    How does a Danish Gambit (Accepted) Tourney sound?

    1. e4 e5 2. d4 exd4 3. c3 dxc3 4. Bc4 cxb2 5. Bxb2



    Black is two pawns up but white is far more developed.

    Interesting position (especially to defend), in my opinion.

    It's boring black has to easy a draw route.

    Black would be lucky to get a draw in my opinion. White is dominating the center and has developed both bishops, with the queen ready to move. Are the two pawns really worth terrific control and development?

    I honestly don't have a clue for what black should do, which is why I think it would be a fun (but very difficult) position to play as black.

    For white, Qb3 is often played, targeting f7. That's all I know, but it wouldn't take too long for white to fully develop after that, either.

    could black do something like f7?

    No, black can't move a pawn onto its own starting place. 😛

    Here, see for yourself.
