King's Gambit (5 video series)

No adventure in chess is complete without deploying a King's Gambit sometime in your career.

Description

Details

No adventure in chess is complete without deploying a King's Gambit sometime in your career; the history of which is almost as old as the modern game itself. It was first analyzed in Giulio Polerio's sixteenth-century manuscript, reached its zenith in the nineteenth-century when it was almost de riguer, had a brief renaissance during the 1960s thanks to Boris Spassky and David Bronstein, only now becoming unfashionable due to defensive techniques. But now, in this Gambit Guide series for ICC, Israeli GM Boris Alterman shows that this romantic of openings can still pack a hefty punch even today for those looking for a surprise weapon at club and tournament level.

Overview of the venerable King's Gambit with beautiful illustrative games Review by David
Rating
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. (Posted on December 17, 2013)
