A Gambit Guide through the Open Game Vol.2 - GM Erwin l'Ami
A Gambit Guide through the Open Game Vol.2 – GM Erwin l’Ami

William Davies Evans was a Scottish sea-captain and gave the Evans Gambit that brought White hundreds and thousands of brilliant victories its name.

In Volume 2 of his Gambit Guide, Dutch Grandmaster Erwin l’Ami brings back the romantic days of chess when pawns were routinely sacrificed in huge numbers!

In Volume 1 of this series, we saw the many dangerous gambits White can play after 1.e4 e5.

In Volume 2 we see enterprising gambits such as the Marshall Gambit, the Scotch Gambit, the Jänisch Gambit, and the Evans Gambit mentioned above.

Many of these long-forgotten lines offer plenty of room for creativity and exploration and this DVD is full of new ideas with which you can surprise your opponents.

Apart from a theoretical section and illustrative model games the DVD contains a number of exercises, which allow you to test your new knowledge.
