Today I’d like to share with you a really cool game played by the World Champion Magnus Carlsen, where he used the Prisoner’s Gambit (also called as the Norfolk Gambit) which is followed by the moves 1.Nf3 d5 2.b3 c5 3.e4. The gambit gets its name as it was first played by a prisoner in Norfolk.

At first sight, this pawn sacrifice might look weird, but it makes a lot of sense. In fact, Carlsen played this gambit against Viswanathan Anand. Watch the video lesson and learn:
