    Book Description

    One of the most dynamic and attacking of all chess openings, the search for new ideas in the Trompowsky has gone beyond the rare and bizarre into the realm of the unorthodox and even bizarre. Somewhere in between lies a widely misunderstood and often mishandled device known as the Trompowsky Attack. Still a relatively young and evolving opening, this really took off in the 1980's and early 90's. This dynamic, attacking system has become a staple in the repertoires of many GM's. Of particular note, England's Julian Hodgson is often credited as the leading innovator of new, fresh Trompowsky ideas. Also leading GM's such as Joel Benjamin, Mikhail Gurevich, and Rafael Vaganian have frequently used it with success through the years. If you like dynamic and attacking chess, Soltis shows why this might be just the system for you!
