New Minev article and crosstables posted

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

A new IM Minev article was posted today. This article is the first of several that will be posted over the next few months.

Dr. Minev is taking a break from the “Mini-Lessons from Games of the 21st Century” series, and is instead offering some research files from his archive of ideas. These articles represent topics of interest to Nikolay – facinating mating patterns, interesting opening ideas, and the like – on which he has collected information and started initial work. But they are not completed, finished works. He offers them in the spirit of sharing: if a topic strikes your interest too, feel free to use Nikolay’s work and notes in any way you choose to complete the work on your own!

The next file upload in this series is due toward the end of March.

I also posted 10 new or revised crosstables today. The list of tournaments posted is:
