The Center Counter can be aggressive and dangerous. It immediately challenges White from the get-go (1. e4 d5!) and it is making a comeback! Because of Andrew Martin's 2… Qxd5, the Center Counter also doesn't require a mountain of memorization nor knowledge to learn it and use it.

Andrew Martin, The Hippopotamus Rises: The Re-Emergence of a Chess Opening
ISBN: 0713489898 | edition 2006 | PDF | 140 pages | 14 mb

The hippopotamus, as every big game hunter knows, is a deceptively dangerous beast. And so, in the chess world, is the Hippopotamus Defense. To opponents unfamiliar with it, it looks awkward and unaggressive—until it crushes the life out of their favorite openings. Andrew Martin analyzes the basic moves and key variations of the Hippopotamus, showing with illustrative games how it confuses the average player yet is inherently sound enough for Grandmaster competition. In these days of huge databases and long forcing lines, the Hippopotamus stands out, offering everyone the chance to play chess in an original and interesting way.

My guess is that a lot of 1 d4 players don´'t really know what to do against the Dutch. The move 1 … f5 has cropped up relatively infrequently (until now) and only the most well prepared professionals are ready to fight properly against it. I also, through bitter experience, don't think its particularly easy to play the g3 systems for white. Black may well be weakening his kingside but in return he has established a grip on e4 and it's not at all clear how to shake it off.

In the heroic days of rail travel, you could dine on kippers and champagne aboard the Brighton Belle, smoke a postprandial cigar as the Golden Arrow approached Paris or be shaved by the Flying Scotsman's onboard barber. Everyone from schoolboys to socialites knew of these glamorous trains.

There are many apocryphal stories in the classical-music world, but the one in which Frederick the Great challenged Bach to improvise a six-part fugue on a theme of the king's own invention is true, and The Musical Offering was, after a period of further reflection, the result. As with all the works of Bach's later years, the work is both great art and a "teaching piece," which shows everything that he thought could be done with the king's theme. The Trio Sonata based on the theme is the only major piece of chamber music from Bach's last decades in Leipzig, and that makes the work and essential cornerstone of any Bach collection. This performance, led by Neville Marriner, is both polished and lively, and very well recorded. At a "twofer" price, coupled with The Art of Fugue, it's the preferred version of the work on modern instruments.

Julia Fischer and Martin Helmchen adopt a rather quick tempo and a light touch, hardly too heavily pedaled in the piano part, in the opening of the first movement of Schubert's First Sonata in D Major, a work that could lend itself, slight as it may be, to overblown Romantic rhetoric (although not in leaner and more spirited readings like that of Joseph Szigeti, who recorded the Sonata with Andor F”ldes in 1942, a performance re-released in Sony's "Masterworks Portrait" series 52538 in 1992).
