MFO #2 King's Gambit


A brief history:

The King's Gambit is the opening that starts out 1. E4 E5 2. F4. It was the most popular opening during the romance era and is still (although seldom) used at the highest levels of chess. The King's Gambit is one of my favorite openings because it is simply fun to play due to the fast sharp play and the unpredictability of it. Here are some famous games using the King's Gambit.
