Chess Explained: the Main-Line Slav

Chess Explained books provide an understanding of an opening and the middle-games 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.

The Main-Line Slav is one of the key battlegrounds of modern chess, with adherents among all levels of chess-players. It is notoriously difficult for White to prove any advantage against Black's solid set-up, while the lack of symmetry in the position provides scope for creative players to obtain winning chances with either color.

This book discusses all major lines following the moves
1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6 3 Nf3 Nf6 4 Nc3 dxc4.

There are many strategic directions the play can take: sometimes the center is blasted open and piece-play dominates, while in other cases the center becomes fixed, or remains dynamic well into the middle-game. Vigorito dissects the most important themes and nuances, placing them firmly in the context of the practical struggle, making sure that readers will be familiar with the resources at their disposal, and understand when to employ them.
