Win with the Two Knights Defense as Black

Today I’m sharing with you a tricky chess opening variation for Black against 1.e4. It happens in the Two Knights Defense after the following moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6.

One of the main variations for White is 4.Ng5, targeting the f7-pawn, which leads to the Fried Liver Attack. You will learn how to counter it by playing 5…b5, which is known as the Ulvestad Variation.

This variation is so tricky that Black gets a lot of active pieces and a strong attack against the White’s king. The most commonly played moves by White lose the game.
