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.
