Simon Williams: An aggressive Repertoire

The author concentrates on the King’s Gambit accepted with 3.Bc4. Bronstein once said about this move, ‘Play 3.Bc4 if you want to win!’ Of course things have developed a lot since Bronstein’s times, and this DVD aims to bring people up to speed with all the latest developments and new ideas that are playable, with both colours in this fascinating variation.

Simon Williams has included a lot of novelties and interesting attacking variations that should wet the lips of any attacking player, looking for an interesting way of meeting 1...e5! With the Berlin opening now leading to dull equal positions, it may well be time to start taking a look at the King’s Gambit in more detail. The opening leads to crazy interesting positions, where Black is placed under pressure from move two.
