The Fajarowicz Gambit, 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e5 3 dxe5 Ne4!? is ideal for all those who like an aggressive approach to adopt. Black's opening is little-known, especially at club level and will cause the opponent headaches as he tries to avoid all the vicious traps that Black can set.
The line suffers from a dubious reputation, but as FIDE Senior Trainer and IM Andrew Martin shows, that is not justified at all. If Black shows common sense and a knowledge of which variations to choose, then he may well get a very good or even winning position right out of the opening.
The unorthodox Fajarowicz Gambit is perfect for all those who enjoy chess and wish to explore the richness of our noble game.
Andrew Martin is an International Master and FIDE Senior Trainer. Over the last 25 years he has recorded perhaps more DVD and video footage on chess than anyone else in the world
