Moves : O-O c5 Bg4 (back)
The four pawns attack is a sharp line in which White tries to overrun Black with his center pawns. Such a strategy entails considerable risk, and analysis constantly shifts back and forth as to its validity. The pawn on f4 prevents Black's usual e5 break, but Black can get counterplay with a c5 break instead. The main line four pawns position can also be reached from a Sicilian move order.
According to Chessbase, white chances are about 61% , but correspondence chess statistics give no more than 51%
