The Anti-King's Gambit Chronicles 3

AKG3

GM Hikaru Nakamura : 4...g5 line vs the King's Gambit

4/1/2022 –  This featured game is a reflection of how tactical GM plays. GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave sacrificed 2 pieces to destroy black’s kingside and ended in a Queen versus 3 pieces endgame.

The 2nd featured game is played on the ICCF platform where you play your opponent via email. You notice the rating and the level of play is quite above against 1500 rated players on live games. Most importantly we learn a valuable lesson that it is a must to research chess openings. But have a delicious and hot coffee first…

The 5...g5 move is a standard strategy to protect the f4 pawn but the main idea is to cramp white's position, unable to develop the bishop at c1.

2nd Game: Check diagram below (GAME VIEWER 2)

Black's Game Plan: Attack the white king at the center

Steven Lund's rating is 1340 in ICCF tournaments but the level of play is probably Master caliber as it shows in this game. Bottom line is we learn from this game and use it against King's Gambit players.
