    I think that what you meant to say was 1-0 next move, not 10 next move. And the next move which leads to a 1-0 game is obviously dxe5. Play might continue 3... resigns and promises to never play that opening again.

    3.dxe5 d6 4.exd6 Bxd6 looks pretty weird but interesting. Nf6, castles, but the f-pawn looks awkward as anything. That's just off the top of my head.

    Your basically giving away a pawn to be white. When your playing a sacrifice like this when you don't get a whole lot of time for the pawn you really have to have some concrete ideas behind the sacrifice.

    As a general rule of thumb you can say that a pawn is worth around three tempi. And when you play a sacrifice when you don't get three tempi for the pawn you really need some concrete ideas. Example:

     

     

    But if we look at this gambit:

    Interesting doesn't mean good! An awkward f-pawn that keeps the LSB from being very good without some work isn't a favorite, while the DSB can't quite move just yet. Everything works in bullet, though. Everything. :(
