  1. Tal Gambit (2 part series)

    Regular Price: $5.98

    Special Price $2.99

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Tal Gambit (2 part series) ECO: B21: Sicilian: Grand Prix attack Books and songs were written about him; and the Tal Memorial now underway in Moscow, the strongest tournament of the year, further reminds us of the legacy of the incomparable genius that was Mikhail Tal. ("finger TalMemorial09"). Tal was also known as "The Magician from Riga" because of his extremely powerful and imaginative attacking style. And back in 1979 (against Englishman IM Bill Hartston), Tal unleashed on the world the “Tal Gambit” with 1 e4 c5 2 f4 d5 3 exd5 Nf6!; a move that practically overnight put 2 f4 out of business. He only drew the game in question against Hartston - but Tal’s energetic play throughout proved to be a model for how to play against 2 f4 that soon players had to resort to 2 Nc3 first followed then only by f4. . And in a tribute to Tal during his memorial event in Moscow (covered live throughout on Chess.FM), GM Boris Alterman gives us a timely reminder in his new two-part series of Gambit Guide of why the Tal Gambit is such an effective riposte to 2 f4 in the Sicilian.

  2. Spielmann Gambit (2 part series)

    Regular Price: $5.98

    Special Price $2.99

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Spielmann Gambit (2 part series) ECO: B02: Alekhine's defense: Spielmann variation If you are looking for swashbuckling gambit play, then look no further than 'The Master of Attack' Rudolph Spielmann (1883-1942), who once said that "A good sacrifice is one that is not necessarily sound but leaves your opponent dazed and confused." Spielmann came up with an almost caveman-like gambit to take on the hypermodern Alekhine's Defense when players tried to transpose into a classical French after 1. e4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. e5 Nfd7 with 4. e6!? This is a dangerous gambit that gives White easy piece-play and can indeed leave Black dazed and confused, when just the slightest of slips can prove fatal and all roads leading to miniatureville. And in his latest Gambit Guide series, GM Boris Alterman takes a closer look at the Spielmann gambit for White. Learn More
  3. Damiano gambit (2 part series)

    Regular Price: $5.98

    Special Price $2.99

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Damiano gambit (2 part series) ECO: C40: Damiano's defense One of the first chess books to be published in Italy, at the height of the Renaissance, was written by the Portuguese master Pedro Damiano back in 1512. In it, he noted that after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 the reply 2…Nc6 is good, 2…d6 is not so good, and 2…f6 (the opening named after him) is worst. Many believed for years thereafter that the outright refutation of the Damiano to be 3 Nxe5. However, even today, the Damiano with 2…f6?! retains something of a cult underground following. Even Bobby Fischer played the recommended refutation of it during his legendary simultaneous tour of the US in 1964 and could only draw. The shock value alone of playing the Damiano with 2…f6?! in online play has seen a lot of positive results for Black. And following many requests from ICC members on what to do against it, our resident gambit guru, GM Boris Alterman, overviews it in his latest Gambit Guide series for Chess.FM. Learn More
  4. Petroffs Defense Damiano variation (2 part series)

    Regular Price: $5.98

    Special Price $2.99

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Petroff's Defense Damiano variation (2 part series) ECO: C42: Petrov: Damiano variation In volume 10 of the excellent NIC series Secrets of Opening Surprises, Israeli IM Or Cohen's article, "Petroff for Beginners," overviews the mirror-image opening of the Damiano variation with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 Nxe5 Nxe4!? which is reduced to a small note in the ECO, but that can set many pitfalls for white, as black gets a lot more out of the “beginner’s mistake” of copying white’s moves than most players realize. Much of the new pioneering work on the Damiano variation can be attributed to the Austrian IM Friedrich Karl Volkmann, who almost single-handedly has changed the evaluation of many of the key lines once thought to refute the venerable Damiano, so-called as it is similar to the mainline of the Damiano gambit with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 f6?! 3 Nxe5 Qe7. And in his latest series of GM Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide on Chess.FM, our resident guru on all things gambits takes a closer look at all the new developments in the mainline of the Petroff's Defense Damiano variation with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 Nxe5 Nxe4 4 Qe2 Qe7 5 Qxe4 d6.

  5. Vienna: Frankenstein-Dracula (2 part series)

    Regular Price: $5.98

    Special Price $2.99

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Vienna: Frankenstein-Dracula (2 part series) ECO: C27: Vienna game It's trick or treat time with a special Halloween edition of Gambit Guide this week, as GM Boris Alterman investigates the Frankenstein-Dracula variation in the Vienna Opening with 1 e4 e5 2 Nc3 Nf6 3 Bc4 Nxe4 4 Qh5 Nd6 5 Bb3 Nc6 6 Nb5 g6 7 Qf3 f5 8 Qd5 Qe7 9 Nxc7+ Kd8 10 Nxa8 b6. This particular hair-raising exchange sacrifice in the Vienna was given it's ghoulishly gothic title by correspondence guru Tim Harding, who wrote many articles about it during the late 1970s. He explained that it is so-called because it is terrifying for both sides, and, much like those two famous gentleman of the night, has an incredible facility for rising - theory-wise at least - from the grave.

  9. French Classical Variation

    Regular Price: $2.99

    Special Price $1.50

    French Classical Variation:

    The Classical line is the most principled and I believe the strongest response to the French defense. Currently many elite player opt for the classical line, when encountered with the French defense in the opening. White usually has more space advantage but black tries to put as much pressure as possible on the d4 pawn and try to exchange the bad light-squared bishop when there is an opportunity. If he manages to do that black is ok; if not usually black has to defend passively in a slightly cramped position.

  10. French Exchange Variation

    Regular Price: $2.99

    Special Price $1.50

    French Exchange Variation:

    Exchange variation of the French defense usually doesn't pose many problems for black , however black needs to play accurately to equalize in the opening. In symmetrical lines black is absolutely safe. The only line that offers white some active play is the one with 4.c4, with chances to get an opening advantage. Overall I would say that the Exchange line is relatively safe for Black.

Qe2, which was played against me by GM Vitor Laznicka - 2684 FIDE rating - at the recent World Open Tournament 2013! In 2012 the move 2.d3 was uses by none other than number one in the world GM Magnus Carlsen, to win a nice positional game against another top 5 player in the world: GM Fabiano Caruana.

  12. Smith-Morra Gambit

    Regular Price: $2.99

    Special Price $1.50

    The Smith-Morra Gambit against the Sicilian Defense (1 e4 c5 2 d4 cxd4 3 c3 dxc3 4 Nxc3!?) is perhaps not common in grandmaster chess, but at club level it can be a very potent attacking weapon.  The gambit is named after two players, Pierre Morra from France (1900-1969) and Ken Smith (1930-1999) of the Dallas Chess Club, who popularized it to the masses by writing nine books and fifty articles about it. At grandmaster level, the Nge7 variations are seen as best play against it - but at the recent US Open in Orlando, one of the world’s top grandmasters, Loek van Wely of The Netherlands, proved to be the highest-profile victim yet for the Smith-Morra, as he lost in a spectacular attacking game to IM Marc Esserman.  Learn More

    Regular Price: $2.99

    Special Price $1.50

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Hector Gambit in Caro-Kann ECO: B11: 5.O-O, Caro-Kann: two knights variation The swashbuckling Swede, GM Jonny Hector, firmly believes that playing chess has to be fun! With his enterprising style of play, he’s often described as “the last of the chess romantics,” with his wild, gambiting approach that certainly wouldn’t have been out of place at the tail-end of the 19th century in the game. Jonny has featured prominently in many past editions of Gambit Guide, and yet again we turn to him for another of his specialities: the Hector Gambit in the Caro-Kann Defense with 1 e4 c6 2 Nc3 d5 3 Nf3 dxe4 4 Ng5 - a truly in-your-face, aggressive system that he’s pioneered, and with excellent results.
