    Wojo's Weapons - VOLUME 3

    Winning with White

    Product Code: B0095EU

    Description

    The Grunfeld is one of the most topical openings in modern chess practice. Many club players fear it, and top GMs often struggle to get an advantage when facing it as White. But is it really a theoretically sound defense? In this third and final volume of the acclaimed Wojo's Weapons series, IM Dean Ippolito and NM Jonathan Hilton claim to have found a sure route to an advantage against this opening.

    Building on the repertoire of the late GM Aleksander Wojtkiewicz, the authors reveal the fruits of a combined 35 years of Grunfeld analysis in the first 200 pages. Hilton, himself a Grunfeld player, admits that Ippolito's pet variation with the surprising 10.Qc2!? sets Black nearly insolvable problems in the open lines. Much more than a Grunfeld monograph, however, Wojo's Weapons III provides in-depth coverage of other pesky openings such as the Dutch, the Old Indian, and the Hedgehog, arming you with the knowledge needed to turn the tables on your opponent and take him out of his comfort zone.

    No matter what openings they play, chessplayers at any skill level can use Ippolito and Hilton's full-game coverage in Wojo's Weapons III as a series of practical lessons in strategic chess. This ambitious repertoire project for White, which started with the 2009 release of the first volume of Wojo's Weapons, is now complete.

      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.
