David Vigorito

The Main Line Slav arises after 1.d4,d5; 2.c4,c6; 3.Nf3,Nf6; 4.Nc3,dxc4; and has been popular at the highest level for many years, featuring in several World Championship matches starting with the Alekhine-Euwe clashes. There are many different ways to treat the opening and resulting middlegame positions, which explains it's appeal to players of varying styles.

Here I.M. David Vigorito examines the strategic and tactical ideas available to both sides in seven chapters featuring 25 extensively annotated games played at international level. The first six chapters consider the play after White's most popular 5th move 5.a4, whilst chapter seven looks at the quiet 5.e3 and Geller's 5.e4 gambit line. The book offers enough material for any club or tournament level player to play the Main Line Slav from either side.

Chess Explained books offer an understanding of an opening and the middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. It is as if you were sitting at the board with a chess coach answering your questions about the plans for both sides, the ideas behind particular moves, and what specific knowledge you need to have.

David Vigorito is an International Master from the United States. He plays regularly in high-level competitions, including the US Championship. He has written extensively for a variety of publications and is a chess teacher.
