Crushing Black with the Deadly Ponziani 1
Nakamura & Magnus Carlsen have successfully used The Ponziani. It is a great suprise weapon where white has racked up countless wins in under 20 moves.The Ponziani is an easy to learn Killer Opening for White!!
Grandmasters have recently discovered that the Ponziani is a useful surprise weapon and in 2012 and 2013 the opening has been played frequently at the highest level. Even Magnus Carlsen has used it! Therefore at club level, a good knowledge of the tactics and strategical objectives that White has after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 c3!?, could easily rack up the wins.
There is a lot less to know and learn about the Ponziani than any of the Ruy Lopez, the Italian Game or the Scotch., which are White's three main open-game weapons. Thus the opening has a very practical element to it.
On this all-new Foxy openings DVD, IM and FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin equips you with a repertoire for White, which will help you to win more games. You will see plenty of Grandmaster examples where even very strong opponents flounder in the complications as Black, so imagine how club players will react! Take part in the full-scale revival of the Ponziani!
