GM Petrov’s 10 Sharp Lines to become a Blitz Wizard - Vd1: Danish Gambit and Center game

Opening: C21, C22: Danish Gambit, Center Game


In this video, GM Marian shows you a very tricky opening for white.
Afer e4-e5 2. d4 exd4, you have two options: The Danish or northern gambit with c3 Bc4 or the center game with Qd4.
In the first case, we will see what to do if black takes one or two pawns. If black knows the best line, he can get an equal game, but facing a sharp line in the blitz game is very unpleasant if you are not prepared because you have to think.
If black decides to keep the pawns, white has a very dangerous attack.
In the center game after Qe3 Nf6, you can try the move e5, and now black has to be prepared to decide what to do with the knight: Nd5 allows after Qe4 white to take the initiative; in the case of Ng4, black should be ready to give the knight and to look for compensation.
