In today’s video lesson, I’d like to share with you a really powerful opening weapon for White (in 1.e4) against Black’s classical response 1…e5. You can play 2.f4 and go to the King’s Gambit.

kings gambit chess openingThe King’s Gambit was considered one of the most sharpest and dangerous chess openings about 100-200 years ago. Nowadays, it’s kind of forgotten, and I think that it really deserves to be brought back.

Yes, maybe you should not play it when you play a really strong opponent like Magnus Carlsen. But it works like crazy against club-level opponents! Additionally, most chess players are not very familiar with this opening. Even if they are familiar, there’s a sideline that you can use to surprise your opponents.

You can play 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Bc4 – in this case, you will get your opponents out of their opening knowledge and get a powerful resulting position. Watch the following video lesson where I’ve explained the overall idea of this opening for White, and you can use it to win your opponents.
