 Now I need to know which oil is best. Penz or Valvoline?

Very interesting question but the answer is Yes, It is. If black accepts, it perfectly fits in the definition of a Gambit.

Richard Reti says it is not a true gambit. Why should I go with your opinion over his published work?

Of course it is Gambit. White does not have to take pawn back and in attempt to protect pawn black may extend himself on queenside. This is good for white.

To Igor every move is gambit! Even post is gambit! Na Zdorovie!

I used Forumfish to analyze what was going to be said early on in this thread and it perfectly predicted the arguments that would be made. Forums are dead. It did make one mistake: it suggest that on move #26 sausage would be mentioned.

Really it should not be a gambit!. It is like 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 which is not a gambit either.

My response to Igor was unpredictable, therefore your statement is proven false.
