Perhaps no other opening in the long history of chess has created so much excitement, controversy and emotion as the King's Gambit. Idolized in its heyday by the 19th century 'romantic school', dismissed by some contemporary Grandmasters and feared by others, the King's Gambit continues to shock even the most battled-hardened players and leads to chess at its most bloodthirsty. White's strategy is simple: on the second move he or she gambits a pawn in pursuit of active piece play and central domination. Inevitably play becomes extremely sharp - one slip by either side often leads to fatal consequences. In "The King's Gambit Uncensored", Jonathan Tait examines this contentious opening from both sides of the board. Using illustrative games and drawing upon his vast experience of the King's Gambit, Tait investigates the typical tactics and strategies, and recommends a mixture of critical and fun-seeking lines for both White and Black. He also delves into some variations that have been previously considered too crazy even for the King's Gambit - this book is truly the uncut version of this famous opening!
