Hi everyone, today I'm going to show you how to punish your opponent when he plays the Latvian Gambit.

A little history:

The Latvian Gambit (or Greco Counter gambit) was studied by Gioachino Greco during the 17th century, It is an old opening which was called "possibly the worst opening ever" by FM Dennis Monokroussos.

Without further ado lets get started:

The analysis of this position (starting at Nxe5) was made without the help of a computer, I did it on my own. So I may have missed something. If so, please tell me in the comments. 

I really hope you enjoyed this blog, if you did, please leave a nice comment below and consider following me (I accept all friend requests).

If ever you didn't like it, could you please leave a comment to tell me what to improve?

Anyways  thanks a lot for your time!
