The Blackburne Shilling Gambit
I'm very excited because of a recent victory in a game against a friend. He likes to play the Italian Opening (ECO: C50) and has beaten me with it several times. Keep in mind he's a much better player than myself, BUT... I mated in 7 today! After being beaten by him so many times I decided to do some research. I came across an article about the Blackburne Shilling Gambit, supposedly named after Joseph Henry Blackburne (1841-1924) who would make money by playing amateurs for one shilling. This gambit would never work on a master, but amateurs fall for it quite often.
