Italian game


I love the Italian game because white can do the fried liver attack and more . Am I right now.


As you progress, I imagine that, with increasing frequency, you will be seeing 1...c5 or 1...e5 2 Nf3 Nf6 or 1...e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bc4 Bc5 or 1...e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bc4 Nf6 4 Ng5 d5 5 exd5 Na5.



It's a good opening and also suitable for beginner/intermediate players to learn. It's a general name that includes both the Giuoco Piano and Two Knights Defenses. However, you can't play the Fried Liver Attack unless Black plays the Two Knights Defense and also plays a later ... Nxd5 that lets you make the Knight sacrifice. There are many ways Black can avoid that move and deny you the possibility of playing the Fried Liver Attack.
