Description

The late Aleksander Wojtkiewicz was one of the most feared players in the U.S. tournament circuit. Using his dynamic, Catalan-based opening repertoire, the ``Polish Magician`` won hundreds of tournaments before 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 with White after 1.Nf3 d5.

Over the course of 75 fully annotated games, the authors make Wojtkiewicz`s approach easily accessible to the chess public for the first time.

• Club players looking to master an efficient, safe, and practical White repertoire will
   benefit from the authors` full explanations of key ideas
• Titled players will find up-to-date theoretical coverage of all the lines presented,
   including the authors` own novelties and little-known ideas.
• Experts looking to achieve the master title will benefit most from the thorough
   treatment of middlegame and endgame ideas.

Wojo`s Weapons is arranged so that you can quickly get started winning the Wojo way. This book is your tool to building a world-class repertoire and to achieving positional mastery.

International Master Dean Ippolito , a 10-time All-America Team member and winner of 13 national championship tournaments, has more than twenty years experience playing Wojtkiewicz`s systems. The author of two other books, Dean operates a successful chess teaching company in New Jersey.

National Master Jonathan Hilton is an award-winning freelance journalist. His 2006 Chess Life Online series, ``How Wojo Won,`` was praised for its accessibility to club players. Jonathan has relied on the Polish-American star`s repertoire with the White pieces for the better part of a decade. This is his first book for Mongoose Press.
