    Soviet Chess

    How to Play the From Gambit

    $14.95
    Henry Bird's 1.f4 has become the choice of many players who wish to avoid the voluminous theory surrounding 1.e4, 1.d4 and even 1.c4.

The lines which arise often involve forced piece sacrifices for both sides, and knowledge of the middlegame ideas is critical. Learn More
