Foxy DVD Series – Vol 159
1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nc6 f4
The vast majority of chessplayers play for fun; for them, chess is enjoyment and not a professional endeavor. If you are running aground against 1 e4 e5, then why not try the sharp Vienna Gambits suggested by IM Andrew Martin on this DVD? The pressure is brought to bear on Black in unusual ways at an early stage and there is nothing more enjoyable than getting on to the attack early with White and watching the opponent struggle.
The Vienna is like playing a surprise King’s Gambit where Black will be caught off guard on how to respond. This opening is easy to learn and contains plenty of quick crushing attacks that can end the game right out of the opening.
Reviving old and forgotten ideas in the modern era can be a very effective way of discovering winning weapons.
