The Sokolsky Gambit
Compiled by e4 resigns
--*--

The Sokolsky Gambit comes from the move order 1. b4!? e5 2. Bb2 f6 3. e4!?

Here black usually accepts the sacrifice with 3... Bxb4, but there are other tries for Black. It is an interesting opening, and should lead to fun play for both sides.

The main games in this collection focus on 1. b4 e5 2. Bb2 f6 3. e4 Bxb4 4. Bc4.

Below are links discussing the gambit.
