Attacking Chess: The King's Gambit
A King's Gambit repertoire for White
by Timothy Taylor
Publisher: Everyman Chess, 2013
The King's Gambit is one of the most famous chess openings in the history of the game. White offers a pawn sacrifice and sometimes more in order to grab the centre, a lead in development and a strong initiative. Typically Black accepts the gift, and then fascinating positions arise which are rich in possibilities for both sides.
In this book, former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor delves deeply into the many complex lines of the King’s Gambit, focuses on the key games and developments, builds a repertoire for White, and tells you everything you need to know about playing this enthralling opening.
Attacking Chess is a series which focuses on traditional attacking openings, as well as creative and aggressive ways to play openings that are not always associated with attacking chess. It provides hard-hitting repertoires and weapons designed for players of all levels.
