The Exhilarating Elephant Gambit
This book introduces the magical world of the Elephant Gambit, analyses key games and provides numerous novelties that we believe will lead to a revival of the gambit for the club player. But please do not tell anyone! We want to keep the opening’s bad reputation, while we rack up the points. If you are the kind of player who thrives in complicated positions and is not afraid to take risks, then look no further than this book. Read it, and you will be ready to play the Elephant Gambit.
The Elephant Gambit is perhaps the boldest opening in all of chess theory. By meeting 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 with 2...d5!?, Black takes the fight to his opponent and aims to seize the initiative as early as possible.
The Exhilarating Elephant Gambit offers a complete repertoire for Black, based on 3.exd5 Bd6 or 3.Nxe5 Bd6 4.d4 dxe4. In return for the sacrificed pawn, Black ensures himself of quick and active development with most of his pieces pointing menacingly towards the enemy kingside. Attacking and other tactical resources abound, with a future ...e4-e3 advance often mauling White’s position like an Elephant’s tusk. With original analysis of all variations and improvements against all published “refutations”, this book contains everything you need to shock, surprise and stampede your opponents.
