The Sniper Opening is a perfect example of Hypermodern opening theory – very early in the game, black invites white to establish a big center so that black may rapidly strike at this center from the sides and prove it to over-extended and weak. The Sniper Opening is a very effective tool for chess players of all levels as it can be employed against almost every opening move (excluding only rare moves like 1. b3 and 1. b4).
