com/
220  pages
Price € 24,95
ISBN 978-90-5691-595-7



Why are strong players often so lucky in complicated positions? We all know the Magic from Tal with his unique attacking style.
Was it all risk and bluff? Grandmaster Vladimir Tulmakov reveals in this book the secrets of calculated risks,all well explained at the hand of 106 games.
All material is well packed in the following chapters: Mikhail Tal:The start of a new era
Bluff in the opening,The madness of the brave,The logic of the irrational,By right of strong,Masculine Desperation,In the grip of passion,When a win
is the only acceptable result and at last The last Chance.
Very readable are the back ground stories in the book as for example as the move 11.Kd1!?
Tal – Botvinnik Moscow Wch match 1960:1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Bxc3 6.bxc3 Qc7 7.Qg4 f5 8.Qg3 Ne7 9.Qxg7 Rg8 10.Qxh7 cxd4.
The history of this far from obvious move is quite obscure.
One of the legends,propagated by Tal all his life,has it that the move 11.Kd1 was spotted by Tal’s trainer Alexander Boblents,in a chess
magazine which was lying randomly on the floor,and this happened literally half an hour before the start of this game!And it seems the
challenger,without looking at any of the numerous tricky variations,just said ‘Excellent,I will play it’.This is a lovely story,fully supporting the legend
of the Riga Magician,but such stories rarely pass the test of common sense.11.Kd1!? was introduced into practice by Gligoric,in a game against
Petrosian.This was at the 1959Candidates tournament,the very event won so famously by Tal!
Going throw this book I realized why he is currently the coach of the Dutch star Anish Giri!
Conclusion: Smashing!

Correspondence  Database 2015 is a heavy loaded collection  of correspondence games, the American economic basis for correspondence chess can be credited to  the New Jersey banker John Lee,who served in Congress from 1867 to 1873 and in 1881-1882.
In a later interview with a local newspaper,Lee took well deserved credit for inventing America’s “penny postcard,” some thirty years after Gossip claims its origin in Europe.
Correspondence Chess in America by B.Avery McFarland 2000.
Nowadays correspondence games  are played by mail and by webserver. This CD contains 1 274 459 games,all played from 1804 until 2015.
So you will find all games from the World championships correspondence chess, but also European chess championships plus various National championships.
Compared with Correspondence Database 2013 we have here over 232316 more correspondence games!
The nowadays correspondence player or may I say computer chess player is well prepared with fast computers and multi core processors.
And that makes these correspondence game interesting for latest chess developments because correspondence chess players enjoy the latest lines of chess theory.
One of the greatest correspondence players is certainly CJS Purdy,the first world champion is correspondence chess,the story is that Purdy did not loose a game of correspondence chess between 1937 and 1952!
Not many are aware of it but when Purdy was educated at the Cranbook School in Tasmania one of his classmates was future film star Errol Flynn.
Purdy decided at the age of 16 to become a full time chess writer and player.
Included on this DVD is a correspondence chess players base from around 80.000 entries.

Emanuel Lasker born, December 24, 1868 – died January 11, 1941) was a German chess player, mathematician, and philosopher who was World Chess Champion for 27 years and well from 1894 till 1921.
John Nunn wrote in his book: John Nunn’s Chess Course Gambit 2014; I decded on Lasker for variety of reasons. His chess credentials are impeccable. as he was World champion for 27 years, longer than any other person. Moreover he had what is often termed a universal style, in that he could handle all types of position well, and there fore a study of his games would
Benefitts all aspects of the reader’s play.
On this DVD you shall find all Lasker games 1224,Lasker trainings questions 106 games, tables, background knowledge, and even a short  biography.
Interesting to mention is that there are detailed investigations of Lasker’s playing style (by Knaak, Rogozenco, Stohl, etc.
Plus a Lasker powerbook with the world champion’s opening repertoire as a variation tree.
Lasker’s most famous game is probably Lasker,Emanuel - Bauer,Johann Hermann [A03]
Amsterdam Amsterdam (1), 26.08.1889
[Kasparov]
This game contains one of the beautiful combinations of the young Lasker which created a blueprint for future similar double bishop sacrifices that destroyed the lives of dozens of his opponents' kings. Diese Partie beinhaltet eine der schönsten Kombinationen des jungen Lasker, die späteren Läuferpaaropfern als Vorbild diente und zahlreiche gegnerische Könige das Leben kostete. 1.f4 d5 2.e3 Nf6 3.b3 e6 4.Bb2 Be7 5.Bd3 b6 6.Nf3 Bb7 7.Nc3 Nbd7 8.0-0 0-0 9.Ne2 c5 10.Ng3 Qc7 11.Ne5 Nxe5 12.Bxe5 Qc6 13.Qe2 a6
r4rk1/1b2bppp/ppq1pn2/2ppB3/5P2/1P1BP1N1/P1PPQ1PP/R4RK1 w - - 0 0
After very passive Black play in the opening White's army is ready for action, and Lasker begins the final storm Nach sehr passivem schwarzen Spiel in der Eröffnung stehen die weißen Figuren zum Angriff bereit. Lasker beginnt nun die entscheidende Attacke. 14.Nh5 Nxh5 [14...d4 15.Bxf6 Bxf6 16.Qg4 Kh8 (16...e5 17.Be4!) 17.Rf3 Rg8 18.Bxh7!] 15.Bxh7+! [15.Qxh5 f5 achieves nothing. führt zu nichts.] 15...Kxh7 16.Qxh5+ Kg8 17.Bxg7!! Today Lasker might have tried to copyright this idea. Heutzutage würde Lasker vielleicht versuchen, diese Idee urheberrechtlich für sich in Anspruch zu nehmen. 17...Kxg7 18.Qg4+ Kh7 19.Rf3 e5 20.Rh3+ Qh6 21.Rxh6+ Kxh6 Black has narrowly escaped mate, but Schwarz ist knapp dem Matt entronnen, aber 22.Qd7! wins a piece and the game. gewinnt eine Figur und die Partie. 22...Bf6 23.Qxb7 Kg7 24.Rf1 Rab8 25.Qd7 Rfd8 26.Qg4+ Kf8 27.fxe5 Bg7 28.e6 Rb7 29.Qg6 f6 30.Rxf6+ Bxf6 31.Qxf6+ Ke8 32.Qh8+ Ke7 33.Qg7+ Kxe6 34.Qxb7 Rd6 35.Qxa6 d4 36.exd4 cxd4 37.h4 d3 38.Qxd3 1-0.
17.Bxg7 and 15.Bxh7+!! established Lasker’s reputation,as Carlos Torre did with 25.Bf6!! against lasker at Moscow 1925 and Fischers 17….Be6!! against Donald Byrne.
There are not many Lasker games between 1927 and Zurich 1934 but I did like the following one: Lasker,Emanuel - Bernstein,Sidney Norman [B03]
New York clock sim (1:10) New York, 08.11.1928
1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.c4 Nb6 4.d4 d6 5.f4 dxe5 6.fxe5 g6 7.Nc3 Bg7 8.Be3 c5 9.dxc5 N6d7 10.e6 fxe6 11.Nf3 Qa5 12.Rc1 Nxc5 13.Bd4 e5 14.Nxe5 Bxe5 15.Bxe5 Nd3+ 16.Bxd3 Qxe5+ 17.Qe2 Nc6 18.0-0 Qxe2 19.Bxe2 Be6 20.Rfe1 0-0-0 21.Bf3 Bxc4 22.Bxc6 bxc6 23.Rxe7 Rd7 24.Rxd7 Kxd7 25.Kf2 Re8 26.b3 Bf7 27.Na4 Re5 28.Rc5 Kd6 29.Rxe5 Kxe5 30.Ke3 Bd5 31.g3 Be4 32.Nc5 Bb1 33.a3 Ba2 34.Kd3 Kd5 35.b4 a5 36.Kc3 axb4+ 37.Kxb4 Bc4 38.Nd7 Bd3 39.a4 Kd4 40.a5 Ke3 41.Kc5 Kf2 42.Nf8 Kg2 43.Nxh7 Kxh2 44.g4 Kg3 45.g5 Bb5 46.Kb6 1-0.
Conclusion: This is a must buy for all lovers of the great Lasker!

First of all I would like to start with the Tournaments file,good for 1772 entries where a small 32 of them cover excellent annotations as the following one from Vladimir Kramnik,(2783) - Caruana,Fabiano (2805) [D78]
Dortmund SuperGM 43rd Dortmund (5), 03.07.2015
[Sagar Shah]
After four rounds Kramnik was jointly leading the tournament with Liviu Dieter Nisipeanu with 3.0/4. Caruana was half a point behind with 2.5/4. 1.Nf3 d5 2.g3 g6 3.Bg2 Bg7 4.d4 Nf6 5.0-0 0-0 6.c4 c6 The solid setup against the Fianchetto Grunfeld is one of the toughest systems for white to crack. But who better than the big Vlad to give it a try! 7.Nbd2 [7.Qb3 has become quite popular recently.;
7.cxd5 cxd5 Even though White has an extra tempo I don't believe he has serious chances of obtaining an advantage.;
7.b3 dxc4 8.bxc4 c5 is quite a heavily analyzed line.] 7...a5 [7...Bf5 is much more common. A typical line of play would go something like this: 8.b3 Ne4 9.Bb2 Nd7 10.Nh4 Nxd2 11.Qxd2 Be6 12.e4 dxe4 13.Bxe4 Bh3 14.Rfe1² with a slight edge for White. This had been played between Nakamura and Leko in 2012 London GP.] 8.b3 a4 9.Ba3!? [9.Bb2 is the more common move but î?§a3 is the latest innovation and has been scoring quite decently for White. 9...Bf5 with an interesting position.] 9...axb3 10.axb3 Bf5 11.Nh4 Be6 12.Re1 White prepares the move e4. [12.e4? dxe4 13.Nxe4 Nxe4 14.Bxe4 Qxd4µ;
12.Qc2!? has a nice trap of î?§xe7 unleashing a discovered attack on the rook on a8.  12...dxc4? (12...Nbd7 13.e3² (13.e4?! dxe4 14.Nxe4 Nxe4 15.Qxe4 Qb6³) ) 13.Bxe7!±] 12...Ne4 13.Bxe4!? A very unorthodox exchange by Kramnik. He is trying to spice up the position. [13.e3 was a safer choice with a slightly preferable position for White.;
13.Nxe4 dxe4 14.Bxe4 Qxd4 15.Qxd4 Bxd4 16.Bb2! Rxa1 17.Bxa1 Bg7= would have lead to a handshake pretty soon.] 13...dxe4 14.Nxe4 [14.e3= was necessary as the move chosen by Kramnik in the game leads to a clearly inferior position.] 14...Qxd4 [14...Bxd4? 15.Bxe7!± just drops a pawn.] 15.Qc2!? This is objectively a bad move. However, it takes many precise moves from Caruana to prove that. If Black were to play anything apart from î?§f5 on the next move then White has a fine position. [15.Qxd4 Bxd4 16.Bb2 Rxa1 17.Bxa1 Bb6³ Keeping the double bishops. Of course, this was not the reason why Kramnik had given up his light squared bishop on e4.] 15...Bf5! An excellent tactical resource that might have been missed or underestimated by Kramnik. [15...Qxa1?! 16.Rxa1 Bxa1 17.Bxe7± The queen will prove to be much stronger in such a position, with the knights on the board, than the two rooks.;
15...Nd7 16.Rad1 Qb6 17.Bxe7 Rfe8 18.Bd6÷ Black has compensation but White is not worse.;
15...Re8 16.Bb2 Rxa1 17.Bxa1 Qb6 18.Bxg7 Kxg7 19.Rd1=] 16.Nxf5 gxf5 17.Ng5 [17.Nd2 Qc3! is the neat little point. 18.Qa2 Qa5µ The exchange is lost.;
17.Nc5 Rxa3 18.Rxa3 Qxc5µ] 17...Qg4 The queen attacks the knight and the bishop on g7 uncovers an attack on the a1-rook. 18.f4 Bxa1 19.Rxa1 h6?! [19...c5! would have given Caruana a nearly decisive advantage. The idea is to develop the knight on c6 where it will be much more active than on d7 as in the game. 20.Bb2 (20.Qc3 Nc6 21.Bxc5 Rxa1+ 22.Qxa1 Qxe2-+ The is the difference of not playing h6 and pushing the knight back to f3.) 20...Rxa1+ 21.Bxa1 Nc6µ] 20.Nf3 Nd7 [20...c5 would no longer be strong because 21.Qc3 Nc6 22.Bxc5³ when Black's advantage is reduced to a minimum.] 21.Rd1! Kramnik takes his best practical chance to keep the rooks on board. 21...Rxa3 22.Rxd7 Qh3! Keeping an eye on the white king. 23.Qc3 e6?! This terribly weakens the f6 square and gives White enough counterplay against the f7-point. [23...Rfa8 would have been much stronger as after 24.Rxe7?! (24.Rxb7? Ra1+ 25.Kf2 Rf1+ 26.Ke3 Qg2-+) 24...Ra1+ 25.Kf2 (25.Ne1 Rb1 (25...Rd1 26.b4 b6 27.c5 bxc5 28.bxc5 h5-+) 26.b4 b6 The rook on e7 cannot give up the e-file is the main reason for the zugzwang. 27.c5 b5 28.Rd7 Re8-+) 25...Rf1+ 26.Ke3 Qg2-+ The attack against the white king breaks through. The most critical move î?¥f6 is refuted in the following manner: 27.Qf6 Rxf3+! (27...Qf2+?! 28.Kd3 Rd1+ (28...Rd8+ 29.Kc2±) 29.Kc3 Rc1+ 30.Kd2 (30.Kd3? Rd8+-+) 30...Ra2+ 31.Kd3 (31.Kxc1 Qf1++-) 31...Rd1+ 32.Kc3 Rc1+ 33.Kd3=) 28.exf3 Qg1+ 29.Kd3 Qd1+ 30.Ke3 (30.Kc3? Qa1+-+) 30...Qe1+ 31.Kd3 Rd8+! 32.Kc2 Rd2+ 33.Kc3 Re2+-+] 24.Rxb7 Rfa8 25.Kf2 Ra1 26.Ke3! The king is safe on the e3-square. 26...Rf1 27.Qf6 Rf8 Once the rook has to passively defend the f7-point, it is clear that White cannot be worse. 28.Rd7 [28.Kd4!? In this age where we are seeing king walks in almost every other tournament this move would have been really loved by the spectators. It doesn't really change the assessment of the position but Black has to quickly find a way to get his queen into the game. Most probably the game would end something like this 28...Qg2 29.Qxh6 Qxe2 30.Qg5+ Kh7 31.Qh4+ Kg8 32.Qg5+=] 28...Rb1 29.Rb7 c5 30.Rb5 Rf1 31.Nd2? It is quite possible that Kramnik was under time pressure as this gives Black the golden opportunity to get a winning position. [31.Rxc5 Rxf3+ 32.exf3 Qxh2= would have ended in a draw.] 31...Rc1 32.Qb2 [32.Nf3 Qf1! 33.Qxh6 Rc3+ 34.Kd2 Qc1#] 32...Rd1 33.Qc2 Rh1 White has lost all his co-ordination and now the Black pieces weave a deadly attack. 34.Nf3 Qg2 35.Qc3 Rf1 36.Qf6 Rf2 37.Kd3 [37.Qb2 Rxf3+-+] 37...Rxe2 38.Ng5 Rd2+ What an exciting game. First Kramnik plays the opening in dubious fashion and gets a minus position. Caruana makes one inaccurate move and just when we felt that the game was heading towards a draw, Kramnik makes a very huge mistake by playing î?¨d2. After that Caruana finished off the game to perfection.[38...Rd2+ 39.Kc3 Rc2+ 40.Kd3 Qd2#]  0-Others are: 1. Nakamura analyses his swift black win against Aronian (English with 1.c4 e5 and 3...Bc5)
