Winning with the Slow (but Venomous!) Italian

An easy-to-learn chess opening that may look innocent, but is actually full of venom.


One of the best and most popular ways to meet White’s first move 1.e4 remains the tried and tested 1…e5.

After this move many games steer for the Ruy Lopez.


The Ruy is a perfectly fine choice for White, but one that requires you to study the countless different

setups and follow the continuously evolving theory in that opening.


Karsten Müller and Georgios Souleidis present an alternative that is ideal for the average club

player: a complete repertoire for White in the Italian Opening.


This modern version of the age-old ‘Giuoco Piano’, with the innocent looking pawn moves c2-c3 and d2-

d3, is not only popular at club level, but is also regularly adopted by an increasing number of strong

Grandmasters, including the very best, such as Magnus Carlsen and Anish Giri.


The set-up is easy to learn and understand, and theoretical novelties are much less important than the

sound principles it is based on, such as the pawn push d3-d4 or bringing the b1 knight over to the

kingside and into the attack.


The Slow Italian may look innocent, but is actually full of venom, because White has a lot of options to

create aggressive play by making natural looking moves with his pieces.
