    King's Gambit

    How good is the King's Gambit?
    A very boreded LolCat invented chess three thousand years ago on the 8th day of creation, after creating the Urfs and da skies.

    King's Gambit is not a solid opening...but still chess! Why is this is a non-chess thread?

    According to Fischer, Spassky said the Kings Gambit doesn't give White very much but then again neither does the Ruy Lopez or Giuoco Piano.

    I can recall playing it a couple of times against weaker opposition as well as once against N.Kagan in Vic champs. Many crazy and interesting lines...but way too complicated for my liking

    It seems to work well against lower rated opponents who don't know what to do against it...

    King's Gambit

    It is great for correspondence. I have been playing it for 50 years. The stodge merchants find the positions difficult to handle.
