  tpstar: Life's a bummer/When you're a hummer. I was hoping to test out this museum piece exchange sacrifice line in the KGA Little Bishop's Gambit, which scores great for Black in the OE, but my opponent didn't cooperate. Maybe next time?

johnnydz3-tpstar0 (Yahoo 6/29/04): 1. e4 e5 2. f4 ef 3. Bc4 f5!? 4. d4 (4. ef d5) Nf6 5. e5 Ne4 6. Qh5+?! g6 7. Qe2 Qh4+ 8. g3 fg 9. hg?? (9. Nf3 g2+!; 9. Kf1 gh 10. Qxh2) Qxh1 10. Be3 d5 11. Bd3 Be6 12. Bxe4 dxe4?! (12 ... Qxe4) 13. Nd2 c6 14. 0-0-0 Qh5 15. Qf2 Bxa2 16. b3? Ba3++ (0-1).

  tpstar: This is an intentional sacrifice line planning to trap the whacked out Qh8, also owning the center. After 7. Qxh8 Nf6 Black is 3 for 3 = Opening Explorer
Sep-23-04  InspiredByMorphy: <tpstar> Nice game! After looking at it, I wanted to see what I would have done differently. I came up with the following analysis. 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Bc4 f5 4.exf5 d5 ( based on your annotation to move 4 in your game.) 5.Qh5+ Ke7 6.b3 dxc4 7.Ba3+ Kd7 8.Qf7+ Ne7 (...Be7 9.Nf3) 9.Nf3 Nc6 10.Ng5 . What do you think?

  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> I think I screwed up. The plan was 4. ef d5?! 5. Qh5+ g6 6. fg Nf6 but White has 7. g7+! Nxh5 8. gxh8=Q and Black is down a Rook. If 8 ... dxc4 9. Qe5+ gets Queens off (9 ... Qe7, otherwise 10. Qxh5), and if 8 ... Qh4+ 9. Kf1 Ng3+ (can't play 9 ... Bc5) 10. hxg3 Qxh1 11. Bxd5 and White is up a piece. Therefore 4. ef Nf6 is best, then 5. d4 d5 6. Bb3 Bd6 with a friendlier KGA position for Black than the other stuff.
Sep-25-04  InspiredByMorphy: <tpstar> Thanks for introducing me to 3. ...f5 . I looked into it and found its called the Gianutio countergambit. I think I found a better line for white than 4.exf5 . 1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Bc4 f5 4. Nc3 Nf6 5. d3 fxe4 6. Bxf4 Bb4 7. Bd2 exd3 8. Bxd3 O-O 9. Nf3 d5 10. O-O

  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> Intriguing line, isn't it!? What really caught my eye were the percentages; Black does incredibly well with 3. Bc4 f5!? although it hasn't been aired out in a long while. Your variation looks very solid; I would play 10 ... c6 (to avoid Nxd5 tricks) then 11 ... Bd6 with chances for both sides. Until I ever face it in real life, I'll probably transpose with 3. Bc4 d6 4. Nf3 h6 and such.
