The search continues for a refutation of the Volga Gambit, and White is quite happy if he can achieve a slight advantage. According to the Icelandic grandmaster Henrik Danielsen, to get this White should accept the gambit and go on to fianchetto his king's bishop. The key move is 10.Rb1 - meaning that at any point White is prepared to play b3. And the key game is Kramnik-Topalov from Wijk 2003 - since then the Bulgarian has never again played the Volga Gambit. With his video series the author provides a complete repertoire for White against this gambit which still remains very popular with club players.
