About the The King's Gambit - Shaw

There was a golden era when The Kings Gambit was the favorite opening of every attacking player. In the glory days of Paul Morphy it was considered almost cowardly to play anything else. Legends such as Spassky and Bronstein kept the flame burning in the 20th century, but its popularity faded as players became distrustful of Whites ultra-aggressive approach. Nevertheless there are honourable exceptions whose games prove that this ancient weapon can still draw blood Short, Nakamura and Zvjaginsev are world-class players who have used the Kings Gambit successfully. In this groundbreaking work, GM John Shaw shows that the ultimate Romantic chess opening remains relevant and dangerous even in the computer era.

Author GM John Shaw has been Scottish Champion three times. This is his most ambitious book to date, and was many years in the making.Specifications

Reviews
  • "The King's Gambit is a fantastic publication that is clearly the result of a tremendous amount of work by Shaw, for which he deserves immense credit. It's not a book for passing the time on public transport, but if the reader is willing to put in the effort to really digest the analysis, there's a lot to be gained. I'm very curious to see whether this publication will spark a revival of the once fashionable opening at the top level; I can confess that the book has inspired at least one grandmaster of dubious repute to add it to his repertoire..." GM David Smerdon, ChessVibes
  • "It took the author five years to write this book... Its truly a work of love." GM Hans Ree, New in Chess
