    Book DescriptionThe Ponziani Opening enjoys a long history, but for some unknown reason it has been neglected in recent times. Don't be fooled by its apparently harmless reputation: the Ponziani is full of tricks and catches many unsuspecting opponents by surprise. It's also a perfect weapon for those who don't fancy learning the masses of theory associated with more high-profile openings like the Ruy Lopez.

    In Play the Ponziani, Dave Taylor and Keith Hayward present a comprehensive guide to this intriguing opening. They provide coverage of all the main lines, identify the best lines for both White and Black, and highlight the key tactical and positional ideas. This book provides everything you need to know to play the Ponziani in your own games.

    * Ideal for improvers, club players and tournament players
    * Bonus coverage of what to do if Black avoids the Ponziani
    * Packed with original ideas and analysis

      The Ponziani (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.c3)has been an opening that has been overlooked frequently through the years. However it was played quite frequently throughout the 80's in Master-level and above tournament play. White has many ways to challenge each variant of Black's setup. Harding shows that Black's game is not as easy as many Black theorists would want you to believe.
