Product Code: B0067EU

Book Description

IM Dean Ippolito and NM Jonathan Hilton team up again to continue their coverage of the late GM Aleksander Wojtkiewicz's winning repertoire with the White pieces, designed to grind down weaker players while challenging his peers.

In this second volume, Ippolito and Hilton examine Wojo's handling of the popular King's Indian Defense, focusing on the positional Fianchetto Variation.

Over the course of 78 fully annotated complete games, the authors examine Black's various plans, explain the key ideas, offer original analysis, and show the way for White to minimize counterplay and nurse his natural opening edge through to victory.

Wojtkiewics scored a stunning 80.2% winning percentage with his Fianchetto King's Indian and in this book Ippolito and Hilton make this score accessible to amateur players.

Far more than an opening monograph, Wojo's Weapons 2 is a seminar in how to cash in on small advantages, which players of all strengths - even those who don't play queen's pawn openings - will find instructive.

    This book, itself a work of art, is brought together by the use of five criteria: the overall aesthetics (clever and relentless are insufficient qualities); the originality (e.g., not yet another white knight sacrifice in a Sicilian); the level of opposition (the loser played very well); the soundness (i.e., are the moves refutable with perfect play?), accuracy (few of the moves are second-best), and difficulty (the winner overcame major obstacles) of the game; and finally the overall breadth and depth (one wants a series of sparkling ideas, with no dry patches).

  • Soviet Chess
    This seems to be regarded as the West's answer to "The Soviet School of Chess" by Alexander Kotov ISBN 4871878198 who asserts superiority in the Soviet playing style. However, those who say that are mistaken. This book by a New Zealander who emigrated to England because of the greater opportunities to play chess there, fully concurs with Kotov that the Soviet players were the best in the world.
