Book DescriptionThe King's Gambit is one of the most ancient openings, its history dating back more than 500 years.

It was highly popular in the 19th century, and in the 20th century it was played regularly by such famous grandmasters as Paul Keres, David Bronstein and Boris Spassky, and also on several occasions by Bobby Fischer.

Even today a number of leading players keep playing the King's Gambit in their armoury as a surprise weapon.

The present book by Nikolai Kalinichenko, an international grandmaster in correspondence play, gives a systematic analysis of the King's Gambit using more than 300 annotated games, classic and modern, providing the reader with a sound knowledge of all the standard variations, together with their typical strategic and tactical ideas.
