Bobby Fischer exclaimed that the King's gambit was busted yet he was both defeated by it and played it.
Nothing shown by fischer proved his theory.
One mistake in the King's Gambit for the opponent spells mate.
It's great for attacking.
King's Gambit is already busted.
-Robert James "Bobby" Fischer
Sry many reccomend to beat the gambit, it's better to accept it
gambits are fun
A better move is Bc4 after the black accepts the gambit Nf3 can be played later.
Not to be a jerk, qwert, but I think you are wrong on number 1. Always accept gambits, Then defend like hell for a bit. If the initial attack of the gambiteer is warded off, your static advantage could easily prevail.
A few things to know about gambits:
1:NEVER accept, especially on the King's gambit. What makes playing the King's gambit dangerous is that if black waits a few moves THEN assaults the pawns, White cracks open like an egg.
2: If your opponent does not accept, DEFEND the gambit pawns. It only works earlier, not later.
3: If you accept, quickly block yourself off and develop as soon as possible.
4:If your opponent accepts, isolate the pawn, you can take it later, use the positional advanage to develop and attack.
This defense is not a defense, more like suicide.
