Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-07-07  Chicago Chess Man: Hebden should've played 9. Qe2+! But at this time he wasn't yet a master of the king's gambit.

  Domdaniel: Was this really played in 1982? I'd have guessed 1882 ... a magnificent disregard of material factors by both players.

  fredthebear: It's a real chore to know the theory accumulated in the King of Gambits. There are volumes of it, so one must be limited, pick and choose.

  fredthebear: If instead 6.Bc4, opening explorer gives:

1) -0.62 (28 ply) 6...d5 7.exd5

2) +0.12 (27 ply) 6...Qe7 7.Bxf7+ Kd8 8.d4 d6 9.Bxf4 Bd7 10.Nxd7 Qxe4+ 11.Qe2 Qxf4 12.Nxf6 Qc1+ 13.Kf2 Qf4+ 14.Kg1 Bg7 15.c3 Bxf6 16.Bh5 Nc6 17.Nd2 Nxd4 18.Qd3 Nc6 19.Rf1 Qh6 20.Ne4 Be7 21.Bxg4 Ne5 22.Qe2 Rf8 23.Rxf8+ Qxf8 24.Ng5 Bxg5 25.hxg5

3) +0.27 (27 ply) 6...Bg7 7.Bxf7+ Kf8 8.Bb3 Nxe4 9.d4 d6 10.Nxg4 h5 11.Qf3 Bxg4 12.Qxe4 Qe7 13.Qxe7+ Kxe7 14.c3 Nc6 15.O-O Raf8 16.Nd2 Bh6 17.Ne4 Na5 18.Ng5 Nxb3 19.axb3 a6 20.Bxf4 Kd7 21.Bd2 Re8 22.Rf7+ Kc8 23.Rf2 Rhf8 24.Rxf8 Rxf8 25.Ne4 Bxd2 26.Nxd2 Re8

4) +0.77 (27 ply) 6...Nc6 7.Bxf7+ Ke7 8.Bb3 Nxe5 9.d4 Ng6 10.h5 Bg7 11.Nc3 d6 12.hxg6 hxg6 13.Rxh8 Qxh8 14.Bxf4 Qh1+ 15.Kf2 g3+ 16.Bxg3 Ng4+ 17.Kf3 Nh2+ 18.Bxh2 Qxh2 19.Qh1 Qxh1 20.Rxh1 Bxd4 21.Rh7+ Kd8 22.Nb5 Bb6 23.Bf7 a6 24.Nc3 c6 25.Bxg6 Bc5 26.Bf7

Once again, ...d5 is the antidote to a double king pawn gambit.

Dec-08-21  Granny O Doul: 9. Qe2+ is indeed an improvement but note that Black has a lot of material for the queen after ...Qe7 10. Nf6+ Kd8 11. Bxc7+ Kxc7 12. Nd5+ Kd8 13. Nxe7 Bxe7.

  perfidious: Hebden likely saw the line beginning with 9.Qe2+ but realised it offered no succour, and preferred to keep the initiative.
