The Killer Grob

The Killer Grob
by Michael Basman
PDF | 175 Pages | 7.22 MB



this 170 page book has more entertainment value than actual solid positional play.
IM Michael Basman has won a number of Master games with it, so regardless
of Raymond Keene's opinion on this being a horrible opening, The Grob is not without logic.
If you're looking for something different, this is definately it, as 1.g4 or as Black 1.e4 g5 (1.d4 h6, 2.e4 g5)
can be a great 'shock value' opening for the intermediate and club player.
I have won with this opening many times, but i will admit, i can't see it being a major part of my opening repertoire.
It would be nice if Basman wrote a follow-up to this book for more current treaments,
as well as the Gambit line of 1.g4 d5, 2.Bg7 Bxg4 which is not addressed here.
