In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov will share with you one of the most savage and aggressive chess openings for White after the first moves 1.e4 e5.
It is from the Italian Game, the Nakhmanson Gambit to be precise, which happens after the following moves: 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.d4 exd4 5.0-0 Nxe4 6.Nc3. White sacrifices the knight, a shocking move in the opening. The gambit can also arise from other openings like the Bishop’s Opening or the Scotch Game.
This will definitely shock your opponents and will guarantee you a lot of victories. The gambit is so deadly that even the world chess champion Magnus Carlsen got crushed by it in an online game.
Watch till the end as GM Igor Smirnov also shows the best continuation for Black as to how to refute this aggressive opening line.
