Hello, Stacia here!  I wanted to share an interesting 15/10 game I played on chess.com.  This game features a wild line of the King's Gambit Accepted affectionately referred to as "The Wild Cunningham", but also know as the Bertin Gambit.  White adopts a completely ridiculous setup with a sacrificing 3 pawns and King Safety for super quick development and pressure on the notorious f7 square.  Black is fine in these lines, but must walk a dangerous path with no missteps.  Not always so easy!  

Full analysis in the video.  

I hope you enjoyed and learned something with me!
