Blatny Busts Ponziani Scheme
Opening: C44, D03: Ponziani Opening, Torre Attack
Player(s): Kranzl, Blatny, Anand, Mohr
With this episode GM Larry Christiansen concludes his mini-series on attacking weakened castled positions. Larry opens his show with a game from 1988, in which a young and - of course! - promising Vishy Anand finds himself on the receiving end of a furious attack, after the then-to-be World Champion castles a bit too early in the game. Then our tactician moves on to a classic attacking game, where Blatny punishes his opponent's sluggish opening. Another great episode of "Attack with LarryC!"
