Winning with the Torre Attack - download book
The Torre Attack. 1 d4 Nf6 2 Nf3 e6 3 Bg5, is one of the most popular varieties of Che Queen's Pawn Opening. It came into being in November 1925, when the young Mexican chess star Carlos Torre unleashed the opening at top level in the important international tournament in Moscow.
The opening moves introduce an harmonious system of development with which While pins the f6 knight and then erects the pawn wedge c3-d4-e3. This virtually impregnable structure, while enabling White to develop his pieces harmoniously around it, has great flexibility, with the result that White's position possesses elastic potential, ready to unleash itself at a suitable moment.
Torre's opponents were accustomed to the classical style of play prevalent at the tune, and so found it difficult to orientate themselves to the new situation, so that Tone was able to reap a rich harvest of three victories in the Moscow event. The first victim was the strong German master Samisch.
