    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.

    • Formation Attacks
      As a Chess Master who has spent many years playing aggressive and attacking chess, I was quite dismayed during a recent visit to my local bookstore. I was in search of a book that covered an array of attacks against many Pawn formations in an organized fashion. Needless to say, my search came up empty. The books on attacking fell short in many ways. Many of the books were simply a small collection of attack games with no instruction about the art of attacking or about the skills required to become a great attacker.
