The Hippopotamus Defence is just what a club player needs. It’s a straightforward chess opening that avoids the ever growing body of mainline theory. Black can use the Hippo against virtually all of White choices.

It’s not yet very well-known and will surprise many opponents. On top of all that, the Hippo is seriously underestimated: it may look quiet, but is in fact a very dangerous animal.

FIDE Master Alessio de Santis is one of the world’s greatest experts and has written a practical, well-structured and accessible manual. If you like to confront your opponents with some unexpected counter-attacks, you need not look any further.
