About the book

Mikhail Yudovich (1911-1987), International Master and International Correspondence Grandmaster, is the author of a number of books on chess theory and practice, which have been published in the USSR and abroad. He devoted this book to the complicated and sharp openings—gambits. The author gives an insight into the history of gambits, and this as well as what follows (the selection of 23 games taken from both classical and modern practice of great chess-masters) should interest those who already know how to play. The gambit tactics can be picked up by studying the examples given in the book, which are chosen for the pleasure they give as well as for their instructive value. The reader will also get useful information about such notions as space and gain of time, harmonious development of pieces and preparation of an attack. The book is intended for amateurs of chess.

The book was translated from Russian by Oleg Zilbert was published in 1989 by Planeta Publishers.
