Foxy DVD Series – Vol 80
White offers a pawn to divert the Black e-pawn and wants to build a stronger center with d2-d4. Theory has shown that in order for Black to maintain the one pawn advantage, moves must be made that seriously weaken the position of the black pieces. The King’s Gambit is one of the oldest documented openings as it was examined by the 17th century Italian chess player Giulio Polerio.
IM Andrew Martin brings a modern style to this surprise opening weapon for white. This video is new and complete, covering all variations of the King’s Gambit Accepted and Declined 1.e4 e5 2.f4 – part 2 of 2.
