Book Description

This is a book for chess players who love to play for checkmate from the very first move. It is for players who seek not merely a victory but the thrill of seeing the enemy king lie down in humiliating defeat. It is for the kind of player who reacts to the checkmate with a sly grin or by throwing his arms in the air and shouting "Who's da man?" (though this is considered very poor behavior and is not likely to earn you return match against the same opponent.) This book advocates an uncompromising opening system where White will be assured of a significant initiative for a considerable length of time, although he must part with a pawn in order to get it. Here you will find no encyclopedic treatment of variations or detailed repertoire notes. Instead, you'll find numerous brilliant sacrifices in the early stages of the game, many by amateur players facing superior opposition! Most of the games are presented all the way up to the checkmate move because this book is also intended as a manual of how to create a checkmate using a variety of opening and middlegame strategies.

This book is intended for amateur players who are trying to improve their attacking skills.

  • 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.
