Editorial Bord

Assembling the Chess Openings 24/7 Editorial Board was an especially challenging task: all these grandmasters had to be expert in opening theory, yet also with advanced computer skills, to meet the necessary technical requirements. Their mental stamina had to be off the charts to overcome fatigue and often frustratingly complex working procedure. Chess professionals are known to have very busy schedules, so everything had to be meticulously planned, well in advance. To build a cohesive unit wherein everyone is considered almost a family member, we needed to rely on fundamentally good people with great moral qualities. Bojan Vučković, Aleksandar Kovačević, and Dragan Šolak were the first to recognize the potential of the idea behind the project, and ready to support it without financial requirement. Boris Avrukh was the next to join the team, and from there, it went easier. The following people are members of the Chess Openings 24/7 Editorial Board:
