My fist ever King's Gambit game

Jacco_van_Eijk

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.

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