1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nf3 Ulysses Gambit
1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Be3 Mieses Gambit

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nf3 Persus Gambit (still experimental)
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Be3 Alapin Diemer Gambit
And there are probably more gambit lines that I do play in the King pawn openings.

With 1.d4 I play:

1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Blackmar-Diemer Gambit
1.d4 Nf6 2.g4   Gibbins-Weidenhagen Gambit
1.d4 Nf6 2.e4   Omega Gambit
1.d4 e6 2.e4 d5 3.c4  Diemer-Duhm Gambit
1.d4 c6 2.e4 d5 3.c4 Diemer-Duhm Gambit (Caro Kann Variation)
1.d4 f5 2.e4 Staunton Gambit
1.d4 f5 2.g5 Lisbon Gambit
1.d4 g6 2.h4 (i like to play the h pawn all the way up to h6 to disrupt Blacks development) if Black plays h5 then his pawn structure is weakened because
i can sac on either the f7 or g6 pawns in a kingside attack.

There may be more lines that I do play, but that is all for now.

With 1.c4 I play:

1.c4 c5 2.d4 cxd4 3.e3 Liedmann Gambit
1.c4 e5 2.e3 Nf6 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 and I also sac the e and d pawns but continue
     developing my minor pieces. Kahiko-Hula Gambit
1.c4 g6 2.h4   h4 pawn thrust
1.c4 f4 2.e4 Hickman Gambit

With 1.Nc3 I play:

1.Nc3 e5 2.f4 Colorado Gambit
1.Nc3 e5 2.e3 Nf6 3.f4 exf4 4.Nf3 Keoni-HIva Gambit by transposition

With 1.f4 I play:

1.f4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 Nc3 Williams Gambit
1.f4 Nf6 2.e4 Omega Willaims Gambit
1.f4 e5 2.Nf3 Hyena Gambit (Black can chase the White N with 2...e4 which
   is interesting)

This is incredibly kind of you to share this opening information with us. I am new to gambit gang but it hasn't taken long to see you are a rare teacher indeed !!

Mezmer

Thanks for posting Darth!

Are you planning to post your repertoire for black as well?

Another fun one to play that I've had good luck with is the Sturm Gambit (1. f4 d5 2. c4) - I'd be happy to discuss this one with you if you're interested.

DarthMusashi

The Sturm Gambit looks like an interesting Gambit because I also play the Birds
Opening.

Other chess openings not posted:

1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.b3 Regina-Nu Gambit - article at Chessville
1.e4 f5 2.exf5 Duras Gambit - planning to write a future article at
Chessville  - my chess student Fred plays the Fred line which goes
1.e4 f5 2.exf5 Kf7 which is a reverse Tumbleweed. i play 2...Nf6
transposing into a Franco-Hiva Gambit.
1.f3 and Kf2 - I took down a player with a higher rating - he tried
to attack me but fumbled the ball on the one yard line. In that
game I played all my pawns to the 3rd rank.
Hippopatamus - black side - pawns on b6, d6, e6, g6 , Bishops on
b7 & g7 , N's at d7 & e7. Still experimenting with this opening. Can
be played against 1.e4 or 1.d4 or any other White opening. GM Pavel
Blatny plays this opening, including Boris Spassky in his world championship
match with Petrosian. He had 2 draws with the Hippo.

Thanks I downloaded the 6 games on the Sturm Gambit. Will try to compile a
Sturm Gambit chess database 1.f4 d5 2.c4 from my 50 million game chess
database.

where can i find information about continuatitions of these gambits..Great postings keep it up

GUILLOTINE

Regard to 1.e4 gambits have you played the ryder gambit?

DarthMusashi

Most of these gambits are posted as articles at Chessville. See link below.
It is in my column called "The Search for Dragons & Mythical Chess Openings".

http://www.chessville.com/UCO/CN/index.htm

There are other gambits posted at the Yahoo Unorthodox Chess Openings
Newsgroup such as the Gibbins-Weidenhagen Gambit 1.d4 Nf6 2.g4
and the Halasz Gambit 1.e4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.f4. You would have to join
this newsgroup and look at the files section and past messages.

Not sure If I had played the Ryder Gambit. Is that a variation of the Blackmar
Diemer Gambit? What are the moves to this opening?

Question: 2 pawn gambit? How do you react to 3. exf5? I have put quite a bit analysis in my blog "The New Play Against Kings Gambit!" Where I have played 3. ... g6. I hope you have time to tell what you think.
