Description

Gambits add excitement and imbalances to chess, and an understanding of them is essential for all chess players. This simple guide to gambit play shows that there is no mystery behind pawn sacrifices, and explains when to play them, and how to meet them.

To a chess master, a gambit is an investment of a pawn, not a speculative offer. Pawns can be sacrificed for many reasons, the most common being to open lines, to gain time or to force the opponent's pieces to bad squares. Studying the material in this book will help you develop a feel for how much a pawn is worth, and set you on the road to chess mastery.
