Trompowsky Attack: Are you a 1.d4 player?
Tired of Black knowing all the White’s plans and shifting gears into Slav, Nimzo, King’s Indian… resulting in slow, impossible-to-win positions?
GM Marian Petrov understands the pain.
And he offers a much more practical and better scoring alternative to the typical White’s 1.d4!
GM Petrov recommends the Trompowsky Attack.
And there are 3 great reasons to play it…
- Under 2300 players (98% of your opponents) have very little understanding of how to counter the Trompowsky with Black.
- Trompowsky is light on theory and avoids MANY heavily theoretical variations (including your opponent’s favorite pet lines).
- You can decide whether to go for aggressive or positional chess.
Last but not least, the Trompowsky Attack is a sound opening, played by some of the greatest chess minds including Magnus Carlsen, Hikaru Nakamura, and Levon Aronian.
If you are looking for a ‘new opening’ to score impressive wins with White after 1.d4… and don’t want to face tons of theory that Black prepared… Trompowsky is a practical weapon for you!
