Esserman: Mayhem in the Morra (kartoniert)
Mayhem in the Morra offers 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 GM 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 defence.
Don\''t be afraid of the Sicilian - unleash Mayhem in the Morra!
• A complete anti-Sicilian repertoire
• Ideal for attacking players
• Hundreds of novelties and improvements
Marc Esserman is an IM from the USA who has played and analysed the Morra Gambit for most of his life.
