g-pawn/file demolitions after 1.e4
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Those who want to learn how to pry open the g-file to get at the castled king from other openings should hop down to Joseph Henry Blackburne's games. They called him "The Black Death" for good reason!! The gates could not keep his army out.
