The Vienna Game is an chess opening that begins with the moves: 1. e4 e5 2. Nc3
The original idea behind the Vienna Game was to play a delayed King’s Gambit with f4. In modern play White often plays more quietly, an example by fianchetto the king's bishop with g3 and Bg2. Black most often continues with 2...Nf6. This opening can also lead to the Frankenstein-Dracula Variation.
This DVD covers several variations of the Vienna game including the Mieses and Frankenstein-Dracula Variation. IM Vigorito goes into all of the reasons why you may not want to play the Vienna game given what you will face.
