Gambits Galore - Part 1

Gambits Galore - Part 1

May 30, 2014, 7:52 PM 0

We're going on a king hunt. We're not scared.

Welcome to my first blog post! This series of posts will be focused on showing my most attacking games from some of the most aggressive gambits out there which will mostly include games from the openings: From Gambit, Budapest Gambit, Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, Blackmar's Second Gambit and Staunton Gambit. These are usually going to be quite short games, don't expect any endgame displays. All of todays entries games were played on chess.com in blitz time controls and the first two being played 5/6 months ago, when I was 200 points lower than what I am now. Parts will be released as I aquire games to post.

The first game I'll be showcasing is from a Blackmar's Second gambit game which derrives from the Dutch Defense.

Next is from my personal favourite opening, the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. It showcases a relatively well known mating pattern that really is quite beautiful.

 For my last game, and most recent (and by that I mean, I played it about an hour ago), I'd like to showcase a very short game in the Bird opening: From Gambit.

Thanks for reading. I hope you all enjoyed these blitz games.
