    Sick of defending with Black? Never found a reliable way to fight for the initiative when White plays 1 d4?

    Allow Grandmaster Aveskulov to assist. He has put together a sound but ultra-aggressive repertoire based on gambits that have proved their worth in grandmaster play over many years. The Benko Gambit is dreaded by many 1 d4 players. Black gets very active piece-play, and even if White reaches a pawn-up endgame, he is often shocked to find he is worse due to Black's intense positional pressure! If White avoids the Benko, that's when we hit him with the Blumenfeld, sacrificing a pawn to set up a strong pawn-centre and attacking chances.

    Aveskulov examines all of White's options and move-orders after 1 d4 Nf6, and shows an aggressive reply to each of them. He is never willing to take existing theory on faith, and throughout the book presents an extraordinary wealth of new analysis and ideas. He also explains typical plans in depth, so you will always know how to turn the screw once you have your opponent on the run.

    • FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 76 - The Hippo
      M Andrew Martin, author of the book Hippopotamus Rises, brings you an original and provocative opening for Black. He will take you through a series of games teaching you the ideas behind the opening for both Black and White. In this system, Black meets all of White's responses with 1...b6 followed by a timely g6. The Hippopotamus offers everyone a chance to play chess in an original and interesting way. Black plays his pawns up to the third rank (lying low in the water like the hippopotamus himself), perhaps fianchettoes both Bishops and bides his time, waiting for the right moment to strike.

Six games would be played for over $1 million in prize money.
