Have you heard of him? John Tracy? We have not! But we still have the games, so today it’s John Tracy Gambit day. And what a gambit it is… Sacrificing a pawn without seemingly any counterplay – is that even possible?!
Two games show that, in fact, this line is surely playable, and even leads to interesting positions for White! In game 1 we have Robert James Fischer showing us how cool that opening can be. Playing against 54 players he probably decided to wing this one and sac a pawn. Little did he know about the three guys standing behind this one chess board where he produced the John Tracy Gambit, or so the story goes…
Game 2 is a recent game, where two Italian Daniels show how cool this line is. One small mistake of Black, and suddenly White is in the driver’s seat! White never let’s go and gets a deserved win!
