    ...though I had to sac a Bishop, Knight and Rook to prove it.

    Elsewhere on here I advocated playing the Jerome Gambit.
    I practise what I preach in this very good natured four minute game.

    [Event "RHP Blitz rated"]
    [Site "www.redhotpawn.com"]
    [Date "2008.6.18"]
    [Round "?"]
    [White "greenpawn34"]
    [Black "Homedepotov"]
    [Result "1/2-1/2"]

    Good fun - it's what the chess pieces were designed for.

    Thank you Homedepotov for the compliment on my Rook sac.

    I've not looked at it yet - I bet some wise guy is going to
    show me a forced win when I took the perpetch.

    Craziest draw I ever saw! Thanks for it.

    Awesome!

    THIS is why so many of us "average" players push pawns.

    Let me un-officially welcome you to the "Jerome Gemeinde"! Your game will forever serve as a passport.

    probably due to time constraint but black could've played much better i thought

    if this is some inside joke then pardon my incursion

    8 ... Qf6 kinda keeps blacks material advantage + getting rid of whites pesky queen but hey, nice way to get a draw from a greedy person XD

    What happens after:
    1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+?! Kxf7 5.Nxe5+ Nxe5 6.Qh5+ Kf8 7.Qxe5 d6
    Seems like a logical way for Black to take the material & run.


    I much prefer the Evans Gambit. It provides more (albeit longer-term) attacking chances & pressure for less material sacrifice.

    Actually, on second thoughts I prefer 7...Qe7
    Give White a little taste of his own medicine.

    ANALYSIS
    The Jerome is simply good fun.
    Just enjoy the moment. I did.

    Black should not be allowed to win unless he
    sacs back three pieces.

    An RHP member has pointed me towards....

    jeromegambit.blogspot.com

    I had no idea my MARS ATTACK game was there - nor my
    'Masterly Analysis' (done with Todor Dimitrov).

    A good site by the way - dedicated to the Jerome.

    I'm all for fun, but this seems rather reckless compared with the Morra, Latvian & Traxler gambits because there appear to be several straightforward ways for Black to keep the material & repel the early attack.

    I can see how it could easily cause chaos in a 5 minute blitz game though

    I agree it is reckless - but at blitz it's OK.

    The three openings you mentioned do not always supply
    exciting chess.

    The Morra - Black does not hold onto the pawn 3.c3 d3 ugh!

    The Latvian 3.d4! and it's White who gets all the fun.

    Compare this with the Vienna Gambit where White gets the same
    position as Black in a VG a tempo up - it must be good.

    You will see me taking down a Latvian with 3.d4
    (heart breaking for me). 3.d4 is very close to a bust.

    The Traxler is a blue moon opening. I have never had to face
    4.Ng5 in a serious game (OK I hit them with the Latvian).
    But you can wait months for 4.Ng5 to be played against you.
    You have to hope to don't get a Lopez, Scotch etc and then
    you need your opponent to play 4.Ng5 when d3 or d4 are playable.

    All openings are capable of turning the board on fire. Even the
    London system player has to get his hands tactically
    dirty sometimes.

    best opening in 4 knights is to play halloweens gambit!!!
    MOST FUN EVER!!!

    Yes I've played that a few times as well. Once against an IM
    OTB. He looked astonished. So did I 22 moves later resigning.

    But it's called the Muller Gambit. Give the inventor of this wonderful
    opening the credit for being the first to play it.

    If you really want to see them fall off the chair with laughter.
    I've played this three times OTB with 3 wins.

    I'm White

    1.e4 Nf6 2.f3?! e5 f4!

    and you have a pure Lativian Gambit in reverse.
    (except they don't know it. They think they have a King's
    Gambit a tempo up.)

    If they don't play e5 (I faced 2...d6 & 2..c5) then you try and
    swing the game into something where f3 comes in handy.
    I have to admit though my score is less impressive if they
    do not play 2...e5.
