Good stuff, although from move 12 onwards the position is just a middle game

It has good shock value but I think Blitz is the only place where this pawn toss
will succeed though if I was 100% sure I be getting 2.Bf4 I would sling out ing 2...e5.
Don't know why I just don't play 1..e5 v 1.d4 and go for the Englund Trap.
I was going hog wild with gambits a few months ago, partially inspired by this excellent webpage:
And yes, I have even dabbled with 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 e5, which he labels the Omega-Osiris Gambit!
Be careful though, there is a lot of wild stuff there. 🙂
Edit: I almost always play 1.d4 e5 2.dxe5 d6 (or Nc6 with d6/f6 depending ... but no Qe7). I have only been really busted about 3 times out of 20, and I managed to save those games too. If I play something other than 1. ...e5, I'm just taking a break from it.
2nd Edit: 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 d5 from that site, does suprisingly well, provided you know a little about the Elephant Gambit.
