    The Hippopotamus Defence
    A Deceptively Dangerous Universal Chess Opening System for Black
    Catalog Code: B0216NIC

    The Hippopotamus Defence is just what a club player needs. It’s a straightforward and clear-cut chess opening that avoids the ever growing body of mainline theory. It’s universal: Black can use the Hippo against virtually all of White’s choices (1.e4, 1.d4, 1.c4, 1.f4, the Colle, London, Trompowsky, Réti and others). It’s not very well known and will surprise many opponents.

Players sometimes blindly follow rules, restricting themselves to what they have learned without even considering successfully "breaking" the rules. Such stereotypical thinking is a trap which chess players should try to avoid, and in this book, Evgeny makes a strong case for creative thinking and ways to leave the well-trodden paths and confuse the opponent with a fresh approach. Grandmaster Bareev may surprise you with this groundbreaking subject, we promise you it will be a pleasant surprise!
