My friend Marquismarkymark and I both say we're the worst student of our chess teacher (who  might say we're both right).

Mark and I seemed to learn at the same time a most valuable secret of gambit play: Most players are afraid to offer gambits because they fear opponents who defend accurately, exchange shrewdly, and enter the endgame with a material advantage. The positional truth is that when time gained in exchange for material loss persists in the endgame, the gambit player isn't losing. In an endgame with rooks, the opening sacrificer who keeps his time advantage is probably winning.
