    Pretty much what I said but there were blunders on both sides, wondered what each one of us could have done better?

    I haven't had much experience with the King's Gambit. The first time it came up on RHP I had been looking at "My 60 Memorable Games" by Bobby Fischer. The 18th game had Fischer playing Black against Spassky in a King's Gambit opening. After Fischer's third move, he writes the following:

    This loss spurred me to look for a "refutation" of the King's Gambit, which I published in the American Chess Quarterly, Vol. 1 (1961), No. 1. The right move is 3...P-Q3!

    This is now known as the Fischer Defense and is what your opponent played and what I played in the 34th game I finished on RHP, which I won. It is GameId 8325850. Game 8325850 However, my opponent played 4.Bc4 instead of your 4.d4 and we do not want Black to win anyway, since you are playing White.

    I think you mean 16 Q e2 which would have been better since it saves the rook but the knight gets away at b6.

    Help in Analyzing this game? It was drawn.

    Question: Where is the link to this game?
    So many mistakes, and nothing constructive.

    After 31. Kc2-b3..
    31.. Re2-e1 is the finishing touch. Since 32. Kc2 is reputed by 32..Bxc3; 33. Ra2 Bxb4 is totally
    hopeless for White. 2 pawns down plus Rook vs. Knight fight.

    No. He means 15.Qe2 then if 15...Re8 16.bxa5 or if 15...Nc4 16.Qxc4

    Also 17.Qe2 as you know was a big mistake. Either 17.Be2 or Kf2 is better.

    But the Player on the White side ( Who Posted this Game ) has 292 Points more than
    the Black Side. So obviously, Black was inferior here.
    You don't Post an embarrassing game like this? It don't help the viewer at all.

    But that depends on white making the Ka3 move, which they didnt do because they knew it would have put the in a losing position. Hence the peek-a-boo behind the pawn.

    w - Ka2-a3???
