The point of this post is to diminish some of the the "fear factor" for black in the King's Gambit. If you read through this post through and memorize the lines that I give, you will rarely find yourself worse off in the King's Gambit. However, even if you don't have the time to do a deep analytical study of the King's Gambit, (or do, but choose to spend it otherwise) it is still a humorous read. Also if you would like to learn about other lines in the King's Gambit, feel free pull out your favorite opening tome, and learn it that way. Anyway, on to the post.
The King's Gambit is, as you may already know, a sharp, attacking line where white attempts to smash black quickly with his/her minor pieces. Black will usually just try to dodge the falling tactical bombs long enough to strike back in a pawn up endgame. Simply said, the King's Gambit is for those lucky players who can get a high from tossing their pieces down the board in an unsound king attack. Here is the theory.
