John Shaw is a chess grandmaster who has been Scottish Champion three times. This is his most ambitious book to date, and was many years in the making.

The King's Gambit is one of the oldest documented openings, as it was examined by the 17th-century Italian chess player Giulio Cesare Polerio . [1] It is also in an older book by Luis Ramírez de Lucena . [2]

The King's Gambit was one of the most popular openings in the 19th century, but is infrequently seen at master level today, as Black can obtain a reasonable position by returning the extra pawn to consolidate . There are two main branches, depending on whether or not Black plays 2...exf4: the King's Gambit Accepted (KGA) and the King's Gambit Declined (KGD).

While the King's Gambit Accepted was a staple of Romantic era chess, the opening began to decline with the rise of positional play in the 1870s, although King's Gambit Declined variants remained popular among high-level players until World War I. By the 1920s, 1.e4 openings fell into disrepute and were ridiculed by hypermodern players such as Richard Reti and Aron Nimzovitch , and players like Frank Marshall and Jose Raul Capablanca , who had been known as dashing attackers prior to WWI, largely switched to 1.d4 and 1.c4 openings and positional play.
