My fist ever King's Gambit game


Let me stress that I know no theory at all concerning the King's Gambit, I just played pretty much on instinct. And, mistakes from my opponent aside, do you think I did well (in the opening I mean)?


I just saw I spelled the title wrong. Sorry for that.


You manage the opening better than I do!

I've been forced into it myself numerous times, but I could never figure out how to play it. So I lost every time.


Did you see Move 24. Qd8#


I think 5. b3 is a mistake. why not e5 then ...5 fxe  6. dxe and you can capture with your black bishop.
