White moves

chess strategies

Black is underdeveloped as you can see. The knights are badly placed. White has not castled yet, but has more pieces out in the game. White has to act quickly before advantage evapourates.

The idea is to OPEN UP the game and apply the break, because Black is underdeveloped.

1. e4

If 1...Bxe 2.NxB dxe 3.d5 Nf6 4.dxc
If 1...dxe then 2.d5 Nf6 3.d6 with attack
The move d5 is called - a break -. White is sacrificing a pawn to be able to apply the break. The function of a break is to OPEN UP the position for White to get active play towards weak points in Blacks game.
