A Gambit Guide Through the Open Game (Vol. 2)
by Erwin L’Ami
William Davies Evans was a Scottish sea-captain who gave us the Evans Gambit that brought White hundreds and thousands of brilliant victories its wake. In volume 2 of his Gambit Guide, Dutch Grandmaster Erwin l’Ami brings back the romantic days of chess when pawns were routinely sacrificed in huge numbers! In Volume 1 of this series we saw the many dangerous gambits White can play after 1.e4 e5. In Volume 2 we see enterprising gambits such as the Marshall Gambit, the Scotch Gambit, the Jänisch Gambit, and the Evans Gambit mentioned above. Many of these long forgotten lines offer plenty of room for creativity and exploration and this video is full of new ideas with which you can surprise your opponents. Apart from a theoretical section and illustrative model games the video download contains a number of exercises, which allow you to test your new knowledge. L’Ami, winner of the Reykjavik open 2015 and a former second to World Champion Veselin Topalov, is the perfect man to guide you through the maze of dazzling complications!
