Grob counter Gambit

    On an old online chess server, I once convinced a computer-player operator to let me play the black side of "grob counter gambit". This new opening, I explained to him was very tactical and there was little theory on it. He didn't see it in the computer's opening book and agreed to add it.

    Without further ado, here is the opening with the computer playing White

    1. f4 e5

    2. g4

    Please analyze.

    Way too difficult. Only pfren can untangle all the mind-blowing complications.

    It is very tactical, indeed.

    obviously 2... g5!! is the answer

    The positional response is one line, certainly.

    I have had Fritz analyzing it uniterrupted for the past 3.5 years. I am hoping it comes to a conclusion soon.

    This is a most unusual opening... I love black's counter-gambit BTW.

    That is the most crazy game I have seen in a while! It must have taken forever to analyze all of that...

    I usually play 2... Qh4#. But there was once I accepted a draw (with white), after 2: g4!?

    That is a mistake, asking for a draw... You are clearly better as you have much more space on the kingside to attack.

    Isn't this a sub variation of the bongcloud?

    White's 2.g4 is a blunder, not because of 2...Qh4#, which is annoying, but ultimately of no real consequence, but because black can simply win a pawn with 2...exf4!  With careful play, black should be able to maneuver into a won ending in about fifty or sixty moves.
