What about "Rice Counter Gambit" in the Falkbeer tradition?
Perhaps. "Gambit" generally means the willingness to go down in material. The Falkbeer is a true gambit as Black's down a pawn in the ...e4 lines. In the Rice line, Black's merely returning the extra pawn - not really the same thing. ** EDIT ** I suppose if White can forcibly win either the f4 or g4 pawn, then it is a counter-gambit. I haven't looked at this aspect. ** END EDIT **
I think I misremembered the Abbazia / Modern line - that one is ...d5 without ...g5-g4. The earlier point about black choosing the line (=Defense) still applies.
