    I'm having good games whenever black tries to keep the pawn.
    Any tricks for black that I should be aware of?

    nothing that I can think of, black can decline the gambit and play 2...e5 getting into the elephant gambit which is considered advantageous for white, so you may want to have a line prepared just in case that happens but i suspect the majority are going to take the pawn and try to keep it. If you can get the book Tennison gambit by W.John Lutes he has done extensive historical and theoretical research.

    If you have games that you are wondering about send them to me wolfie and I will check them against the books analysis and post the notes - regards Robbie.

    Hi Wolfie.
    Here: (Black to play)


    His 7...a6 is a typical Blitz Blunder (I've even seen the same thinking in OTB games).
    Black can see the threat (Bb5+) and quickly thinks 7...a6 stops it.
    Of course it does not stop the Queen winning Bb5+ check.

    The RHP database:

    http://www.redhotpawn.com/gamesexplorer/index.php?movelist=&flip=0&co=-&u=-1&c=1400

    Has a few games with this line including games where Black played
    the risky biscuits move of 5...Qd4 holding onto the pawn. (see below).

    Hi Robbie.

    "...the elephant gambit which is considered advantageous for white."

    Good advice about having a line v The Elephant (though 2...c6 can also swing it into a Caro Kann).

    The Elephant at the lowers level tends to score OK because the Black player
    usually has an idea (a bit of theory) of what is going on.
    Often the White player is playing against it for the very first time.

    The RHP player Medievalist User 379039 scored well with this opening
    as Black winning 35 games, drawing 7 and losing 13.

    This includes an instructive win v a player I rate quite highly, Swiss Toni. Game 8035969
    Swiss T. hangs a piece (as we all do) - Black sacs it back (as we should do) to open up the White King.

    Here Black to play: Swiss Toni - Medievalist RHP 2011


    Black fell under the illusion he could not take the e4 Knight due to Re1.
    But 16...Qxe4 17.Re1 Rh1+ mops ups. Black played 16...0-0-0 but stlll won.

    A game with ideas for Wolfie.

    I'm playing OTB for the first time in 15 years in a couple of weeks; a Quick Play Swiss (30mins) I think I might roll this out then!
