The Torre Attack is a line in the Indian Openings where White avoids 2.c4 but rather plays 2.Nf3 and 3.Bg5. It is an anti-Indian line for White, since it avoids the main lines of the Queens Indian, Nimzo-Indian, or Bogo-Indian. Also avoided are the Benoni, Benko Gambit, and Blumenfeld Gambit.

The Torre Attack is similar to a lot of the Bg5 Attack openings, such as the Trompowski. However, Black hasnt play d5, so it is not closely related to the Nc3 Attack or the Veresov Attack, although it may transpose into either if Black plays d5 later.
