William Davies Evans was a Welsh sea-captain and gave the Evans Gambit that brought White hundreds and thousands of brilliant victories its name. In Volume 2 of his Gambit Guide Dutch Grandmaster Erwin l’Ami brings back the romantic days of chess when pawns were routinely sacrificed in huge numbers! In Volume 1 of this series we saw the many dangerous gambits White can play after 1.e4 e5. In Volume 2 we see enterprising gambits such as the Marshall Gambit, the Scotch Gambit, the Jänisch Gambit, and the Evans Gambit mentioned above. Many of these long forgotten lines offer plenty of room for creativity and exploration and this DVD is full of new ideas with which you can surprise your opponents. Apart from a theoretical section and illustrative model games the DVD contains a number of exercises, which allow you to test your new knowledge. L’Ami, winner of the Reykjavik open 2015 and a former second to World Champion Veselin Topalov, is the perfect man to guide you through the maze of dazzling complications!

The Spanish Opening is one of the absolutely oldest. It is named after the Spanish priest Ruy López de Segura, who in 1561 presented his analyses on this way of starting the game in a book. But even today the Spanish can be seen in many games of top players and it is quite clearly the most important of the Open Games. Not only does White develop his bishop, he also immediately puts pressure on the black e5-pawn. Whereas previously 3...a6 was almost obligatory, nowadays 3...Nf6 – the Berlin Defence – is favoured.=> More products: Ruy Lopez
