Gambiteer II: A Repertoire for Black
Davis asks: Are you fearless in your approach to chess openings? Do you like to attack your opponents from the very beginning? Are you happy to take calculated risks? Do you loathe trivial positional chess? Do you feel the need to sacrifice pawns early in the game? Are you a Gambiteer? If the answer to these questions is 'yes!' then this is the book for you!
In his two-volume Gambiteer series, opening expert Nigel Davies produces a complete opening repertoire which is certainly not for the faint-hearted: uncompromising and wild attacking ideas for both colors. This second volume deals with a gambit-style approach for Black; the first volume will concentrate on an ambitious White repertoire. All of the opening lines Davies advocates in this book lead to positions of open warfare, where sharp, tactical play completely dominates dreary positional subtleties. Are you ready for the battle? Then cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!
Davies recommends the Schliemann Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 f5) against the Ruy Lopez, and the Albin Counter-Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5) against 1.d4 - but also covers other fighting ideas, such as 1.Nf3 Nc6 2.d4 d5 3.c4 e5 and 1.Nf3 Nc6 2.e4 e5 and more!
