What do grandmasters think of the Belgrade Gambit?:
"...Not everyone wishes to sacrifice a pawn (or even two) so early in the opening to obtain the initiative. For that reason the [Belgrade] Gambit hasn t become very popular. All the same this gambit leads to quite exciting and lively play.. I think, those who favor stormy complications should include the gambit in their repertoire."
- Anatoly Karpov
"...for years the Belgrade Gambit has been considered unsatisfactory for White but now I am of the opinion that White has the better chances and Black has no easy defense."
- Grand Master Lev Gutman
In addition, there are still a number of top-flight players who play the Belgrade Gambit today, e.g. IM Igor Polovodin, GM J. Hector, GM Juan Bellon Lopez, CMCs Dr. Karl-Heinz Kraft and Joop van Oosterom and even the up-and-coming GM and winner of the last two Russian Championships, Peter Svidler.
In this book, Monson opens his secret files on this super-sharp attacking gambit and gives you access to reams of original and revolutionary analysis.
