The King's Gambit, Vol. 2 - Chess Opening Trainer on DVD
King's Gambit, Vol. 2This DVD mainly deals with two things:
1) Some of the most interesting lines in the King's Gambit starting with 3.Nf3, especially concentrating on the "refutation of the King's Gambit" (Fisher) with 3...g5. I have given the reader a full repertoire, that they can play with 3.Nf3, so all lines are covered. We also briefly look at the crazy 3.Be2 or 3.d4 or 3.Nc3.
2) The King's Gambit Declined - What happens if Black does not play 2...exf4?
The DVD covers:
1: The Caveman hack attack! 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 g5! 4.d4 g4! 5.Bxf4!?. An interesting and crazy way to sacrifice a piece against Black's main response.
2: The more restrained approach: 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 g5! 4.d4 Bg7 5.Nc3 d6 6.g3!
3: Black avoids playing 3...g5. All other variations are briefly looked at.
4: Other crazy King's Gambit ideas - 3.Be2, 3.d4 and 3.Nc3 - are looked at in Part 2
The King's Gambit Declined
