Catalogue text:

The search for new ideas in the openings has gone beyond the rare and irregular into the realm of the unorthodox and even bizarre. Somewhere in between lies a widely misunderstood and often mishandled device known as the Trompovsky Attack. And it is misunderstood because it is too young and still evolving.

That it's named after an obscure Brazilian champion is a tribute to Octavio Trompovsky's dogged devotion to 2 Bg5. Of course, it had been played before. When David Janowsky used 1 d4 Nf6 2 Bg5 to win one of his last games (vs. Michel, Semmering 1926) annotator Hans Kmoch noted that he had used this move successfully more than once before. However, Janowsky usually used it to transpose into a Torre attack - as he did against Michel after 2...d5 3 e3.

But Trompowsky played a pure Trompowsky Attack - and beat some pretty fair players with it.
