Product Details

In recent years the Italian Game has undergone a renaissance, transforming it from the Cinderella of 1.e4 openings into a major system which offers excellent chances for White to gain the advantage. Accordingly it has found favor with some of the World`s top players including Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik, Sergei Tiviakov, Viktor Bologan, Sergei Movsesian, Michael Adams and Boris Gelfand.

Unlike the Ruy Lopez, which features many sharp theoretical variations, the emphasis in the Italian Game is on knowing where the pieces belong and understanding key plans and ideas. This makes it highly suitable for players who do not have the time to engage in ongoing maintenance of their opening systems.

On this DVD Davies examines the modern treatment of the Italian with 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 followed by 4.d3 and then usually c3. He also places the onus on attacking lines for White, often featuring him castling queen-side and then charging up the king-side. Not only do such variations score heavily in club chess, they are also a lot of fun to play!
