Grandmaster and „Blindfold King“ Timur Gareyev is known for his creative attacking chess. On his new DVD he recommends to play the Trompowsky (1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5): „Tap into your creative mind and start the game on a fresh note. The Trompowsky is an opening outside of conventional wisdom. Create challenges and make your opponent solve problems early on. This DVD expresses my passion for active play where time prevails over matter and where you have to be prepared to play gambits. We start with sacrificial style opening play, then we continue with more solid, positional structures. In the end I introduce you to creative ideas that will complement your explosive opening choice!“

The move 2.Bg5 was named after the Brazilian player Octavio Trompowsky (1897–1984), who employed it in the 1930s and the 1940s. The move led only a shadowy existence right up to the 1980s, but then some free-thinking English grandmasters, above all Julian Hodgson, took it up and demonstrated the vitality of this system, which has since that point become firmly established.=> More products: Trompowsky Attack
