More about Chess Informant

Chess Informant

Chess Informant (Šahovski Informator) is a publishing company based in Belgrade, that periodically produces the book of the same name, as well as the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings, Encyclopedia of Chess Endings, Opening Monographs, other print publications, and software (including electronic editions of most print publications).

Grandmaster Aleksandar Matanović and his associates founded the company in 1966, for the purpose of offering the rest of the world the sort of access to chess information enjoyed by Soviet players. The company has sold three million books in 150 countries.

Former world champion Garry Kasparov asserted “We are all Children of the Informant,”and explained that his own development as a chess player corresponded with the ascendance of Chess Informant’s popularity. Other world champions, including Anatoly Karpov, Vladimir Kramnik and Vishwanathan Anand, attest that Informant is central to their tournament preparation.
