Gary Lane on the Lolli Attack
In his "Opening Lanes" column at ChessCafe, titled "Back to Basics," Gary Lane discusses what is commonly called the Lolli Attack (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 Nxd5? 6.d4!), which I have analyzed as part of my site on the Perreux Variation of the Two Knights. These are fun lines to know with a lot to teach about attacking the King in the center.
