The Alterman Gambit Guide: White Gambits is aimed at club players who would like to play sharp, gambit openings with White after 1.e4. The ideas behind each of the gambit openings in the Guide are explained and illustrated using annotated key games. These are followed by a theoretical section which explains the most important lines of play in that gambit. Boris Alterman includes chapters on the Evans Gambit, Caro-Kann Panov Attack, Morra Gambit, Philidor, Danish Gambit, Urusov Gambit, Morphy Attack, Cochrane Gambit, Max Lange Attack and Milner-Barry Gambit. He offers White a gambit option against all of Black's major defences.
Ukranian born Grandmaster Boris Alterman studied in the Botvinnik-Kasparov chess school and is now living in Israel. He worked on the openings book for the Deep Junior chess software which drew a match with Kasparov in 2003.
