All chess players are dazzled by the idea of gambit play, whereby one side sacrifices material in the opening to gain certain advantages. But do you have the nerve to gamble when it comes to practical play? Do you know when it's right to sacrifice and when it's better to err on the side of caution? In this book, Angus Dunnington aims to answer these questions and many more as he takes an in-depth look at gambits in the modern game. By using illustrative examples, Dunnington explores the key aspects of successful gambit play, while also underlining the reasons why some gambits work while others flounder. The book is a must for those wishing to sharpen up their opening weapons.
