I wonder if this is a variation...
5...g2+ wins for Black.
It's not exactly a win, but it is winning.
It's as good as a win.......
You're joking with 7...Qd8, right? You didn't really miss 7...Qxe4+.......
I believe 4.Kf1 is the 'theoretically' better, or maybe best move. However, a lot of players dislike giving up castling, so they try the inferior 4.g3. But if you're playing the KG, though, you shouldn't plan on castling anyway......
i know, just asking if g3 is ok.
The main reason of playing Bc4 is to attract the opponent to seeing Qh4+. And then Kf1. Just asking if g3 was ok against Qh4 because white will be much better if g3 can be played.
This line is a forced loss. Black can always play g2 and aim for promotion.
I know I already said that!
Great game! Loved it!!!
Oh never mind, White comes out a piece ahead.
(No not that Pelikan, because White's queen is hanging too.)
Was that the variation you were thinking about
No, it was the wide open one when white's h pawn went to h4, with an eventual mate by the white queen at, d8, I believe. a great wide open game, with chances for both, but black just couldn't catch up with white's rapid developmen, even though he had quite an attack going himself. Never saw that variation before, and given the chance, I will try it. Love the King's gambit, and after watching that game, will do a little experimentation, myself...
Nakamura played the king's gambit quite recently, and Carlsen too a few years ago.
Interesting, didn't think it was still played at that level...
