Kings Gambit (5 video series)
- Product Review (submitted on December 17, 2013):
- The videos are an overview of many of the wild and wonderful variations of 1 e4e5 2 f4ef. Games from the earliest recorded examples to reasonably modern times illustrate beautifully the twists and turns of this hectic gambit opening. Many illogical and strange positions arise where, from behind some corner around a corner, the winning move crashes in! Grandmaster Boris Alterman presents these videos in a logical order which is visually memorable. However, I regret to say, the verbal presentation did not have a natural flow and frequently became frustrating. Having heard GM Alterman expressing himself very well many times, this is disappointing. Over all, the games are worth seeing and the format works.
