What's new in April 2004

Hi guys!

Chris

I am catching up slowly, and this month's offerings are:

Emms-Longson: Positional play turns tactical as a GM 'blunders' the exchange against an up-and-coming England junior.

Sollid-Lie: Another non-standard Dragon move order with an early black queen sortie throwing a spanner in the works:









Karklins-Arnold: How not to play the Black side of the Levenfish Dragon.








A theme worth taking note of.

Konijn-Borst: Another non-Yugoslav Attack line that can be dangerous for the unprepared Dragon player.

Lahno-Jobava: I promised last month another idea for Black in the 9 0-0-0 d5 10 Kb1 Yugoslav:








and though I still feel happy with the old stuff, here I deliver.

Szabo-Boros: Regarding the 9 Bc4 Yugoslav Attack, it seems that ...Qa5 refuses to die. But why are strong White players eschewing the critical lines?

Toma-Cernousek: A delightfully simple game for Black in the Chinese variation.

May up soon and then we'll have June! I'm a poet and don't I know it!

Bye for now.
