Simple WINNING Attacking Plan In The Italian Game For Black

Today I’d like to share with you a powerful, winning attacking plan in the Italian Game for Black. It’s a super-simple yet tricky plan, even causing advanced-level opponents, including 2500-rated players, to find themselves in a losing position in just 10 moves!

This winning plan can be executed in the Giuoco Piano or the Giuoco Pianissimo variation of the Italian Game. Here, Black initiates a quick kingside attack by playing h6 followed by g5, aiming to open up the g-file for the Black rook.

Below, you can find the games shown in the video:
