008 One More 25th Anniversary

Coinciding with our 25th anniversary, Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov celebrated that their unique rivalry also started a quarter of a century ago, with an exhibition match in Valencia.

018 Carlsen Breaks 2800 Barrier Now that we knew he was working with Kasparov all eyes were on Magnus Carlsen when he arrived in Nanjing. What happened next can only be described as historic. Playing with unrestrained ambitions in every game the Norwegian outclassed a category 21 field with a 3002(!) performance.

024 Anand's Favourite Websites What websites does the current World Champion visit to read up on his interests outside of chess?

028 Is 40 the New 20? Following a severe form crisis Vasily Ivanchuk bounced back to win the Jermuk Grand Prix. Runner-up Levon Aronian secured the top spot in the overall GP standings.

052 New In Chess and I It was heart-warming and gratifying to see that New In Chess means so much to our readers. Here are the winners.

056 Have You Ever Been Experienced? An invitation to play in the NH tournament convinced Peter Svidler that he was now officially Experienced. Both as a grandmaster and as a prolific writer, we may add.

076 Mikhail Botvinnik, Homo Politicus Genna Sosonko reveals a lesser known side of the former world champion, a man of unshakable political convictions.

085 S.O.S.: Preparing the Staunton Gambit Jeroen Bosch proposes 2.f3!? against the Dutch Defence.

090 Lev On A Roll Again Having lost his first game he steamrolled the field to finish first with one round to spare. Levon Aronian was in a class of his own at the Grand Slam Final in Bilbao, posting yet another major victory in a year that he calls his best so far.

100 Champions' League in Zurich Vladimir Kramnik not only won the star-studded rapid tournament in Zurich, he also had a great time seeing his colleagues again.

109 The Oldest Chess Club Richard Forster's book on the history of the Zurich Chess Club brought Hans Ree back to that bright evening when he saw Mikhail Tal for the first time.

112 Of Old Dogs and an Englishman He may poke fun at his diminished powers, but at 44 Nigel Short is enjoying a second youth.

116 Bring Back the Cold War! Jonathan Rowson wonders what is needed to revive chess as a sport that attracts global interest.

120 Top Giri Fifteen-year-old Anish Giri became the youngest Dutch champion in history.

124 Bobby Fischer's Openings The American champion never explained how he thought about openings. But he left clues.

136 Recent Endgames that Caught the Eye Join Jan Timman in his endgame laboratory.

140 Of Once and Future Kings Garry Kasparov looks back on his reunion with Karpov and does not hide his pride about Carlsen's stellar performance in Nanjing.

142 Just Checking Guess what's Veselin Topalov's biggest fear?
