    Because open games tend to make that lead in development even more dangerous. Personally I like the kings gambit. I can't think of a gambit for black after 1e4 e5 that I like, but I suppose the Latvian is ok if you know your stuff.

    For white Kings gambit. Also Smith-Morra and maybe the Goring if you know it well. For Black Latvian is the only reasonable gambit unless you get into the Ruy then play the Marshall Attack.

    The Danish Gambit (for white) is AWESOME, but hardly anyone ever takes it anymore...

    I just took it vs. someone 250 points higher than me. I managed to get out of the worst part of it up a pawn. It's the same with the kings gambit.. I don't really see what's wrong with accepting it.

    Well, nothing in particular is wrong with it, it's just that white gets three pieces developed in trade for two pawns while black has no development. But black still has a chance if he develops quickly.

    The Danish isn't played much because black get equality by either A) declining the gambit with 3. ...d5 or B) giving back the pawns

    as black i think they should take it becuase they get material and can get even
