Attack with LarryC: Stocking Up on Nxg5

Opening: A34, C95, C78: English, Ruy Lopez

Player(s): Meyer, Angermeyer, Navara, Socko, Sitovsky, Nabaty

To take, or not to take: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to sacrifice a piece The bishop and knight of outrageous fortune, Or to eat that pawn against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them? -- The Ruy Lopez and the Giuoco Piano, when Black plays early h6 and g5, are the two main openings which can easily lead to the stock sacrifice on g5. This important and interesting tactical sacrifice is part of any chess player's knowledge, but it requires careful consideration. How are your pieces placed when you decide to go for the sac? Is there a strong continuation which will make your attack grow, gain power, and eventually give you the whole point? In this episode of his great show, GM Larry Christiansen continues to guide us through some great examples of how to use this formidable weapon.
