THE HIPPOPOTAMUS DEFENSE is an underrated yet proven system that will help you take your chess game to the next level. Top grandmasters have used it over the years with great success, including twice in World Championship matches. In this course, Solomon Ruddell walks you through the theory, strategy, moves, themes, and ideas of this comprehensive system. This is not a course filled with fluff or carried by entertainment or simple personality — after recently earning the Candidate Master title in a tournament where he used nothing but the Hippo, Solomon is prepared to answer your toughest questions and provide an expansive view of the entire system. We hope you enjoy this course and find it advantageous in your quest to improve as a player.
You'll get a six-hour video series available for immediate streaming and twenty-two PGNs matching the games and positions discussed in the course.
