TRICKY Chess Gambit for Black Against 1.d4

TRICKY Chess Gambit for Black Against 1.d4

If you are an aggressive chess player who is not sure how to deal with the White’s first move 1.d4, when your opponents try to play the Queen’s Gambit or the London System, this video lesson is right for you!

In this video lesson, I’ll share with you an unusual and tricky chess opening gambit called the Hartlaub-Charlick Gambit from the Englund Gambit, which happens after the moves 1.d4 e5 2.dxe5 d6. Your first move 1…e5 stops 2.Bf4, therefore your opponents cannot play the London System anymore.

Watch the full video lesson as I present to you the main opening setup for Black, common middlegame plan, and how to execute these plans in different variations. You will also learn what to do when your opponents do not accept the gambit and play some deviating variations.

Below, you can find the variations shown in the video:
