Description / GingerGM - Killer Trompowsky
The Killer Trompowsky starts after the moves 1.d5 Nf6 2.Bg5!? White exits mainline theory and aims to double Black’s pawns with Bxf6. This is a perfect opening for players who want to play something fun and aggressive, yet not mainline.
This course was designed by expert theoretician and International Master Richard Palliser, and Grandmaster Simon Williams.
Richard follows in the tradition of other legends of English chess such as Luke McShane, Mickey Adams, and, of course, Julian Hodgson. The Killer Tromp is a repertoire that Richard has personally perfected over the course of his life. This is a repertoire that will take Black out of mainline theory from an early stage. The Trompowsky is also a great way to avoid learning what to play against such openings as the Kings Indian Defence, Benoni, Benko Gambit, Nimzo-Indian, Queens Indian and Grunfeld.
With 2.Bg5, White dictates the way that the game develops and frustrates Black on move 2, winning the early mental warfare battle. The Tromp was also Magnus Carlsen’s opening choice in the first round of the 2016 World Championships, showing it is an opening to be treated very seriously!
