The book presents eighty-six of the strongest tournaments played during the last decade, selected by following criteria:

  • they were round-robin tournaments,
  • a normal time-control was used,
  • there was a minimum number of six participants,
  • it was Category 17 (or higher).

The tournaments are presented in chronological order. Along with a crosstable of the event, each tournament is represented by

  • the best game of the tournament winner,
  • the best game played at the tournament,
  • the game with the most important theoretical novelty.
  • there is also a selection of game fragments, the most beautiful combinations and endings.

Also, there are three tables given at the end of the book. The first, the tournament category statistics, the second table is the tournament winner statistics and the third table provides statistics on all the tournament participants.

During the period 2001-2004, only twenty Category 17 (or higher) tournaments were organized. In the following four-year period, 2005-2008, there were forty-nine of them. An increase of almost 150%. The most fruitful year was 2009, with seventeen tournaments of the highest category.
