I have not the same variation than brabo as best for White  in my comments now a little outdated (some years now)...

It's a gambit in the classical line of Boleslavsky (Na4 was Bosleslavsky's idea), and popular mainly in the eighties (1985-1990).

In their book Psakhis and Tiemann gave 14.Bd3 and 14.Qb3 are the main reason for the out-fashion qualifier for the sacrifice. More recently in one of his book, Khalifman is cheering 14.Bd3

Some of the variations, but it would be better to analyze a lot of Jan Timmann last games as White in this line

A) 14.Bd3 Ba6 (14..Nc5 15.Nxb5 bxc5 16.oo Bd7!? 17.f5! Khalifman ... 17...c4 18.Bxc4!? dxc4 19.Nxc4 Qd5 20.Na6+ Ke7 21.Qd3!?) 15.Nb2 Bxd3 16.Nxd3 Qc3 17.Ne2 oo! 18.Rc1 Qa5 19.Qc2 Qa6 20.Nb3 Rac8 21.Qd2 Rc4 unclear)

Wang Zili-Borges,Thassalonique 1988 (Short)

B) 14.Qb3 (with the idea Qb5) a6! 15.Rc1 oo 16.Be2 b5 17.Nc5 Nxc5 18.Rxc5 Bb7 19.Rc2 Rac8 20.oo Rxc2 21.Qxc2 Qc3

C) 14.Qc2!?  Timman-Jussupow,Tilburg 1986

Like in other gambits line of the French defence, it is not so easy for the unprepared players...so it's good advice for White, to have a well worked analysis against the sacrifice

My old analysis says 14.Bd3 Ba6 15.Nb2 Nc5 16.Bxa6 Qxa6 17.Qe2 Qa3 18.Qb5+ Ke7 19.0-0 Qe3+ 20.Rf2 Rhc8 21.Raf1 and black has not enough compensation. I haven't looked at this line for ages but it still looks good.


For the record, Negi also gives this line as leading to +/-. His main line is 17...d3, which he also likes for White.

Greetings.

Does anyone have a bust to the following gambit? I know that 13...b5 is bad, but how do you combat 13...b6? I've encountered this in blitz a few times and it is difficult to play against. The comp doesn't find existing theory very convincing. I'm only showing a slight plus for white. However, it's tricky for a human to play as white, so black has compensation in that regard. Any thoughts? I thought there was a line recommended by bologan on his french DVD for chessbase, but i no longer have access to it.

Negi it.

I'm just gonna pretend that's an expression.

Have a nice day.

Hey All,
