Foxy DVD Series – Vol 169
The Albin Countergambit is a magnificent weapon for club players. This counterattack even works well at the master level, although tends to be used as a surprise higher up. Here we explore new winning ideas from the games of GM Alexander Morozevich (2678).
On this modern DVD, FIDE Senior Trainer and IM Andrew Martin develop a repertoire for Black, based mainly around an early …Nge7 in most of the main lines. This is the approach used by super GM Morozevich and exciting life is guaranteed.
The Modern Albin Counter-Gambit will take the unprepared White player by surprise. After 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5, if White takes the e-pawn then Black plays 3…d4, and his mighty d-pawn will be an effective wedge, splitting the White position in two.
This DVD covers all other main lines of the Albin Counter-Gambit:
- Other White fifth moves
- Spassky’s 4.e4
- Other White Ideas
Do you want to win more games with Black against the Queens Gambit? Are you willing to take a risk to gain the reward? If the answer to both these questions is “Yes!” then the Albin is definitely the opening for you.
