Wojo's Weapons: Winning With White, Volume 2 - Jonathon Hilton & Dean Ippolito
Paperback, 340 pages
IM Dean Ippolito and NM Jonathan Hilton team up again to continue their coverage of the late GM Aleksander Wojtkiewicz's winning repertoire with the White pieces, designed to grind down weaker players while challenging his peers.
In this second volume, Ippolito and Hilton examine Wojo's handling of the popular King's Indian Defense, focusing on the positional Fianchetto Variation. Over the course of 78 fully annotated complete games, the authors examine Black's various plans, explain the key ideas, offer original analysis, and show the way for White to minimize counterplay and nurse his natural opening edge through to victory.
Far more than an opening monograph, Wojo's Weapons 2 is a seminar in how to cash in on small advantages, which players of all strengths - even those who don't play queen's pawn openings - will find instructive.
