Solomon Ruddell's Ponziani Opening Course

$69.99
3 ratings

Arguably the most underrated opening for white, the Ponziani is rare, sound, and dangerous — it takes a back seat in popularity compared to other e4 openings, leaving black players unsure of how to respond against it. The Ponziani provides a large number of winning traps for white, but it’s not an opening that leaves the e4 player "hoping" their opponent messes up, while risking a terrible position if their opponent plays correctly.  If the opponent falls into a trap, we get an easy win; if they don’t, we still have great chess positions to work with!

In this course, CM Solomon Ruddell looks to give viewers a holistic view of the Ponziani — starting from the fundamentals and building to more complex concepts over the course of seven lessons. The Ponziani is dominated by good opening principles, sound middlegame strategy, strong attacking chances, and chess fundamentals that have stood the test of time, giving its players an advantage in preparation, comfort, and understanding as opening and middlegame positions are approached.  Focus on what’s shared in this course and you will be well on your way to increasing your wins as white and increasing your ELO rating as a result.  The Ponziani Opening is one of a kind, and Solomon is excited to share it!
