New Minev column posted

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

A new IM Minev column was posted today.

The next installment in the Mini-Lessons from Short Games of the 21st Century series (Lesson 22: New Adventures in the English Opening) is due toward the end of July.

No new crosstables were posted this month, as I am instead focusing attention on final steps for publication of a new Minev book in the “50 Great Short Games” series. This series currently features titles of Bronstein, Miles, and Spielmann. To these will be added a new title featuring the games of Chigorin and Janowsky. If all goes well, the new title should be available for purchase in July.
