Dec-15-04  InspiredByMorphy: Schlechter plays a mean Kings gambit. Any muzio gambit fan would like this game as their is a similar sacrifice in the opening.

  IMlday: This double-round 1903 event in Vienna had games start after 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4. A wealthy patron put up big prizes and the field was very strong. Chigorin won ahead of American 'little kid' Frank Marshall. A surprise was Marco passing Pillsbury for third; maybe Marco's best result ever. Schlecter, not predisposed to KGA's was -4 (+5,-9,=4) in 9th place. Kudos to Teichman for giving Vienna's 'little kid' Schlechter an opportunity to demonstrate what's wrong with 3..f5?!. Nowadays players who want such a game defend 1.e4 e5 2.f4 Nc6!? 3.Nf3 f5 with an active, if not entirely sound position.
Aug-17-16  Christoforus Polacco: I play similar gambit against ''modern defence'' in KG : 1.e4 e5 2.f4 ef 3.Nf3 d5 4.e5 g5 5.d4 Nc6 6.c3 Be6 7.Bd3 g4 8.B:f4 gf 9.Q:f3 Qh4+ 10.Bg3 Qg4 11.Qf2 O-O-O 12.O-O Be7 13.Nd2 a5 14.a3 Re8 15.b4 f6 16.b5 Na7 17.ef N:f6 18.b6 cb 19.Rab1 Ne4 20.N:e4 de 21.Be2 Qg5 22.R:b6 B:a3 23.Ba6 ba 24.Rb8+ Kd7 25.Rb7+ Kc8 26.Rb8+ Kd7 27.Rb7+ Kc6 28.Rc7+ Kb6 29.d5+ e3 30.Qa2 B:e5 31.Q:a3 Bc6 32.Rb1+ Nb5 33.c4 Qf5 34.Qc1 Bb7 35.cb ab 36.R:b7+ K:b7 37.Qc7+ Ka6 38.Qc6+ Ka7 39.R:b5 Q:b5 40.Q:b5 and white wins after long endgame. Today I've played it again but black's game on the higher level was paradoxically much worse than before : 1.e4 e5 2.f4 ef 3.Nf3 d5 4.e5 g5 5.d4 g4 6.B:f4 gf 7.Q:f3 Nc6 8.c3 Bf5 9.Bd3 B:d3 10.Q:d3 f6 11.ef N:f6 12.O-O Bd6 13.Bg5 B:h2+ 14.Kh1 N:d4??? 15.B:f6 Qd6 16.B:h8 Nc6 and black is out.
