Table of contents


The Ponziani is one of the oldest and most aggressive openings in Chess. It has been all but forgotten largely because it is no longer used regularly at the highest super Grandmaster levels.
But if you’re rated anywhere below 2600, the Ponziani is a very useful weapon against your unsuspecting opponents, especially in blitz as you aggressively attack the king forcing your opponents to use up more time on the clock!
This weapon is effective for many reasons, not least of which is the fact that very few players know what to do against it, which almost always leads to a big attack for white.
In this course, you will learn how to dominate your opponent with this very powerful attacking weapon!

Teacher and Entrepreneur
My courses are designed based on my many years as a teacher and student of education and business. I hold a master’s degree in business education and have been designing curricula, teaching, and doing corporate training for almost 15 years. 
The business, language, and chess courses that I have built on Udemy are a reflection of this experience and dedication to education. My goal is to reach as many people as possible with my courses, which is why I have chosen the internet and the Udemy platform as my ideal mode of delivery. 
The following is a little more about my expertise and background. I was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho. I attended the University of Idaho where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Human Resources in 2004. After a few years in the work force as an account manager I moved to Vietnam where I lived for 9 years. 
After arriving in Vietnam I and a small group of motivated individuals launched and ran a sports training company called Saigon Sports Academy. We coached sports such as soccer, chess, tennis, and basketball as well as ran large sporting events such as tournaments and leagues. After 5 years of building the business, I led the successful sale of the company to a local conglomorate (XLE Vietnam, owner of the Saigon Heat pro basketball franchise).
I have been fluent in the Vietnamese language for many years and enjoy teaching the language to other expats and non-native speakers. In addition, I have spent many years training with chess grandmasters in Vietnam and hope that my courses will help aspiring business people, Vietnamese language speakers, and chess players reach their goals.
