Tremendous Attacks in the Opening!

Tremendous Attacks in the Opening!

May 30, 2014, 1:50 AM 1

In my newest post, I would like to talk about a key question to many chess players: When to attack or not attack in the opening? Below is a lecture from my new ChessLecture.com DVD on attacking chess. Here is some explanation on the valuable topic:

The lecture explains how to attack in the opening without using a gambit. It shows us a Classic encounter from a 1920's game that features a French Defense variation 3...Nf6 4.Bg5 dxe4 5. Nxe4 Be7. Then it outlines the importance of 'playing actively' and 'maintaining active Knights' rather than trading pieces. A quick g4 in the opening can start the immediate attack to 'gain space' on the King-side which can then transform to a more concrete and direct attack in the opening. The lecture shows us that 'punishing the opponent for breaking chess rules' is an important element in deciding when to 'successfully attack in the opening'.Thanks to OnlineChessLessons.NET for the great share!
