Gambits, where one side sacrifices material for an advance in development, are the most exciting and popular openings in chess! This book contains every important gambit opening and variation ever played more than two thousand opening strategies in all! Each gambit is covered in detail with a diagram showing the standard position representative of the gambit, the move orders taken to get there, and an explanation in plain language of the thinking behind the moves. More than one hundred games show you how the ideas behind the gambit influence the development of the game. 784 pages
