    I am pretty sure we already have thread about grob, so just send me a link to the thread. You can reply here if you want.

    I am interested in basic idea of that opening (except to go out of book soon because of lack of theory), ,and common caracteristic developments of the situation and basic white's plans of playing, his targets etc.. Thanks

    "The Killer Grob" by IM Michael Basman is very entertaining and instructive with tons of annotated complete games that he's played in tournaments.

    Basman also analyzes 1 e4 g5, 1 c4 g5 and 1 d4 h6 (followed by ...g5 at some point).

    The Tactical Grob by Bloodgood is far superior.

    The Killer Grob is a good read but too light on serious theory.

    Yeah. It's kinda sad he was a murderer and all.

    That is true! Which explains why most of his games were correspondence.

    It's absolutely brutal. I gave up on it after 2 humiliating defeats.
