View Full Version : Sicilian players be warned

I have just received the latest issue of Kaissiber which analyses the Sicilian Wing Gambit. They made use of The Gambiteer volume 1 which suggests this variation.

There are some new ideas which in my opinion have strengthened the line for white. The line is no longer refuted but leads to unclear positions. Any player who plays into this line without proper preparation is going to wonder what is happening.

This can often apply even to refuted gambits.

ChessPub's got this line (minus annotations) which apparently isn't considered in Gambiteer.

It is not considered in Kaissiber either. I shall check my database

This needs lots of analysis. Maybe I will look at for the next issue of Australian Correspondence Chess Quarterly.
