Torre Attack, with 1.d4 followed by 2.Nf3 and 3.Bg5, is a solid and easy to learn opening system with hidden dynamic potential. An understanding of the plans and ideas is more important than a precise knowledge of variations which means that it can be played for a lifetime without the need to worry about shock moves or surprises. These are amongst the reasons that several great players have been attracted by the Torre, including those with such diverse styles as Tigran Petrosian and David Bronstein.
Nigel Davies has been a Grandmaster since 1993 and is a former British Open Quickplay and U21 Champion. He has played the Torre Attack in a number of his own games.
