    As far as I know the Greco Gambit in the Bishop's Opening 1. e4 e5 2. Bc4 Nf6 3. f4!? was only ever played once by Greco: in the above game. Does anyone know of any other games played with it or a refutation of the opening?

    something tells me that if the latvian is hard to prove, this one will be a hard nut to solve.
