Hello. What's great about the Padhi-He attack is that it can be played against every opening. In this post, I will show you some good openings with the Padhi-He attack.

Here is a recent game of mine where I defeated my FM opponent in around 20 moves with this attack.



But what if white plays 3. Nc3 instead of 3. Nf3? I also had a game in the same tournament where my opponent played 3. Nc3. I lost on time in the end, but I had a great position in the opening.


As you can see, Na6 against 1.d4 will confuse your opponents, and you will get a very comfortable position out of the opening. My next post features the very tricky Padhe Gambit!
