[Win the game with rare openings] Trompowski System from the perspective of white pieces
The Trompowsky Attack is a chess
opening that begins with the moves:
1. d4 Nf6
With his second move, White intends
to exchange his bishop for Black’s knight,
inflicting doubled pawns upon Black in the process. This is
not a lethal threat; Black can choose to fall in with White’s plan.
The Trompowsky is a popular alternative to the
more common lines after 1.d4 Nf6 beginning 2.c4 or 2.Nf3. By playing
2.Bg5, White sidesteps immense bodies of opening theory of
various Indian Defences like the Queen’s
Indian, King’s Indian, Nimzo-Indian, as well as
the Grünfeld Defence.
The opening is named after the
one-time Brazilian champion Octávio
Trompowsky (1897–1984) who played it in the 1930s and 1940s.
The Trompowsky has also been called The Zot.
Julian Hodgson and Antoaneta
Stefanova are among several grandmasters who often
employ the Trompowsky. World Champion Magnus Carlsen has
occasionally employed the Trompowsky, notably in the first game of
the 2016 World Chess Championship against Sergey
