The surprising Meadow Hay Gambit 1.a4 e5 2.Ra3

What looks like a clear mistake (hanging your rook on move 2), can turn out to be a powerful weapon to surprise your opponent. A setup that you would think only beginners would do, sacrificing an exchange, has some clear strategies behind it. After an online match between American Grandmasters Brandon Jacobson and Daniel Naroditsky, the setup gained popularity, and even saw Magnus Carlsen adopt it in his online games - with a massive positive score.

Let Robert Ris introduce you into the subtle strategies for White (and Black), and what you need to know to include it in your own games. Play at your own risk!
