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.
The Grünfeld (1.d4,Nf6; 2.c4,g6; 3.Nc3/Nf3/g3/f3, d5) is an opening which is currently very popular at Grandmaster level and, consequently, new ideas are being unearthed on a regular basis. In this book, David Vigorito examines 51 of the most important and instructive Grünfeld games in recent years, each of which demonstrate the latest thinking for both Black and White. He covers the Exchange Variation with 7.Bc4, 7.Be3 and 7.Nf3 as well as the currently popular Russian Variation, lines with Bf4 and Bg5, the Fianchetto System and the Anti-Grunfeld line 3.f3. He highlights key developments in each system and explains the reasoning behind them in this user-friendly book.
