The King's Gambit: A Modern View of A Swashbuckling Opening

£10.49

Product description

This soft cover book is in good condition. There are no internal markings or annotations. The page tops, bottoms and edges have all begun to yellow. The yellowing, however, is very mild and in no way interferes with the text. Externally, the book's spine has been broken once and, when held at certain angles, small scratches or indentations can been seen in the cover. Otherwise there appears to be no damage to the book's exterior. All in all a good copy.

'The King's Gambit is the most daring and dangerous opening in the game of chess, as White throws caution to the wind, and Black must know what he is doing if he wants to avoid an early defeat. The King's Gambit was all the rage in the 19th century, but has an enduring popularity throughout the chess world. Remarkably, it is once more the focus of top grandmaster attention, for example when Nigel Short played it three times in a row against the world's best at the Madrid 1997 tournament.'
