The Stafford Gambit

This study contains a lot of the traps in the Stafford Gambit. These traps are from the video from Eric Rosen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nH_fiqlLp2U) about the Gambit titled "The Trappiest Opening in Chess? | Win Quickly with the Stafford Gambit". As the title suggests, the Stafford Gambit is filled with deadly traps. A fun opening for the risk takers.

Refuting the Stafford Gambit

The aim of this study is to refute the Stafford Gambit. Learn these lines if you have problems against the new popular gambit. This study contains the lines by Daniel Naroditsky from his video Snuffing the Stafford Gambit. Checkout the video if you want to learn more about the lines and why the moves are played: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLzLAJcRn-Q

Jerome Gambit

This study contains lines for the Jerome Gambit. A fun opening gambit where white not only sacrifices one piece but two! The aim of this gambit is to strip the king of its cover by sacrificing a bishop and a knight to make it easier to attack and checkmate. This gambit is very risky, because White sacrifices two pieces for his attack and thus gains a very high material disadvantage.

English Opening Repertoire

This is a comprehensive English opening (1. c4) repertoire. It is best suited for intermediate level players and above (~1500+).

The Evans Gambit

This is a study about the Evans Gambit inspired by the video from Hanging Pawns in his series about the Italian Game.

A study with the popular lines from the Lucchini Gambit. The Lucchini Gambit is filled with many deadly traps. A fun opening against the Italian Game. If you want to learn more about the Lucchini Gambit check out Eric Rosens video about it: https://youtu.be/STwcmr-nIBo

Orthoschnapp Gambit

A few lines of the Orthoschnapp Gambit Opening. The engine may not like it and on the professional level it has not scored well, but judging by the games in the Lichess database the Orthoschnapp Gambit has fared quite well against amateur players with a lot of aggression right out of the gates. Inspired by this short game by Eric Rosen playing the gambit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEy6DtVBNLM
