Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Kotrc-Mieses Gambit (2 part series)

ECO: B01: Scandinavian, Mieses-Kotrc gambit


The Scandinavian or Center Counter with 2…Qxd5 3 Nc3 Qa5 has a reputation of being solid for Black with the position going on to resemble a Caro-Kann or Slav Defense set-up. But for those looking for the cut and thrust of swashbuckling play, then there’s a more speculative approach to 3...Qa5 - the Kotrc-Mieses Gambit with 4.b4?! If Black plays correctly, White should have no compensation for the sacrificed pawn, but it can be difficult to prove this over the board. And in his latest Gambit Guide series, GM Boris Alterman has a closer look at the Kotrc-Mieses Gambit.

I got my 700 rated brother to watch the gambit guides and he immediately improved his tactical vision and he knows the importance of fast development. Now he is rated 900 in only one month (Posted on September 13, 2015)
