New & full of opening novelties: Yearbook 87

Yearbook 87 has just arrived from the printers, and in this issue of The Chess Player's Guide to Opening News you will find answers to urgent questions like:

-- Was Invanchuk's bomb 14.Qe6 in the 6.Bc4 Najdorf correct?
-- Is Paul Morphy's 5.a6 a good alternative for the Berlin Wall?
-- In which line does Sergey Tiviakov have a 6-0 'Fischer score'?
-- Has Judit found the way for Black to steer clear of Catalans?
-- How has Alon Greenfeld livened up the Alapin Sicilian for Black?
-- Is the Nimzo French with 3.Nc6 ready to become a main line?
-- Has Stellwagen put the Two Knights Defence back on the map?
-- How good is Evgeny Bareev's 5.a5 in the Bishop's Opening?
-- Is the Marshall Opening 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 d5 any good?
-- Has Nisipeanu found the antidote to the Keres Attack?
-- Is the Exchange Slav really so drawish after Andriasian's 9.f3?

"Chess players who regularly read the Yearbook can save money because there will be many opening books they don't need to buy", is what a reviewer recently said. Please have a look here.
