these are good:
Well, if the queen's gambit leads to a lost position, as you claim, then why is it so popular, even at the highest level of chess?
He is a beginner, and so are you. I think you have some kind of superiority complex.
Nope, just a compelling desire to troll.
This is not the place to fight! This is the place to answer my question!
What you will find are some trolls here. I am sure there are better or respectful chess forums out there. Your question is a good one. Follow basic opening principles. http://www.chess.com/article/view/the-principles-of-the-opening Also look up the Sicilian or Ruy Lopez to get some ideas.
Thank you, friend.
Thank you for your comments!
The answer is simple & it doesn't require a forum for a member who has been active here for nearly an year. Being that said, his question ain't a good one.
Ave Comrades !
It should be Queen's Pawn's Gambit !
If i may point out , then "Gambit" is not sacrificing anything but sacrificing pawns only.
so macer75, you were wrong and be ashamed of what you did and delete your account !
Apparently you've never heard about Muzio and Allgaier
I was referring to this. Both Muzio Gambit and Allgaier Gambit (both of which are variations of King's Gambit) gambit a knight for an attack against the Black king.
Ave Comrade !
ajmeroski , they start from pawn sacrifice and that is why it is known has gambit !!
by the way , a knight is not sacrificed in Allgaier gambit.
