      FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 151 - Crushing Black With The Deadly Ponziani
      Grandmasters have recently discovered that the Ponziani is a useful surprise weapon, and in 2012 and 2013 the opening has been played frequently at the highest level. Even Magnus Carlsen has used it! Therefore at club level, a good knowledge of the tactics and strategical objectives that White has after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 c3!?, could easily rack up the wins. There is a lot less to know and learn about the Ponziani than any of the Ruy Lopez, the Italian Game or the Scotch, which are White's three main open-game weapons. Thus the opening has a very practical element to it.

The defense has the considerable merit of sidestepping standard theory, and is a favorite of Anand and Speelman. GM James Plaskett analyses Black's best plans against all possible White set-ups.
