The Queen’s Bishop Attack, also known as the Pseudo-Trompowsky, is used by bold, enterprising players who want to cut across their opponent’s intention to play a Slav or Queen’s Gambit. It has long been a favourite of top-rated UK chess players, including Julian Hodgson, Michael Adams and the late Tony Miles, and this is the first ever book to cover it. Grandmaster James Plaskett has successful practical experience on both sides of the Queen’s Bishop Attack, and so is the perfect guide to this sound, challenging and yet reassuringly off-beat opening.


This book is the latest in the innovative ‘Revealed’ series, in which the key ideas of chess openings are explained in an entertaining and accessible way, using fresh, clear presentation – ideal for improving players.
