Most readers are already familiar with CHOPIN, and what it stands for: CHess OPenings INternet service.

We have already completed 70% of the entire opening theory, and the depth and the quality of the regularly updated content stand high above all other commercially available opening encyclopedias. Our GM team has been using our 15-million reference game database to produce daily additions to our service: new opening lines are regularly posted on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Tuesdays and Thursdays are the days for publishing revised and updated opening lines and articles, and our new opening articles appear on Saturdays and Sundays. In a nutshell, here’s what you can expect from us:

• Extensive analyses that you can trust;
• Fresh ideas and recommendations at every turn;
• Plenty of choices for all strength levels, ranging from beginners to international level competition;
• Clever choice of forgotten (dusted off) opening lines with completely new flavor.
• Playing openings on equal footing with the best even if you’re an up-and-coming or amateur player.
