The Berlin Wall on ECF short list
The English Chess Federation recently announced their short list for their Book of the Year prize and we are delighted that John Cox’s The Berlin Wall is nominated. The short list is on the ECF site
Opening books rarely feature in Book of the Year prizes, so it is good to see The Berlin Wall receiving well deserved attention (in my biased opinion). As a book, it is much more than a list of variations – I would claim there is real chess understanding. Anyway, doing book reviews of our own books may be a new blog low, so I’ll stop here.
