Powerful Chess Opening for White | Center Game

Today I’m excited to share with you one of the most unknown, underrated, and powerful chess openings for White: the Center Game, which arises after the opening moves 1.e4 e5 2.d4.

You will learn the key ideas of the opening, an aggressive variation for White in the mainline, and some nasty checkmating traps!
