Aggressive Goring Gambit in the Scotch Game
Today I’m excited to share with you my new favourite chess opening gambit for White after 1.e4. It happens in the Scotch Game after the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 and White sacrifices another pawn 4.c3, which leads to the Goring Gambit.
White’s idea in this gambit is to achieve a very active position with a lot of attacking opportunities. This aggressive gambit also has a trap that has the potential to defeat the world champion Magnus Carlsen!
