How d'ya spEll Hipoptamus? Is that 1 'p' or 2?
Compiled by fredthebear

Webster says H-i-p-p-o-p-o-t-a-m-u-s. That's 3 p's. Have you seen the protruding teeth on those beasts?

Thank you Shams and saintdc07.

First, a sampling of fianchetto openings w/various ECO codes somewhat similar to the Hippopotamus. A true Hippo places four pawns on the 6th rank and fianchettos BOTH bishops (if there's time to do so). The Black knights often begin by landing in front of royalty. The Hippo is often associated with the Modern/Robatsch Defense (B06) which fianchettos the kingside bishop w/a prompt g6, Bg7. The development of the king's knight is often delayed, which can be a dangerous. White is given a free hand in the center.

The Indian Defenses with ECO code "E" are not closely related because the Indians often play Nf6 on the first or second move and perhaps Bb4 -- definitely not a characteristic of the Hippo. However, both defenses usually play d6 or e6 and perhaps b6 as well with a fianchettoed bishop.

We'll begin with the "E" code Indian defenses just for some flavor. If nothing else, it's a refresher on attacking chess. The eventual winner of a chess game must attack/counter attack at some point. Do not play the Hippopotamus w/the idea of hiding behind pawns all game! "Open lines are decisive!" -- Fred Reinfeld.
