9. h3? Bc5+!
Nf3 threatened immediate mate on h2.
well 9 h3 Bc5+ 10 d4 Bxd4+ 11 Nxd4 Nxd4 12 hxg4
hog on the seventh
Very nicely played for a 1200+ player! I can see your skill is better then the rating shows at the moment. Your opponent underestimated you to much and it cost him the game. That last brilliant move i bet he didn't even check for because of rating.
He played the king gambit not if that the correct opening . He is so far behind in development all I see is total destruction . With open f file , I could be wrong
It is not the kings gambit. Kings gambit is -> 1.e4..e5 2.f4
Nice one! ..Nf3 sure is a lovely way to finish the game.
Why did black resign (per annotation in game)? I assume error in annotation?
lol. well spotted. perhaps white sent black a couple of hundred dollars to resign?
avoids the loss of an exchange but instead an inactive pawn
Well, he said he was gonna give em to my Visa account...
I wholeheartedly approve of his choice of openings - and wonder how you knew about From's Gambit! That's just good daredevil chess.
I don't know if 5. d3 will catch on, but 5. d4 is normal.
