The Stafford Gambit is a deadly opening for black if white does not know how to defend.

Study the Stafford

I would like to highlight two studies with which you can start learning the opening. One for black on the attacking side and one for the white side trying to defend.

The Stafford Gambit is for the black side. It contains many tactics that you must know to break through whites defense.

Refuting the Stafford Gambit is for the white side trying to defend. This study includes all the lines you need to know by heart not to run into the tactics of black.

Video Content

There is awesome video content about the Stafford Gambit available on youtube.

Eric Rosen is most likely responsible for the surge in Stafford Gambit players with his video The Trappiest Opening in Chess?.

If you want to learn how to defend yourself against the opening as white, I recommend the video by Daniel Naroditsky: Snuffing the Stafford Gambit. In the video Daniel explains how to best defend, covering many lines and variations that you encounter as white.
