 Post subject: Kings Gambit.
PostPosted: Tue Jul 11, 2006 9:29 pm 
I began trying to vary with the Kings gambit, and usually if it is accepted i develop my King knight. I was wondering, what is a sound "answer" to 2...d5?. it allways makes me wonder... another thing, what is the general idea (not variations, but rather theme) of continuing after KGD?

This is the Falkbeer Countergambit.
The sound reply is to accept the pawn by 3.exd5

The general idea for White is to develop the pieces as quickly as possible and prevent that Black takes advantage of our weakness on the kingside.

Most of the time White will be unable to hold the pawn like in
3...e4 4.d3 Nf6 5.dxe4 Nxe4 6.Nf3 Bc5 7.Qe2 Bf5 8.Nc3 Qe7 9.Be3 Bxe3 10.Qxe3 Nxc3 11.Qxe7+ Kxe7 12.bxc3 Be4 13.Ng5 Bxd5 14.O-O-O Be6
but I still prefer to play the White pieces.

Hi friend:
In Falkbeer counter-gambit, black sacrifices a pawn, just to prevent an important move: 3.Nf3
In example: 1.e4-e5; 2.f4-d5; 3.exd5 (3.fxe5??-Qh4 and black wins),
3...e4! and, in this moment, white can't play Nf3.
Black lost a central pawn (d5), but white have problems in the kingside.
White's plan is press to e4 pawn: for example, d3!-Nbd2!.
I give you games onlines (NO variations) in
and see (or download them) how white is pressing to the e4 pawn.

I use 100% Kings Gambit opening when I face a amateur/level player

But I need to tell you that I dont recommend you playing Kings Gambit unless you study the lines very well

Also, don-t take the pawn if someone use Kings Gambit against you, unless you know what you are doing
