Hello chess friends! As a continuation to my latest post, today I would like to share with you some nice videos from a few of my ChessBase training DVDs on how to play attacking openings with white. The key of playing aggressive in the beginning lies within two principles: 1) Develop actively and 2) Gain time. While the first principle works well in the opened games, the second one usually applies through a sacrifice or a way to develop faster, so that our preparation is faster and we can fight for advantage still from the very beginning of the game! I hope you will enjoy my suggestions:

1) Smash your opponent with Gambits!

If you want to follow the analysis attentively you should maximize the broadcast window: Click on the YouTube icon or "Full screen" on the bottom right. 

2) Surprisingly good weapon against the Sicilian.

3) Attack with 1.d4! Queen’s Gambit Attacks.

If you are interested in any of these openings, you can check my DVDs below:
