Wing Gambit: Sicilian Defense is one of the most common responses against 1.e4.
So, if you play 1.e4 you really have two options…
Option 1 is to learn a TON of opening theory and hope to beat your opponent at their “home-field” pet lines (Difficulty level: Very Hard).
Option 2 is to confuse, and surprise your opponent on move 3 AND, force problems from the very beginning, seizing the initiative (Difficulty level: Much Easier).
If your pick Option 2, I have great news for you.
FM Viktor Neustroev is back with the opening that can achieve all of that.
The Wing Gambit is an ultra-rare opening involving a pawn sac, that can be played against nearly ANY Sicilian!
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.b4!
You get central control, good development, and easy-to-follow attacking plans.
