    Book Description

    Chess Developments is a brand new series providing state-of-the-art openings coverage. Chess Developments focuses on the current trends - concentrating on critical lines, theoretical novelties and powerful new ideas.

    It offers players of all levels the opportunity to keep up-to-date with current opening theory whilst also expanding and improving their repertoires.

Vigorito is well known for his opening expertise and his lucid explanations of the main plans and tactics will benefit all players.

      1886-1924

      Publisher: McFarland
      Author: Per Skjoldager and Jorn Erik Nielsen
      Year of Publication: 2012 Pages: 458
      Notation Type: Algebraic (AN)


      Book Description One of the greatest chess legends of all time, Aron Nimzowitsch (1886-1935), is best known for founding the Hypermodernism school of chess, which emerged after World War I to challenge the chess ideologies of traditional central European masters. This first full-scale biography of Nimzowitsch chronicles his early life in Denmark, his family and education, and his fascination with the game that would become the focus of his life. Also included are explorations of his tournament games and records, his dispute with influential chess teacher Siegbert Tarrasch, and his role in the development of Hypermodern Chess. With detailed accounts of nearly 450 games and the only narrative of Nimzowitsch from 1914 to 1924, a period formerly cloaked in mystery, this volume offers the most thorough profile available of one of chess's greatest innovators.
