The June Master's Bulletin is there


This month there was unfortunately a delay of about a week (busy times with Norway Chess & Dubai!) but now it's there: the June issue of our PDF & PGN magazine The Master's Bulletin. Happy to see another great issue being ready, and reaching our subscribers.

In this June issue you can expect many more articles and columns that will be instructive and beneficial for your chess (and for mine). We open the magazine with a lengthy piece by GM Joshua Friedel, who selected his five favorite top GM games played in May. Josh avoids long variations but instead gives lots of textual comments in a very personal style.

This month's Beyond the Board column is written by the now six-time U.S. Champion GM Irina Krush, who tells about her next goals, women's chess and much more.

Again we have two opening theoretical articles. GM Suat Atalik brings you up to date in the Open variation of the Ruy Lopez, which is not so popular these days but is still employed by top GMs such as Vassily Ivanchuk and Hikaru Nakamura. GM Daniel Naroditsky provides a great overview of the King's Indian Attack's main line, which has also been seen in some absolute top games recently.

IM Robert Ris again selected nine tactics, and this month his endgame column is about a complicated pawn ending. IM Arthur van de Oudeweetering gives lots of examples of queen vs rook & piece. After three new endgame studies selected by IM Yochanan Afek we again have five GM tips for beginners, this time by GM Magesh Panchanathan. The magazines ends with another Member's Analysis Analyzed by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili, the top blogs and leader boards.
