Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-27-04  Vischer: At first I thought that black had just fallen into a trap, but it's 1 pawn for the exchange, and a strong fianchettoed bishop, so I think this is playable at my level. When I feel like playing aggressively I'll play this as black; it's not so bad. By the way, when I say <my level> I mean like 1500 & less.
Feb-06-08  prinsallan: Black is down an entire point after 5. Qxa8.
Also, the King is hard to get to safety for Black since no minor piece is developed on the Kingside.

If you watch the sequence in this miniature closely you will discover that Black loses since he never get the King into a safe spot. I wouldn't reccommend this to a low rated player. And with that I mean either side of it. The Grob is very difficult to play and to master it requires high attacking skill and well developed sence of "right and wrong", both as Black and White. Ive played this opening for several years now, and I only scraped a little off the top. My rating is appx 1900 when I write this.

Best Regards

You have no idea what you are yapping about. The rook sacrifice benefits black. It is white who has trouble after 6...e5!

Just look at black's development.

If you are a weaker player, you are bound to win after 6...e5!
