    CLEARANCE - Gambits
    Catalog Code: CB0078RB

    In this work he presents a convincing case for players to adopt gambit play. "Only by playing gambits will the chessplayer begin to understand that getting active positions, with the possibility of landing combinative shots, will compensate him for the material sacrificed." Estrin presents concepts and lines of play in every major opening. He provides many practical illustrations, and the number of examples given from his own games clearly shows that he practices what he advocates. 115 diagrams aid the reader in following the analysis. If you don't play these lines, your opponent will!

    Catalog Code: CB0379RB

    Former World Correspondence Champion Estrin has devoted forty years to study of the double king pawn openings.
