The Kings Gambit is a cheeky attempt by white to grab immediate attacking options. Black counters with d5 to create his own initiative.

A dynamic game for those that love crushing victories and don't mind the odd annihilation.

Check out Valery Lilov's excellent video on the subject of black's response.
