The King's Gambit is an opening for white that consists of the moves
1. e4 e5 2. f4. It is an exciting opening that sacrifices a pawn for quick development. In a game of speed chess at chess.com versus Luokun1984c2 of England, I used the King's Gambit successfully. Here are the moves of the game along with my commentary:
1. e4 e5
2. f4 Nc6
More common moves for black are exf and d6.
3. Nf3 d6
4. Bc4 Nge7
Black's king bishop is trapped.
5. Ng5 d5
I target f7.
6. exd Nxd5
7. 0-0 e4
8. Nc3 f5
Black protects the e-pawn but the d5 knight is underprotected.
9. Bxd5 Bc5+
10. Kh1 Qf6
11. Bf7+ Ke7
Black fails to see the fork.
I fork the black king and queen. Already down a piece, black decides to resign. My ability to take advantage of the exposed king leads to a quick resignation.
