1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 c5 4. d5 b5… That’s one of around 30 ways to reach the Blumenfeld Gambit – a peculiar position where Black is ready to sacrifice a pawn and gain massive central control in return.
With bishop on the b7 square and a semi-open f-file…
Black is eyeing the king on the kingside. And that White’s pawn on b5 – that waits alone for his comrades to back him up – might meet an unfortunate ending soon.
In short, Black is playing for a win. Who cares about draws anymore, right?
With GM Misa Pap’s all-new video training, Blumenfeld Gambit, stretching over three hours, you can execute this fiery pseudo-gambit opening for Black in a flawless way, with a winning plan and killer sequences… while White fumbles around looking for the “best moves”.
