Need a new weapon against 1.e4 e5?
Are you like me, fed up with playing against the Ruy Lopez? It seems to me that it takes 30 moves to get out of the opening. Therefore, I always try and avoid it, recently I stumbled across the Goering Gambit with white. It begins like a Scotch game but after 1. e4 e5, 2. Nf3 Nc6, 3. d4 exd4 4. c3 starts the gambit off. For those who really love attacking chess after 4...dxc3 5. Bc4 cxb2 6. Bxb2 white has gambitted 2 pawns but has lots of open lines and a big lead in development. I thought I would use a couple of games to illustrate the attacking potential of this Gambit.
