1.e4 e5 for Black - Repertoire against the Italian Game

1.e4 e5 for Black - Repertoire against the Italian Game

This camp marks the beginning of a new fascinating project by GM Ioannis Papaioannou - 1.e4 e5 for Black. Many players, from all levels, struggle to find reliable and yet less theoretical antidote to 1.e4. After many years of practice and work, GM Papaioannou managed to craft an extremely practical 1...e5 repertoire. 

In the first camp (there will be 3 in total), Papaioannou will share his repertoire against the extremely topical Italian Game. Besides showing reliable theoretical analysis, the Greek grandmaster will provide in-depth coverage of the most important pawn structures, positional and tactical ideas.

After 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4, Papaioannou will recommend 3...Nf6

Against the main move 4.d3, Papaioannou will suggest 4...Bc5 as the main line. As an alternative option, he will cover ...h7-h6 followed by ...g7-g6.
