Hey friends, I was wondering if you wud suggest me how I could bombard someone using Kings Gambit. Always suppose that I am declining the gambit...
Thanks in advance!!!
Hi, are you talking about as white or black? if black, these lines are especially deadly.
here is a good article on this defence
another good one is the falkbeer counter gambit
If you are really interested in the KGA, join the group the king's gambit players and look at the vote chess matches. There is always a good KG match going on. Hope that helps!
"Hi, are you talking about as white or black? if black, these lines are especially deadly."
i think king gambit no longer praticed this day...
It's pretty easy, black gives up a pawn and opens his kingside. If you are a passive player, just trade pieces and go to the endgame and win with your pawn advantage. If you are an aggerssive player, just attack black's exposed kingside, and win in 20 moves.
doesnt exactly work that way, gavinator, when I am done with my game vs. what up I will show you why, and I am not engineing him, and I will not claim that the opening is great, only playable, I will show why I played what I did, my thoughts durring the game, and why I think he played the moves he did.
"In my opinion, the King's Gambit is busted. It loses by force."
Best way as Black is to accept the gambit and play aggresively. In Justin's first example, Black tries to drive away the Knight with his pawns and attack with Qh4+, which ruins White's Kingside.
I play Bc4 plus Fischer didn't believe that statemend, as he played it later in his carrer, also Actions Speak louder than words.
Jetfighter, i believe i am currently busting the KG against you right now.
If you want to know how to blast out the kings gambit check out jetfighter and I's 20 move game.
The game where you hung a rook on move 18 that he inexplicably ignored?
umm... no i would have gotten his right back and more, i admit that he could have made it last longer but i was clearly winning.
for a good time I had an advantage, I just screwed it up by overlooking a mate in two because I needed the Bishop out of the way
You played very actively and I kept missevaluating a winning move, oh well, another lesson.
you were no where near clearly winning Qd3 gives me a minor, but you are right about the rook not being free lol
The King's Gambit isn't refuted, as far as I know. Here's a great game Boris Spassky vs Bronstein
here is what happens if I took the rook
modern scandinavian variation gives black easy equality
Amazingly, 21.Qe1 is almost the only thing you can do that loses for you outright.
