The newest addition to Andrew Martin Fritz Trainer Opening software DVD series: The ABC of the Vienna.
Old fashioned? Certainly! Infrequent ? Definitely! Underestimated ? Without doubt! Dangerous? You must draw your own conclusions...... The Vienna Game deserves a place in the repertoire of all players. With 2. Nc3 White prevents the freeing thrust ...d7-d5 and keeps open the option of f2-f4, hoping to transpose to a superior Kings Gambit
For the Grandmaster,the Vienna can be used as a surprise weapon. At club level,everyone will be ready for 2. Nf3, but have they the same level of preparation against 2. Nc3? This is very doubtful. On this new Chessbase DVD International Master Andrew Martin argues that the Vienna is a good practical choice. White can steer the game into all manner
of interesting positions according to Blacks response. He may play sharply or positionally. Black must respond very accurately to demonstrate equality.
