The chess genius Anish Giri holds the cover of this brand-new Yearbook, which is well filled with 31 opening surveys.

My personal interest went to

- The Pirc Defence, with the 150 Attack 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Be3 by Alexander Finkel

- The King's Fianchetto - North Sea Variation, part II 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 d5 4.e5 Nh5 by Panczyk & Ilczuk

- The Ruy Lopez - Jaenisch Gambit 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 f5 by Harika Dronavalli

- The Anti-Marshall Variation 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 10.exd5 Nxd5 by Lukacs & Hazai.

Fun to mention is the Halloween Gambit contribution by Leon Pliester: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nxe5, where Pliester writes: 'Sacrificing the knight on e4/e5 is an interesting idea after Black has played his g-pawn. The Halloween Gambit turns out to be a child with a pumpkin on its head: it looks scary but is not dangerous. As long as you don't try to molest the child, you are safe.'

Very interesting is the truth about the real Fajarowicz-Richter Gambit part V by Lev Gutman:

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 Ne4 4.a3 b6 In recent years 4...b6 !? has established itself as Black's most popular move, although some of the fascinating variations that make this Gambit are missing {Gutman}.

Lovely sharp is the contribution from A.C.van der Tak on the Four Pawns Attack: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e6 4.Nc3 exd5 5.cxd5 d6 6.e4 g6 7.f4 Bg7 8.Nf3 0-0 9.Be2 Re8 10.e5 dxe5 11.fxe5 Ng4.

Included in this survey is the following latest game: Sarkar, Justin (2378) - Weeramantry, Sunil (2201) [A69], Gibraltar Masters 8th Caleta (8), 02.02.2010

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.f4 0-0 6.Nf3 c5 7.d5 e6 8.Be2 exd5 9.cxd5 Re8 10.e5 dxe5 11.fxe5 Ng4 12.e6 fxe6 13.d6 Qb6 14.Ng5 Nf6 15.0-0 Bd7 16.Bc4 Nc6 17.Na4 Qa5 18.Bd2 Nb4 19.a3 b5 20.Nxc5 Qb6 21.Bxb4 bxc4 22.Kh1 a5 23.Rxf6 axb4 24.Nxd7 Qd8 25.Nxe6 Qxd7 26.Nxg7 Qxg7 27.Qd5+ Kh8 28.Rf7 Qxb2 29.Raf1 bxa3 30.d7 Rg8 31.Qd6 a2 32.Qe7 Rg7 33.d8R+ Rxd8 34.Qxd8+ Rg8 35.Rf8 1-0
