This opening was the most popular opening in the 1800s. White offers a pawn in exchange for rapid development. It's rarely seen now at the master level; according to Keene it's been found that Black can obtain a reasonable position (giving nothing for White's pawn).

  1. e4 e5  2. f4

A natural following move is "exf4" accepting the gambit. [King's Gambit]
