Andrew Martin

In this video Andrew Martin, author of the book Hippopotamus Rises, brings you an original and provocative opening for Black. Black meets all of White's responses with 1...b6 followed by a timely ..g6.

The Hippopotamus offers everyone the chance to play chess in an original and interesting way. Black plays his pawns up to the third rank (lying low in the water like the hippopotamus himself), perhaps fianchettos both Bishops and bides his time, waiting for the right moment to strike.

The best thing about the Hippopotamus is that, for once, there is no fixed theory: you can tailor the opening to suit yourself!

Running time 82 minutes. Published 2007.
