Ok lets get this going, 1. e4
and good luck to my opponent
good luck friend
I suggest we comment our moves in normal typ, not a confusing diagram, and follow it on our own boards
and every nowand then post a diagram
make the text a different color so its distinguishable from analysis
Ok then, I have always been a KG fan, plus it is absolutely fun, so yeah
I recomend 2.Nf6 for black, i've been flirting with the idea and it's pretty interesting.
I always counter the King's Gambit with 2...exf 3.Nf3 d5. Although I suspect jetfighter will play his Bishop Gambit instead 3.Bc4!
I've never really heard of 2...Nf6, what are the ideas there Samsch?
Here is my defense to the KG, which is totally fun - the Adelaide CounterGambit!
2...Nf6 is a Nimzo-style counter.
1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Kf2
Some great advice... I'm not sure. I got a recent win this exf Nf3 g5, but ive also had some sucess with the falkbeer. I honestly never face this opening, and I never studied it much. So, I'll just go with 2...exf4
P.S. can we use computers? I dont want to
No, I honestly hate computers, I don't have an engine, and even if I did I would not use it.
My two thoughts are either Bishop's Gambit or a tounge in cheek Tartakower Gambit
3 be2, obviously.
that's the Tartakower Gambit
big debates. This shall be interesting
engines can be learning tools, I dont agree with using them to play, but for post game analysis and training and stuff they are great
Umm, will give some thought to this one, anyone else have ideas, not that I need them just want to hear what other thoughts are
I have one: Ke7 ;)
well I think it is safe to make my decision now,
I would move 3...Qh4+
Tartakower Gambit might not be bad. Not as ambitious, but it has some good points! And, you are in less theory water.
