Invented nearly 90 years ago by the Austrian master Adolf Albin (1848-1920), the Albin counter-gambit (1 d4 d5 2 c4 e5!?) gives up a pawn for space in the center and is generally thought to be unsound - but Black has many tricks and traps to hold the balance.
Description

Details

Invented nearly 90 years ago by the Austrian master Adolf Albin (1848-1920), the Albin counter-gambit (1 d4 d5 2 c4 e5!?) gives up a pawn for space in the center and is generally thought to be unsound - but Black has many tricks and traps to hold the balance. For many years it was a big favorite at club level, but regarded as dubious at top level, as Black doesnt gain full value for the sacrificed pawn. But Alexander Morozevich soon changed all that by breathing new life into it. And in his latest Gambit Guide series, GM Boris Alterman takes a closer look at the Albin Counter Gambit.

1 d4 d5 2 c4 e5!?

very good Review by Conehead

this video fills in all the basic traps and tactics that can happen in the first 5 moves of the Albin Counter Gambit, which if you are going to attempt to play you need to know. I tried to play this against an 1800+ player and got beat in less then 20 moves. But it was not the video fault it was my strategy. For the price it can't be beat, but you will need a book on the mainline - mco 15 is not that good of a reference. I recommend this video (Posted on February 16, 2018)
