In this video, GM Susan Polgar analyzes a classic game played between Jacques Mieses and David Janowski from their 1895 match in Paris. It's a perfect example of how a few passive opening moves can be quickly punished with energetic play.
After 1.e4 e5, White plays an odd-looking move, 2.Ne2. Incredibly, White has already handed the initiative to Black. Susan explains why this move - which, after all, still controls d4 - is not as good as Nf3. Firstly, White blocks in his light-squared Bishop, which also means it will take longer to castle. Secondly, White misses an opportunity to exert pressure on e5, forcing Black to defend.
From here, Black's moves just flow. Without having to spend time defending against White's threats, Janowski is able to develop with tempo; first his Knight, then his Rook put pressure on the e4 pawn.
There are further mistakes by Mieses as he neglects to castle when he should and he soon gets caught in some nasty pins. Black is even able to move the same piece (his dark-squared Bishop) twice in the opening as it creates a new threat, thus not losing any time. By move 9, White is already faced with the inevitability of losing a piece!
Ahead in material, Black launches an attack and White soon collapses. This video, a free preview from Susan's course on Attack & Defense for beginners, demonstrates why we should prefer certain moves over others in the opening, and how to overload our opponent's with threats until their position collapses.
