I've been getting crushed by the wing gambit and I'm having a hard time figuring out how to fight back. I've discovered, after a few defeats, that this may be a good option to play as white to avoid playing into my opponents favorite openings.
For example, in this game Game 4658452
I made a few opening mistakes. 5...Nf6? as I should have been more concerned with advancing the e and a pawns to block white attack lines. Also, keeping the white knight away from the weak b5 square should have been a priority.
I'm interested to know others' opinions on this gambit. Do you play it or recommend it for white? How do you take advantage of the pawn advantage as black? Any good games you have or know of that I can look at would also be helpful. Thanks.
