On this DVD, IM Lawrence Trent presents a comprehensive repertoire and thematic analysis of the most enterprising, yet well less documented move 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 in the Two Knight’s Defence. Once labelled a “foolish” and “primative” lunge by the old masters, White ignores his development in order to immediately attack the Achilles Heel of Black’s position on f7.

However, with no less than five World Champions and modern-day Super GMs such as Nigel Short and Hikaru Nakamura essaying this romantic option, 4.Ng5 not only dodges the well-trodden theoretical paths of the Ruy Lopez, but provides an exciting and perfectly sound alternative for the first player. 4.Ng5 is, therefore, certainly no move to be ridiculed!
