Chess Openings: Learn to Play the Dunst Opening / Van Geet Opening!
There are three chess openings for white we have covered on this channel, those being the Vienna Game, Lizard Attack, and Grand Prix Attack. These are responses for white against e5, the Scandinavian Defense, and the Sicilian Defense. What if I told you that there is a way to trick the Sicilian player into playing e5, or the e5 player going into a Scandinavian Defense. With the Vienna Game, Lizard Attack, and Grand Prix Attack, we start off with the moves e4 and Nc3. In today’s video, we will simply cover what happens when we play Nc3 and then e4. By doing this, we have officially utilized the Dunst Opening / Van Geet Opening. I say both the Dunst and Van Geet because this chess opening for white has two different names. Whichever name you use, 1. Nc3 from white is possibly one of the most underrated chess opening systems out there. You can reach openings such as the French Defense, Caro-Kann, Sicilian Defense, e5, Pirc Defense, Alekhine’s Defense, and Scandinavian Defense. The thing is, the large majority of the time, your opponent will be playing one of these chess openings for the first time. The Dunst Opening is a top tier chess opening for white as it can easily transition into any of these major openings while also keeping good chess opening strategy at the forefront of every move. The Dunst Opening (or Van Geet Opening) is a good chess opening for beginner chess players, and a good chess opening for intermediate chess players. Why is this? It fights for the center of the board, and also allows white some flexibility into what chess opening they want to enter into. One example of this is that white could go for the Ritcher-Veresov Attack opposed to the Lizard Attack, if that happens to be your preference. The Dunst Opening is one of my favorite chess openings for white because I personally enjoy chess openings such as the Grand Prix and Vienna Game. The lines and variations that come out of both of these (in addition to the Lizard Attack) are very similar. We look to get in an early f4, and then attack on the kingside. The chess opening strategy, chess opening theory, and chess opening principles of all these variations give white great chances to win. Want to learn how to play chess, win more games, and improve at chess as a whole? By playing the Dunst Opening, you will get an overall chess opening repertoire and be prepared for anything that comes your way. Are you a Grand Prix Attack player who likes the lines, variations, and middlegame positions you get? Do you enjoy the Lizard Attack, looking to take the Scandinavian Defense player out of its normal chess opening theory? Do you go with the Vienna Game, a classical chess opening system for white against e5? Are you simply wanting to trick your opponent into playing a chess opening they would never consider? In any of these cases, we hope you enjoy learning how to play the Dunst Opening / Van Geet Opening!
