The Vienna Game (also known as the Vienna System) is a chess opening that begins with the moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3. The original idea behind the Vienna Game was to play a delayed King’s Gambit with 3.f4, but in modern play White often plays more quietly, for example, by fianchettoing his king’s bishop with g3 and Bg2.
Black most often continues with 2…Nf6. Black’s most continuations are 3…Bc5 and 3…d5. The RCA guest coach IM Asaf Givon analyzes the typical responses of Black in this opening. He suggests that White can play this opening to surprise the opponents, because of the unpopular second move, especially in the games with shorter time controls.
IM Asaf also explains the typical plans for White and how he can launch a quick attack on the kingside. Additionally, he illustrates some interesting traps in this opening.
