C30-39 King's Gambit

Chess Opening Data Base

 



 

White tries to solve the opening issue in a very direct way, at once sacrificing a pawn for the attack.  Black can accept or decline the pawn offer and can even counter-sacrifice the d5 pawn (Falkbeer counter-gambit).  Anyway Black has strong counterplay due to the exposed position of White's King.  The King's Gambit was intensively used in the 19th century at the time of romantic chess but nowadays seldom appears on the board.
