Chess players are offered a complete fighting repertoire for White against the Sicilian with 1.e4 c5 2.d4 cxd4 3.c3. The Morra Gambit is a popular weapon at club level, but can it be effective at grandmaster level? Marc Esserman believes so and he has 2700-rated scalps to back up his view.
Esserman is the world’s leading expert on the Morra Gambit and he shares all his secrets and many novelties in a lively witty style. The Morra leads to exciting gambit play, so some players decline the offer with 3...Nf6 – Esserman also shows how White can attack this cautious defense.
Don’t be afraid of the Sicilian – unleash Mayhem in the Morra!
Marc Esserman is an International Master from the USA who has played and analyzed the Morra Gambit for most of his life.
“In 2011, when preparing for the US Championship, I decided to employ the Morra Gambit as a surprise weapon if given the chance. Marc supplied me with a vast amount of analysis and novelties for that tournament and I became convinced that the gambit was not only dangerous, but perfectly sound. There is no greater authority in the world on this line than Marc Esserman and he lays it all out there in this book.”
Foreword by GM Larry Christiansen
