Polish Opening-Wolfert's Gambit

1.b4 e5

2.Bb2 c5

In the Wolfert’s gambit, white creates an active play in the queenside and black creates a pawn sacrifice on e5. If e5 pawn is captured then activity is what black will be having as a compensation. If you would want an example of how the gambit can lead to in a game.

Unlike the Bugayev attack, Wolfert’s gambit involves black sacrificing the pawns for activity and a lead in development. White has the flexibility to either allow black to get a lead in development or give away the majority pawns on the queen side over the majority present at the center. This opening gives you the flexibility to implement such a thought in to the game.
