The King's Gambit Vol. 1 concentrates on the King's Gambit Accepted with 3 Bc4. Bronstein once said about this move, "You want to play the King's Gambit? Well, Black can draw after 3. Nf3. Play 3. Bc4 if you want to win!" Of course things have developed a lot since Bronstein's times, and this PC-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.

I have 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.

The DVD covers:
1: The Old Main Line 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 Nf6 4 Nc3 c6 5 d4 d5 6 exd5 cxd5 7 Bb3! In this system I recommend that White places his Kingside knight on e2! This is quite a unique and new idea.
2: The New Main Line (Shaw's variation) 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 Nc6! Here I recommend both 4 d4 Nf6! 5 Nc3 Bb4! As a solid line for White and also 4 Nf3 g5!? 5 0-0 with more aggressive play from White.
3: The Bogoljubow variation 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 Nf6 4 Nc3 Nc6 with ....Bb4 to follow.
4: Sokolov's variation 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 Ne7
5: 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 d5!?
6: Black plays an early ...Qh4+ - What should White do!?
7: Less common variations
