The Popov Variation against the Taimanov
One of the easy, sharp and semi-rare options is the Popov variation. It starts with 6.Be3 a6 7.Qd2, which seems like white is intending to go for an English Attack set-up, but then after 7…Nf6 8.f4 will follow, the Popov variation.
Adhiban Gambit against 1.c4
After 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 e4 Black is giving up a pawn. By sacrificing the e-pawn, Black gains a lot of time harassing the white knight and seizes the initiative in the centre.

The Kupreichik Sicilian
The Kupreichik starts with 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Bd7. It is a flexible move, as it doesn’t tell white much about the set-up black will choose. Most often black goes for a Dragon or a Classical Sicilian set-up.
El Gambito Escocés
El Gambito Escocés (1.e4 e5 2.Cf3 Cc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Ac4!?) es al mismo tiempo un sistema enérgico y un sistema perfectamente sólido para las blancas, que sacrifican un peón para abrir la posición y atacar al rey negro lo antes posible.

5.Nge2 against the King's Indian Defence
The Hungarian variation provides white an attacking plan against the KID. With 5.Nge2 White will play 6.Ng3, close the centre with d5 after …c5/…e5 and start playing on the kingside for an attack.
