  • Gambits
    In this work he presents a convincing case for players to adopt gambit play. "Only by playing gambits will the chessplayer begin to understand that getting active positions, with the possibility of landing combinative shots, will compensate him for the material sacrificed." Estrin presents concepts and lines of play in every major opening. He provides many practical illustrations, and the number of examples given from his own games clearly shows that he practices what he advocates. 115 diagrams aid the reader in following the analysis. If you don't play these lines, your opponent will!

    The subject of this book, the Semi-Slav, is characterized b the moves ... d5, ... e6 nd ... c6 versus the Queen's Gambit. Inside the reader will find complete coverage of all lines excepting the Meran and the Botvinnik System.

Bxb4 Qxe4+) to refined positional struggles (The Romih Variation 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e5 3. Nc3 c6 4. Nf3 Nf6 5. e3 Nbd7 6. Bd3 Bb4.) In the past, such players as Botvinnik, Kotov, Najdorf, Reshevsky and Euwe debated its finer points. Today's Games all use it on a regular basis.
