    Book DescriptionThe late Aleksander Wojtkiewicz, known as "Wojo" to his fans and followers, was one of the most feared players of the White pieces in the U.S. tournament circuit. Using his dynamic, Catalan-based opening repertoire, the "Polish Magician" won hundreds of tournaments from the 1990's until his untimely death in 2006. Now, Wojtkiewicz experts IM Dean Ippolito and NM Jonathan Hilton have joined forces to produce the definitive "how-to" manual for learning Wojo's repertoire with White after 1.Nf3 d5. Over the course of 75 fully annotated games - 40 of which were played by Wojo himself - the authors make Wojtkiewicz's strategies easily accessible to the chess public for the first time.

    Wojo's Weapons has plenty to offer chessplayers of all strengths:

    * Club players looking to master an efficient, safe, and practical White repertoire will benefit from this highly readable book. The authors give full verbal explanations of each key idea, and brief recaps are provided at the end of annotated games.

    * Titled players will find full, up-to-date theoretical coverage of all the lines presented. The book is packed with the authors' own novelties and little-known ideas, and analysis of the Catalan given by GM Boris Avrukh in 1.d4 is updated and improved.

    * Finally, experts looking to achieve the master title will benefit most from the thorough explanations of middlegame and endgame ideas provided in the annotated games themselves.

    If you are looking to attain the level of positional maturity needed to become a titled player, this book is for you.

    Wojo's Weapons is arranged so that ideas learned in the first chapters can be applied to your own tournament practice right away - so if you think you're ready to start winning the Wojo way, there is no longer anything stopping you. This book is your tool to building a world-class repertoire and to achieving positional mastery.
