Gambit Killer chess is, after all, a game. It’s important to find the best moves. You don’t need to know everything about chess; what you need to know is the right things! This is why children now learn the game more quickly – they get the right information. Even if they don’t know many things, they have the right patterns in their heads! Th is is my fi rst goal in this book. I want to give you ONLY the information that you need, no more, no less. Of course, this was not an easy task, but I tried my best.
Another thing I consider important is how the information is organized. The same information can be presented in many different ways; sometimes we will understand it perfectly, sometimes not. In my opinion, it is very important that a chess book should follow pedagogical principles to improve the learning process!
Your opponent plays a gambit against you. How dare they!? But how can you punish them? Spanish Grandmaster Salgado has taken a close look at a wide variety of ‘Gambit Lines’.
Many gambit lines, where one or more pawns are sacrificed for the initiative, have to be taken seriously, but Ivan has succeeded in finding many new ideas and theoretical improvements.
The result is the neutralisation or refutation of most of these common and well known ‘Gambits’. This book is simply a must for anyone who wants to be fully prepared to engage in battle against a ‘Gambit Player’.

If you are a gambit player yourself, you need to read this to prepare yourself for new challenges to your systems.
