Grob's Attack Edit
|ECO code: A00|
Black responds by threatening capture on g4. This is a sound response to 1. g4, as opposed to the more gimmicky 1...e5. Although white's g4 pawn is at risk, white can also give it up, in return receiving a substantial position improvement. As a result, 2. Bg2 is commonly played, followed up by 2...c6 or 2...Bxg4.
No stats as 1. g4 occurs rarely among serious chess players.
