Chess Openings: Attack the King with the Ponziani
"The Ponziani is one of the oldest and most aggressive openings in Chess. It has been all but forgotten largely because it is no longer used regularly at the highest super Grandmaster levels.
But if you're rated anywhere below 2600, the Ponziani is a very useful weapon against your unsuspecting opponents, especially in blitz as you aggressively attack the king forcing your opponents to use up more time on the clock!
This weapon is effective for many reasons, not least of which is the fact that very few players know what to do against it, which almost always leads to a big attack for white.
In this course, you will learn how to dominate your opponent with this very powerful attacking weapon!
