  • How To Play The Shabalov-Shirov Gambit

    The 90s were a decade of complex openings:  in particular, the King's Indian and the Semi-Slav. In 1992, a peculiar attacking idea came out of Latvia to combat the Semi-Slav, Meran Variation. 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 e6 5.e3 Nbd7 6... | Read More
