Latvian Gambit

Latvian Gambit

The Latvian Gambit is a very aggressive opening defense for black against one of the more common openings for white. This opening is not seen much at master level chess as most masters refuse to give up material early on in a game...

Re: Latvian Gambit

The Latvian Gambit is a very aggressive opening defense for black against one of the more common openings for white. This opening is not seen much at master level chess as most masters refuse to give up material early on in a game. Below master level play there are strong advocates of the Latvian Gambit and I personally enjoy the possiblities that arise from this opening.

Watch the video below to get a detailed explanation of the Latvian Gambit.
