My Success with the Trompowski

by GM Julian Hodgson

GM Julian Hodgson's original ideas have come to the forefront as the new main lines of the Trompowski (1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5). He explores the surprise weapons and attacking formations that have garnered him an impressive list of victims. He considers all the major Black responses and after the critical 2...Ne4, concentrates on the fantastic 3.h4 lines he has popularized. Hodgson also covers the Pseudo-Trompowski 1.d4 d5 2.Bg5.
