Veresov Attack

The Veresov Attack is a type of line in the Nc3 Attack and Bg5 Attack themes in the Queen Pawn Games. It is very similar to the Torre Attack and the Trompowski.

The Veresov Attack may arise by transposition from an Indian Opening (i.e. 1.d4 Nf6). If White plays the Nc3 Attack with 2.Nc3, then Black will often reply 2.d5, whereupon 3.Bg5 will arrive at the Veresov. White would also play the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit or other lines in the Nc3 Attack.
