    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!

    • FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 151 - Crushing Black With The Deadly Ponziani
      Grandmasters have recently discovered that the Ponziani is a useful surprise weapon, and in 2012 and 2013 the opening has been played frequently at the highest level. Even Magnus Carlsen has used it! Therefore at club level, a good knowledge of the tactics and strategical objectives that White has after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 c3!?, could easily rack up the wins. There is a lot less to know and learn about the Ponziani than any of the Ruy Lopez, the Italian Game or the Scotch, which are White's three main open-game weapons. Thus the opening has a very practical element to it.

    • SHOPWORN - Fighting the Anti-Sicilians
      Combating 2. c3, the Closed, the Morra Gambit and Other Tricky Ideas
      The Sicilian Defence is by far Black's most popular answer to 1. e4 at all levels of chess. The reason for this is easy to understand: from the very first move Black unbalances the position and can play for a win without needing to take unjustified risks. This is particularly the case with the Open Sicilian, where Black can take comfort from the knowledge that his superior pawn structure ensures control of the centre and excellent long-term chances.

      The Closed Sicilian is an ideal weapon for players who wish for an aggressive way to attack the Sicilian but have neither the time nor the inclination to learn the seemingly endless mountains of opening theory associated with Open Sicilians. In the Closed Sicilian an awareness of the typical themes is far more important than memorising variations.
