Wojo's Weapons: Winning With White Volume 3 - Dean Ippolito and Jonathan Hilton
Paperback, 400 pages
This book completes the repertoire from the first two volumes of Wojo's Weapons and covers the Fianchetto Grunfeld for the White side. The late Aleksander Wojtkiewicz, known as 'Wojo' to his fans and followers, was one of the most feared players of the White pieces in the U.S. tournament circuit. Using his dynamic, Catalan-based opening repertoire, the 'Polish Magician' won hundreds of tournaments from the 1990's until his untimely death in 2006. Now, Wojtkiewicz experts IM Dean Ippolito and NM Jonathan Hilton have joined forces to produce the definitive 'how-to' manual for learning Wojo's repertoire.
