    Empire Chess Volume 35

     

    The Smith-Morra Gambit is an extremely effective surprise weapon because many Sicilian Defense players wrongly believe the Smith-Morra to be outdated and easily refutable. While the Smith-Morra Gambit is rarely seen at the elite Grandmaster level, it remains a strong opening for white against the Sicilian Defense as black is guaranteed to face long-lasting, unpleasant pressure in every part of the board. Starting with 1. e4 c5 2. d4 cxd4 3. c3!? white immediately places pressure on black by sacrificing a central pawn to gain a rapid lead in development and long-term compensation via pressure on the C and D files. Black is forced to walk a tightrope from the very first moves as the slightest inaccuracy can lead to a decisive advantage for white.

     

    ¨Smashing the Sicilian Defense with the Smith-Morra Gambit¨ features over 3 hours of high-quality chess instruction from Grandmaster Ronen Har-Zvi, an extremely well-known chess trainer with over a decade of experience! This chess DVD is targeted at beginner and intermediate chess players as GM Har-Zvi first introduces the main concepts of the Smith-Morra Gambit and later delves deeper into concrete variations. GM Har-Zvi also explains common tactical patterns that you should always be aiming for with the white pieces, as black will be facing considerable pressure in the center – especially on the C and D files from white’s active rooks! This chess DVD is guaranteed to improve your results with deep preparation of an explosive gambit against the Sicilian Defense!
