More spicy openings: Goering Gambit

There are many gambits that have almost disappeared from play because theoreticians have found a way to equalize but not refute them. The Goering gambit is one such gambit.

Authorities consider an early advance of the deep on to be a complete remedy for this opening up positions that are reached are not necessarily quiet and boring. The game below shows that even at a high level there can be plenty of fireworks. So this is another gambit that can be studied for use as an occasional weapon. It is rare enough that most players will not be well prepared for it on the black side.
