The Complete Hedgehog: Volume 2
Author: Sergey Shipov$17.99Publisher: Mongoose Press | Release Date: March 2015 | Contents: 584 pages
The Hedgehog lives! GM Sergey Shipov concludes his monumental investigation of this counterattacking system for Black with in-depth coverage of formations arising from 1.e4 and 1.d4. Sparing no effort to discover best play for both sides, he presents White’s most promising plans and breathes new life into variations that – according to theory – had turned the Hedgehog into an endangered species. Like its companion volume focusing on the English Opening, this is no dry reference manual, but a labor of love and a lively exposition of the opening’s strategic basis and typical tactical ideas. Along the way, the reader is treated to the author’s wide-ranging observations on such topics as the usefulness of computers in opening analysis; the dangers of narrow thinking; and the value of optimism to a chessplayer’s rating. The Hedgehog is an unconventional opening requiring unconventional treatment by both Black and White. Sit down with one of its foremost experts and learn how elite players including Fischer, Karpov, and Judit Polgar honed it into a formidable weapon.**Prices may vary by country or platform.
