Lev Zilbermints once again shows how bold gambit play leads to exciting blitz chess. The Bird's Opening often sees White plan for a slow build up. Lev Zilbermints uses his g-pawn to force White into fast action that allows Black attacking threats against the Nf3 and the White monarch.
Some time ago I wrote on the Hobbs Gambit with 1.f4 g5!? Here Black chooses a delayed Hobbs with 1...h6 and 2...g5. This game illustrates just how a tactical fight gives both sides chances in rapid play, and how quickly the advantage can change sides. Lev Zilbermints keeps throwing punches and pulls off a crushing victory.
