  tpstar: The Blackburne-Schilling-Kostic Gambit 3 ... Nd4!? is best met by 4. Nxd4 = Opening Explorer but not 4. Nxe5?! Qg5 = Opening Explorer where Black wins in a hurry.

One of our Academy students just fell for this stock trap at the state championship.

Mar-08-22  JimmyVermeer: I read that the opening was called the Blackburne Shilling Gambit because Blackburne would play amateurs for a shilling and win with the tricky move 3 ... Nd4 (Thus the extra C in Schilling is probably a typo). But it shouldn't be played against masters because it is easily refutable.

The game was exactly duplicated in Muhlock vs. Kostic, 1911.

  fredthebear: Here's that 1911 game: Muehlock vs Kostic, 1911

Perhaps 4.c3 forcing the Black knight to move again might be superior to exchanging knights at that point: Callum McNab vs S Reeve, 2003

  fredthebear: Should the Black knight retreat 4...Nc6, here's how the world-record blindfold champion played the 4.c3 line: T Gareyev vs James Dunn, 2016
