BRCC: Attacking Repertoire
Compiled by foodfight
--*--

This is a repertoire for scholastic and beginning players. It emphasizes lines where the number of forcing moves your opponent must master outnumber the forcing lines you must master.

These are high risk lines that you must study to play succesfully. The advantage: You gain lots of experience in tactical situations with these lines. The drawback: It takes a lot of time to learn these lines well enough to play. Time studying openings takes time away from more important stuff like working on tactics.

Consider the BRCC Strategic Repertorie for lines to reach a safe middle game with less opening preparation.

For White:

Games 1 - 4: Sicilian Grand Prix. This is a good attacking Anti-Sicilian line, but White should use the 3. Bb5 system if Black plays 2. Nc6. You can find more on the GBW way to play the Grand Prix here: Game Collection: BRCC: Against The Sicilian

Games 5 - 8: Scotch Gambit. For more Scotch Gambit ideas check out "A Lazy Player's Guide To The Scotch Gambit" http://web.archive.org/web/20020803... Many of our players like the Italian Game (3. Bc4). You can find another agressive way to play here: Game Collection: BRCC: Mad Italian Openings For White

Games 9 -10: French Nc3 Variations (Winawer and Classical)See Game Collection: French Defense: Winawer. Poisoned Pawn Variation and Game Collection: FRENCH CLASSICAL for more.

For Black: Most of the repertoire is based on responding to 1. e4 with ..e5. If you want another approach, consider the Sicilian Sveshnikov: Game Collection: BRCC: Sicilian Sveshnikov, Paulsen, & Neo-Paulse

Games 11 - 13: Two Knights Defense. I hesitate to recommend this. Make sure you learn this system well if you are going to play it. There is a lot to learn here. Check out this game collection: Game Collection: Two Knights Additional Study Also check out this excellent collection on the Traxler Counter-attack:Game Collection: Wandering Tour through the Traxler Counterattack The Giuoco Piano is a less risky alternative: Game Collection: BRCC: 1. e4 Games For White and Black

Games 14-15: Ruy Lopez, Schliemann Defense This is complex, but fun, approach. You can (and need to) learn more here: Game Collection: repertorio gaston If the Schliemann is not for you consider the Marshall Attack - Game Collection: MARSHALL GAMBIT
