In this ‘Foxy’ promotion DVD IM Martin examines The Albin Counter-Gambit and calls it “A Gambit that White must accept if it is to try and get any sort of advantage at all”.

The famous Albin Trap is shown and White gets punished by Black’s rapid activity. In section 2 IM Martin talks about 5.a3 and Black’s 5…f6 Gambit is the pushed solution; Black’s activity becomes worthy of the sacrificed Pawn and with White lagging behind in King Side development the virtues of The Gambit in conjunction with ‘The Bishop Pair’ come through to leave Black with the superior Pre-Ending followed by the White resignation.
