The Trompowsky Attack is well known as an ambitious and aggressive opening. Initially an offbeat line favored by club players in recent history it has undergone somewhat of a transformation. Thanks to the efforts and innovations of Grandmasters such as Mickey Adams and Julian Hodgson it has been fine-tuned into a powerful attacking weapon and today it is seen as an important mainline opening in its own right. The Trompowsky leads to diverse positions sharp or positional and it also allows both sides to play creatively from the very early stages of the game. In this book Richard Palliser studies the Trompowsky by going back to basics introducing the key moves and ideas and taking care to explain the reasoning behind them - something that has often been neglected or taken for granted.
