In this video, IM Andrey Ostrovskiy brings to you the Wing Gambit in the Sicilian Defense. The Wing Gambit starts with the moves:

1.e4 c5 2.b4

White is offering a sacrifice to get rid of black’s c5-pawn in order to occupy the center with his own pawns. At the same time, white is trying to open up the position on the queen side to activate his minor pieces as fast as possible. The Silician Wing Gambit is in nowadays a bit underrated and it is maybe not the best opening but it is a good way to get your opponent out of the comfort zone.

  1. It was helpful, thank you very much! (But the video didnt cover the best line for black, 3…e5.)

  2. Great video. I love your live streams on twitch, please keep doing them, they’re very helpful. Just a suggestion, but maybe you should upload them on YouTube? Maybe if you don’t want to do it on this account but at least on another account for the Twitch streams. Thanks!

  3. Sir plz make video on nizmo indian king defence

  4. at 5:07 Nxe4 right? because if Rxe4 Bxh2+ wins queen black remains pawn ahead

  5. Bobby Fischer won a game against Boris Spassky employing the Wing Gambit in 1992. So in certain specific ocasions, it may be useful at the Grand Master level.

  6. Great explanation…. Keep going and help us with more such gambits 👌👌👌👌💪👍👍👍

  7. Great Video, I like the wing gambit, F. Marshall used it a lot, do you think this could be dangerous for Black at club level?

  8. I need a translate for this video but definitely one of the greatest. I'll try to watch it again and again until I get it

  9. I think one of the games was played by Dubov , awesome content!

  10. after cxb4, white can also play d4 instead of a3
