    I made up the name, if you were wondering. It goes 1. e4 e5 2. Bc4 Nc6 3. d3 Bc5 4. f4

     

    I've looked everywhere I can and can't any game that uses this opening, which is a bit odd, since I think it's a very interesting line. I used it in a few games, with pretty good results. The key is to attack the kingside, and not stop. Here is a game in which a mouse slip cost me my queen, and the attack still went through.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Thoughts??? I have another game I can show if anyone wants.

    It's been played in Hoogeboom-Benning, Netherlands 1996 and Vlassov-Pimenta, France 1996.  Probably in other games as well.

    Good combination in the end. But, I must say that Black played some really bad moves along the way...

    Good game. But why did you call it "King's Bishop Gambit"? I didn't see any pawn sacrifice in the beginning...

     It looks like a combination of the Bishop's Opening and the King's Gambit Declined.

    ccarey99,

    Sorry, but this is already the name of an opening:

     1. e4 e5  2. f4 exf4  3. Bc4

     

    Your game is just a line of the Bishop's opening. The moves f4, c4, f5, and c5 are played in many games in an attempt to remove a central presence, in just the way you did. It is not a gambit until you sacrifice the pawn. You just offered a pawn trade.

    In the 90's, the Polgars made somewhat of a fad out of the King's Bishop's Gambit. This is still a popular line at club level.

    Wouldn't the move order you listed make it a variation of the King's Gambit? And I wasn't trying to invent a new opening, I just didn't know what to call it. Smile

    Would´nt this move weaken the kings position if one castled on the kingside?
