Originally posted by GorgarThe Benko is probably the best countergambit for black against 1.d4 in that it is positionally grounded and has been played at the top level for a long time without there being a clear-cut refutation found against it (a bit like the Marshall against the Lopez). Of the other gambits mentioned, the Albin (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5) and the Budapest may be just about playable. Also worth mentioning is the von Hennig-Schara Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 4.cxd4 cxd4!?), which gives black some play for the pawn. However, the main problem for potential gambiteers is that so many boring d4 b*****ds prevent all this with 2.Nf3. How dare they!
Can someone direct me to a good site about a gambit to meet 1.d4,please?
Been browsing the net for over a hour but all I found are a few sites on the benko gambit and a few very,very obscure gambits.Not that the benko is bad but I would like to check out more options and they have to be at least remotely sound

I played PopeBambi a couple times, and both times he met my 1. d4 with an immediate e5. Not sure what kind of gambit it is, but I played 2. e4 and transposed to the dutch gambit. lol, I guess you're not looking for a gambit for white so I'm probably not helping
