Rid O' Gambit, or Change O' Gambit?

Feb 11, 2018, 5:31 PM 0

Like playing the Bird, 1.f4? So do I. Occasionally an opponent will try the ultra theoretically sharp From's Gambit, 1...e5. As when facing the Scandinavian Defense, I like to move just one pawn and change it into something else. With 2.e4!, it is no longer a From's Gambit but is now a King's Gambit which is a totally different system. Hardly anyone knows King's Gambit anymore, although it is actually quite sound. Learn it and you will rule the board!
