Two Knight's Defense
On this Fritz Trainer DVD, IM Lawrence Trent presents a comprehensive repertoire based on the Two Knight's Defense. His thematic analysis centers on an enterprising but little-documented variation of the Two Knight's, namely 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5. Although treated with disdain by players of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, present day players (including five World Champions) have successfully tackled this line.
This bold sideline of the Giuoco Piano allows White to sidestep well-known theory and steer the game into waters of his own choosing by ignoring his own development and striking at Black's weak point: f7. Let IM Trent introduce you to this attacking opening, where you can join top players such as Nigel Short and Hikaru Nakamura as a devotee of this unusual Two Knight's variation.
Lawrence Trent is an International Master from England. He has represented England as a player and as a coach and has been a 3-time winner of the Porto San Giorgio International tournament, finishing ahead of many Grandmasters. This is his first published work.
