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.
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.
