This is one af the most classical openings.White offer a safe gambit to start the battle to remove Black's central presence. The play varies greatly from wild,obscure gambit play to sedate minority attacks.

Black has a number of responses. The CHIGORIN (2...Nc6)is an anarchick attempt to obtain piece play.The assesment is volatile, but it is curently looking playable for black.The ALBIN COUNTER GAMBIT (2...e5) is a sharp but an convincing attempt to seize the initiative.
