The Killer Trompowsky starts after the moves 1 d5 Nf6 2 Bg5!? White exits main
line theory and aims to double Black’s pawns with Bxf6. This is a perfect opening
for players who want to play something fun, aggressive yet not main line.
This course was designed by expert theoretician and International Master,
Richard Palliser and Grandmaster Simon Williams.


Richard follows in the tradition of other legends of English chess such as Luke
McShane, Mickey Adams and of course Julian Hodgson. The Killer Tromp is a repertoire that Richard has personally perfected over the course of his life. A repertoire that will take Black out of main line theory from an early stage. The Trompowsky is also a great way to avoid learning what to play
against such openings as the Kings Indian Defence, Benoni, Benko Gambit, Nimzo-Indian, Queens Indian and Grunfeld.


With 2 Bg5 White dictates the way that the game develops and frustrates Black
on move 2, winning the early mental warfare battle. The Tromp was also Magnus
Carlsen’s opening choice in the first round of the 2016 World Championships,
showing it is an opening to be treated very seriously!


The Killer Trompowsky is broken down into 33 videos to learn from:
