    EBOOK - Starting Out - The Trompowsky
    Catalog Code: E-B0296EM

    The Trompowsky Attack is well known as an ambitious and aggressive opening. Initially an offbeat line favoured by club players, in recent history it has undergone somewhat of a transformation. Thanks to the efforts and innovations of Grandmasters such as Mickey Adams and Julian Hodgson, it has been fine-tuned into a powerful attacking weapon, and today it is seen as an important mainline opening in its own right.

Here he rescues two lesser known US tournaments with the help of the energetic Robert Sherwood who provides detailed analyses to all the games. The Chicago International of 1926 saw Frank Marshall top the field ahead of Maroczy and Torre, with other famous names such as Edward Lasker and Isaac Kashdan in the chasing pack. Lake Hopatcong 1926 was a stronger double-round event with Capablanca winning ahead of Kupchik, Maroczy, Marshall and Ed.Lasker.
