Is King's Gambit good for total beginners?

    I play the King's Gambit because I believe I am not smart enough to handle the Italian, Petroff, or the Ruy Lopez.

    I used to play the scotch before I discover KG but after that I never turned back. KG teaches you to control the centre, and the importance of initiative (given that you sac a pawn already). It also teaches the importance of the f2 and f7 squares. It is a great opening to study.
