The Italian Game is a family of chess openings beginning with the moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4. White’s bishop takes aim at the Black’s vulnerable f7-square, which is one of the main weaknesses of Black in the King’s Pawn openings. The opening is also called as Giuoco Piano, particularly after Black plays the symmetrical 3…Bc5.

Generally, the Italian Game is full of tactics and attacking opportunities for White. At the same time, it is a very solid and sound opening. Therefore, even if your opponent is aware of all the traps set by you, at least you will get an equal, playable position. Most importantly, you have a great chance to crush your opponents early in the game, if they are not well prepared.

In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov walks you through the opening, breaking down the theories, so that you will understand the core idea of this aggressive chess opening. He will also share with you a HIDDEN line (not too popular), which will give you a strong attacking position. It is guaranteed that you can surprise your opponents and win a lot of games!
