Book Description

We have all had the experience of facing nasty gambits and ultra-aggressive opening play. It's scary and it's always been difficult to find good, practical advice on how to react. Now, however, help is at hand.

In this book, Sam Collins tackles this subject head on. He explores in depth the basic gambit approaches, the typical mistakes made at all levels, the world-class defensive and counterattacking techniques displayed by the great players, and how you can learn from them. In addition, he covers some key theory of many popular gambits in modern chess. Be bold, be brave and grab those pawns!

This book shows you how to:
Beat unsound gambits Keep a cool head under pressure Counterattack when the time is right Make your extra material count
