CLEARANCE - Who's afraid of the King's Gambit

Product Code: CB0200RB

Alternative Views:


The King's Gambit sometimes strikes fear into players who would like to enjoy the various Open Games such as the Spanish, Italian or Russian Games. There is no rational reason to be afraid of this old opening. Almost two hundred years of serious analysis has not yet exhausted the possibilities for either player, but in practice Black scores quite well.

To defend, or counterattack, against the King's Gambit you need to be familiar with many of the variations available to White. In this book, National Master Eric Schiller guides you through every single plausible attempt to achieve an advantage for White, and shows how Black can meet all of them, often emerging with an advantage early in the game.

Both tournament and correspondence players will benefit from the thorough research and clear explanations provided in this book. It can be used by players of any strength to prepare a complete defense to the King's Gambit. This new edition has brought the material up to date into 1997 and deals with suggestions in several new books advocating the White side of the opening.
