    David,

    Love the Series on the KGA and the KGD.  I started playing the Kings Gambit opening this month and noticed the Kings Gambit Declined response from black seems to stifle me.  The c3 move to to counter blacks Bb5 will really improve my play. As well as a seeing couple of variations and tactics in the series.  

    Thank you for sharing these ideas and all the others in this entire series.  There a alot of traps in this opening too.  Its Always fun to let someone sack my Queen and then checkmate them.  LOL

    P.S. I noticed the Kings Gambit gives the sicilian defense a very good run for its money.  

     

    Thanks Again!

    hey jbord, Nd5 is a plausible move. if you scrolled down the comments you'd see it already discussed a little between FutureNinja and myself.

    i should mention in the variation you gave after Qf2 g3 the white queen is hanging, so Rf1 is not a good follow-up.

    At 9:55 it seems like a better move than Rf1 is Kd5.  It completely prevents white from trading (or else ...Bxf6 2. Nxf6+, forking the queen, rook, and king).  After 2...Bh6 3. Qf2 g3 4. Rf1 white looks pretty good.

    @ 9:57 why didnt white castle, he would get his king to safety AND defend the bishop

    I like playing Bc4 after the gambit is accepted. I've heard it is stronger opening than Nf3 because Nf3 can lead to the Fischer Defence. I just don't know why Bc4 is a stronger opening, however. I just know that it's harder to win when Fischer Defence is played.

    yes, jesseZ, the third of my videos "applying principles in the king's gambit" uses the Cunningham. that is, i'm pretty sure, the only video on chess.com featuring the Cunningham. hope you like it too!

    I am a serious King's Gambit player and still learned a thing or two. Thanks David P.!

    Wow, I am very impressed.  As a new member, i realize now that the following chessism holds a lot of truth, not sure how to say it but it goes something like this;  You can learn more in an hour with a professional than you can in years of untoutored trial and error.   Thanks David, I will be sure to look for more of your videos so I can learn more.   I always play the kings gambit when I can, and am curious to know if there are videos on the cunningham defense, when black plays this against me I tend to struggle.

    I did watch all those videos!  Thank you!   I was wondering if the "principles" were opening principles or some other topic like that.  

    Now I understand....  Thanks for the advice on how to look up videos!
