🔹 The Most Underrated Chess Opening –

This is a continuation of the “Most Underrated Chess Openngs” series by GM Igor Smirnov. In this video lesson, you will learn the Grob’s Attack, which starts with the unusual 1.g4.

The opening takes its name from Swiss International Master Henri Grob (1904–1974) who analysed it extensively and played hundreds of correspondence games with it.

A great thing about this opening is that the White’s first move 1.g4 is so rare that most of your opponents will be shocked to see it. Therefore, you get them out of their opening preparation giving you a great chance of winning the game!

Watch the video lesson and learn the typical ideas for White, most common traps that Black fall for, common responses of Black and how to exploit them.
