Jul-27-15  PaulBl: Interesting game. Why is this opening called a gambit? As far as I see no pawn is offered in the opening, nor accepted.

Kind regards,

After 6. cxd5 Nxd5 7. Nxd5 Qxd5 8. Bxc7, white has won a pawn, though black has full compensation for it.

Jul-27-15  Marmot PFL: White can take a pawn by 6 cd5 Nxd5 7 Nxd5 Qxd5 8 Bxc7 but usually chooses to develop instead.
Jul-28-15  patzer2: In the final position, Black resigns in lieu of 46...Nxa2 47. Nb8+! Kd8 48. Ndc6+ Ke8 49. d7+ Kf7 50. d8=Q .
Jul-28-15  patzer2: White's slow squeeze to gain a space advantage is telling in this game. According to Fritz, the decisive mistake is likely 27...Nc7 when 28. Na5! (+1.30 @ 26 depth, Deep Fritz 14) is near decisive.
