    Interesting game I don't play the KG but I would have considered 3. Bc4 so that it could be a true KG gambit style.

    I don't know why, but I am waaayy waaayy weaker at blitz than I am regular chess. It's weird, tactics and attacking are probably what my "natural strength" is in chess, but I seriously blow at 5 minute chess. I either waste too much time with my plans, or I play quick and blunder.

    I hate it.




    Interesting game though.

    @ Enrico20: are you saying that Moprhy, Steinitz,Rubinstein, Spassky, or even Shirov don't play in the true Kings Gambit style with their 3.Nf3 games?

    Sorry I meant 4. Bc4 not 3. Bc4 I was giving the move mentally as he played 4. h4

    Just have at it. You can practise your favorite openings and see how people react under pressure. Don't play blitz all the time but mix it up with slower games as well.
