Oh yesh, I think so!
Originally posted by shorbockI dont think that gambit players would like position after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.Nxe5 Nxe5 5.d4 Nc6 6.d5 Ne5 7.f4 Ng6 8.e5 Bb4! when black gives back extra piece for some positional advantage.
And did you read my comment on your thread about the danish?
You should try the halloween gambit one day, i know you'll like it !
Originally posted by shorbockI play King's Knight's Gambit & have Johansson's King's Gambit for the Creative Aggressor (the bright yellow one bottom right) & Gallagher's Winning with the King's Gambit is fairly old but covers most of the lines that Johansson's book ignores & has a good reputation.

Excellent books except on king's gambit : you MUST buy thomas johanson's book, much much better than mac donald's (don't know gallagher's book)
That is : if you don't change for the danish!
The trouble with the KG? less surprise effect, most players have a sound defence to it ready...

Never mind all these half-baked coward gambits.
Play the [b]Jerome Gambit
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+ Kxf7 5.Nxe5+
Now there is an opening with some bite.[/b]

...Then you can bring your game kicking and screaming into the 19th Century.
Originally posted by SquelchbelchBut not meant as such (the back-handed bit), though I do reserve the right to use that phrase in a back handed way in future! Seriously though, get the book. As repertoire books go it's inspiring.
