Item description for The King's Gambit by Jan Pinski...
The King's Gambit must be the favorite chess opening of every attacking player. In the glory days of Paul Morphy in the nineteenth century, to play anything else was regarded as almost cowardly but in modern times the popularity of the King's Gambit has faded. Today's players, under the malign influence of their computer programs, are more materialistic and loath to sacrifice a pawn for long-term compensation. The honorable exceptions are Alexander Morozevich and Nigel Short, two world-class players who are willing to risk the King's Gambit. Jan Pinski, an International Master from Poland, seeks to popularize this ancient opening, with in-depth analysis solving many of the supposed problems with this opening. Despite the complexity of the material, the reader will have no difficulties following the book, as Pinski clearly explains the issues using his skill as an experienced journalist and chess author.
