gm-victor-mikhalevskiGambit openings are experiencing a resurgence of popularity at all levels of chess in the 21st century as players seek to catch their opponent off guard and gain decisive advantages early in the opening due to superior preparation in a specific gambit.

In the Empire Chess DVD ¨How Grandmasters Refute Gambits¨ Grandmaster Victor Mikhalevski explains how viewers can dominate with the black pieces against the Scotch Gambit, Goring Gambit, and Danish Gambit. These three gambits can be extremely dangerous if you are caught unprepared, and it is very easy to lose yourself in the complications early in the opening and lose in less than 20 moves! GM Mikhalevski demonstrates how black can convincingly defend himself and fight for a long-term material advantage with conceptually based defensive schemes.

    Sometimes is really hard to start playing with the blacks, and that is because there is a lot of books that only teach you to start the games with the whites. I’m really excited about my new skills and I cannot wait for participating in some tournaments.

    What a wonderful training! I was expecting a boring DVD but this is just amazing! I have learned a lot of things today and I know I’ll keep learning how to improve my gameplay.

  3. Rated 3 out of 5


    I give it a three stars cause first the title is misleading seconded it did not cover the kings gambit.This two things dont make it bad you can just see the description but it is not worth 20.00$ since you can buy a book that covers more groned.I am not mad just i think they could have done better.And OCL there is more to chess than oppenings please concentrate more on that,.
