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.
L’Ami, winner of the Reykjavik open 2015 and a former second to World Champion Veselin Topalov, is the perfect man to guide you through the maze of dazzling complications!
